Self recommendation of project leader:
@The world of passerby A:WP Editor.md The first version, released in 2017, is a rare markdown editor and formula editor plug-in under WordPress. The core part is based on the Editor.md (this plug-in fork will continue to be developed independently), support markdown editing and preview, and also support latex Formula writing, code highlighting, mind map drawing, external map bed, flow chart drawing and other functions.
In the past three years, with the efforts of Jaxson Wang, another author (who has left the project team at present), this plug-in has gained nearly 3700 monthly live users, with a total installation of over 80000. The source code library hosted in GitHub also has 500 + stars. Since the ecology of WordPress in China is not big enough, I am very happy to have achieved such achievements.
As I have some pressure in my studies and career (I’m currently practicing), the development speed may not be as fast as other open source projects, and the new version is usually released once about two months. However, I am willing to write articles to introduce the functions, features and skills of this plug-in frequently. I am also willing to actively communicate with users in the community to help users solve problems.
With an easy-to-use plug-in, bloggers can be more focused on creating, rather than looking for compromise solutions.
WordPress updated the Gutenberg editor in version 5.0 to support markdown. Although Gutenberg was born with the golden key, it is far less friendly to markdown than our open source project WP today Editor.md 。 WP Editor.md It supports the native markdown syntax very friendly, but also adds a lot of functions: latex formula writing, code highlighting, mind map drawing, external map bed, flow chart drawing.
In the process of communication with the author, the author mentioned that the segmentfault has a very special significance for him. “When I started self-learning software development in 2017, the Q & a function of segmentfault helped me a lot on the way of my poor self-study.”
Now, after “self-taught”, the author hopes that through his own open source project, more users who want to build their own websites can learn about WordPress, fall in love with WordPress, and be able to use WP Editor.md Get an excellent markdown editing experience and bring more convenience for developers.
The project has been selected“Sfossp – Open Source Project Support Plan”We hope to use the resources of the community to promote the open source projects, and as a long-term project to help the development of the open source cause, and to build a new open source ecology with the majority of developers.
