Hog Bay Software is looking for input on their upcoming product, FoldingText. It’s in a relatively early beta state, but it has some serious potential as a Markdown editor.

If you haven’t seen FoldingText, it’s similar in concept to Velletta. If you haven’t seen Valletta, the idea is to provide a more transparent environment for editing Markdown. While the marked-up text is focused, it looks like Markdown, but when the cursor leaves it automatically converts to a rich text representation. It’s like a Markdown preview and an editor seamlessly combined.

FoldingText has some nice display features and customizable themes are on the way. It’s free to try right now, and your feedback is needed on the support forums. Give it a shot and let Jesse and crew know what you think! You can grab the latest build at the end of the announcement post.
