so there is this very nice markdown editor, typora https://typora.io/
someone told me that it is available in aur in arch , so i thought that it could be possible to have it here with mx
it is not something urgent of course, but it would be nice to have it (i used it and it seems really good)

thanks a priori

Have you tried the sequence posted for installation (>> image)?

https://typora.io/#linux

It looks pretty simple, and it would be helpful to us to know whether it works on MX-16 (and, for that matter, MX-17 when it shows up).

I'm fairly sure that "sudo add-apt-repository" won't work in default MX, for good reasons.

I also don't see any source download, and this raises a flag:
* Free during beta.
So it seems to be a closed source Electron application, free at least during the beta. If it's Electron, then there should be no problems running it on MX.

some questions...
if we install ubuntu repositeries, don't we end up with a frankendebian situation?
that closed source electron application means that it might not be safe?

We have a good Wiki page on the topic that might help:

**Typora** is developed by [@LeeAbner](https://twitter.com/LeeAbner). All rights reserved.
It uses about 3 dozen other open source projects internally under various licenses.

They do provide binary packages here: http://support.typora.io/Typora-on-Linux/ which you can download, extract and run (Just click on Typora in the extracted folder). Since that doesn't install anything it shouldn't upset anything either.

Hey guys, this is my first post here so pardon my lack of deeper workings of MX.
Since MX now has access to a whole range of repositories that cater more to the user comfort than strictly libre software (flatpacks for example), why there isn’t a way to simply instal Typora?
It is still free, arguably popular, there is unofficial AppImage, Snap and FlatPack and the second it becomes commercial you can just provide legacy version.
Is there a way users can "vote" something like Typora into MX or are the licences and promise of later monetization an issue?

I’m currently running Deepin because they are not so strict on libre apps.
But I like MX better from the community standpoint, and even the philosophy and vision of the project is closer to my heart.
When I try new distro I always look for Typora, because fundamentally I don’t have moral problems with paid software on Linux. Arch based distros all have it, Deepin in the only debian based I know that offers it.
It would be great to have it in some repo — And yes, I understand I can just download AppImage or FlatPack and be just done with it. It is more curiosity. Thanks for the reply!
