Markdown Editor

So this is a markdown editor I made using flask and html. It's probably nowhere near as good as repl.it's one but I thought I would give it a try. Please leave and feedback or suggestions.

Cool! A couple of problems though:

Adding an asterisk and then adding a space after it and a character gives a numbered list. Also quotes are an arrow (>) followed by a space.

> c is the way it should be, >c shouldn't be but also is counted as a quote.

Other than that, nice!

Oh and also, add slashes (two ~~). Make sure though that a space after the slash and a character is not allowed (~~ slash~~ should not be allowed, but this should be: ~~slash~~).

You also might want to add syntax highlighting for languages (it's a bit more complicated).

@Baconman321 Yeah I think the parser that I used for it had disparities compared to the type of markdown repl.it uses. I'll try to see if I can fix those issues. Thank for the feedback!

@IMayBeMe You should make the parser yourself.

Then you can truly call it your MD editor.

@Baconman321 Yeah I probably should, I was doing this more for flask and HTML but I'll try to make the parser myself.

@IMayBeMe Nice! I look forward to seeing it!

@Baconman321 I'm not sure how good it will be because I have really limited experience with parsing but I will give it a try!
