A simple, beautiful, and embeddable JavaScript Markdown editor. Delightful editing for beginners and experts alike. Features built-in autosaving and spell checking.


SimpleMDE - Markdown Editor

A drop-in JavaScript textarea replacement for writing beautiful and understandable Markdown. The WYSIWYG-esque editor allows users who may be less experienced with Markdown to use familiar toolbar buttons and shortcuts. In addition, the syntax is rendered while editing to clearly show the expected result. Headings are larger, emphasized words are italicized, links are underlined, etc. SimpleMDE is one of the first editors to feature both built-in autosaving and spell checking.



Why not a WYSIWYG editor or pure Markdown?

WYSIWYG editors that produce HTML are often complex and buggy. Markdown solves this problem in many ways, plus Markdown can be rendered natively on more platforms than HTML. However, Markdown is not a syntax that an average user will be familiar with, nor is it visually clear while editing. In otherwords, for an unfamiliar user, the syntax they write will make little sense until they click the preview button. SimpleMDE has been designed to bridge this gap for non-technical users who are less familiar with or just learning Markdown syntax.

  • autoDownloadFontAwesome: If set to true, force downloads Font Awesome (used for icons). If set to false, prevents downloading. Defaults to undefined, which will intelligently check whether Font Awesome has already been included, then download accordingly.
  • autofocus: If set to true, autofocuses the editor. Defaults to false.
  • autosave: Saves the text that's being written and will load it back in the future. It will forget the text when the form it's contained in is submitted.

Toolbar icons

Below are the built-in toolbar icons (only some of which are enabled by default), which can be reorganized however you like. "Name" is the name of the icon, referenced in the JS. "Action" is either a function or a URL to open. "Class" is the class given to the icon. "Tooltip" is the small tooltip that appears via the title="" attribute. Note that shortcut hints are added automatically and reflect the specified action if it has a keybind assigned to it (i.e. with the value of action set to bold and that of tooltip set to Bold, the final text the user will see would be "Bold (Ctrl-B)").

Additionally, you can add a separator between any icons by adding "|" to the toolbar array.

Name Action Tooltip
bold toggleBold Bold
fa fa-bold
italic toggleItalic Italic
fa fa-italic
strikethrough toggleStrikethrough Strikethrough
fa fa-strikethrough
heading toggleHeadingSmaller Heading

Customize the toolbar using the toolbar option like:

// Customize only the order of existing buttons
var simplemde = new SimpleMDE({
	toolbar: ["bold", "italic", "heading", "|", "quote"],

// Customize all information and/or add your own icons
var simplemde = new SimpleMDE({
	toolbar: [{
			name: "bold",
			action: SimpleMDE.toggleBold,
			className: "fa fa-bold",
			title: "Bold",
			name: "custom",
			action: function customFunction(editor){
				// Add your own code
			className: "fa fa-star",
			title: "Custom Button",
		"|", // Separator

Keyboard shortcuts

SimpleMDE comes with an array of predefined keyboard shortcuts, but they can be altered with a configuration option. The list of default ones is as follows:

Shortcut Action
Cmd-' "toggleBlockquote"
Cmd-B "toggleBold"
Cmd-E "cleanBlock"
Cmd-H "toggleHeadingSmaller"
Cmd-I "toggleItalic"
Cmd-K "drawLink"
Cmd-L "toggleUnorderedList"
Cmd-P "togglePreview"
Cmd-Alt-C "toggleCodeBlock"
Cmd-Alt-I "drawImage"
Cmd-Alt-L "toggleOrderedList"
Shift-Cmd-H "toggleHeadingBigger"
F9 "toggleSideBySide"
F11 "toggleFullScreen"

Here is how you can change a few, while leaving others untouched:

var simplemde = new SimpleMDE({
	shortcuts: {
		"toggleOrderedList": "Ctrl-Alt-K", // alter the shortcut for toggleOrderedList
		"toggleCodeBlock": null, // unbind Ctrl-Alt-C
		"drawTable": "Cmd-Alt-T" // bind Cmd-Alt-T to drawTable action, which doesn't come with a default shortcut

Shortcuts are automatically converted between platforms. If you define a shortcut as "Cmd-B", on PC that shortcut will be changed to "Ctrl-B". Conversely, a shortcut defined as "Ctrl-B" will become "Cmd-B" for Mac users.

The list of actions that can be bound is the same as the list of built-in actions available for toolbar buttons.


To change the minimum height (before it starts auto-growing):

.CodeMirror, .CodeMirror-scroll {
	min-height: 200px;

Or, you can keep the height static:

.CodeMirror {
	height: 300px;

Event handling

You can catch the following list of events: https://codemirror.net/doc/manual.html#events

var simplemde = new SimpleMDE();
simplemde.codemirror.on("change", function(){

Removing SimpleMDE from textarea

You can revert to the initial textarea by calling the toTextArea method. Note that this clears up the autosave (if enabled) associated with it. The textarea will retain any text from the destroyed SimpleMDE instance.

var simplemde = new SimpleMDE();
simplemde = null;

Useful methods

The following self-explanatory methods may be of use while developing with SimpleMDE.

var simplemde = new SimpleMDE();
simplemde.isPreviewActive(); // returns boolean
simplemde.isSideBySideActive(); // returns boolean
simplemde.isFullscreenActive(); // returns boolean
simplemde.clearAutosavedValue(); // no returned value

How it works

SimpleMDE began as an improvement of lepture's Editor project, but has now taken on an identity of its own. It is bundled with CodeMirror and depends on Font Awesome.

CodeMirror is the backbone of the project and parses much of the Markdown syntax as it's being written. This allows us to add styles to the Markdown that's being written. Additionally, a toolbar and status bar have been added to the top and bottom, respectively. Previews are rendered by Marked using GFM.

  • Side by side preview

    Side by side preview

    Again thank you Wes, great lib. Here is my approach of the only thing missing heh... (actually 3).

    https://jsfiddle.net/xb0rbkvk/9 A split button goes to fullscreen where left is editor, right is preview. 50/50. Preview is live updated and scrolls are synced (roll code, preview rolls too).

    Not creating a PR to consult you first, JS ain't my forte. And... I (and my editor) share massive OCD, so I removed all blanks and changed tabs by spaces. Also added strike through (github markdown but marked supported) and tables.

    CodeMirror not defined

    I just upgraded from version 1.10.1 to 1.11.0, and the exact same setup I had before now throws the error...

    CodeMirror is not defined

    anywhere that SimpleMDE tries to use CodeMirror. Reverting back to 1.10.1 resolves the problem. I'm really not sure where the error could be; my gulpfile just copies node_modules/simplemde/dist/simplemde.min.js to the requisite scripts directory in my application. It's worked great up until 1.11.0.

    Is there any API to get an instance of SimpleMDE?

    Apologies if this is not the right place to ask this question...

    My use case is pretty simple. I have one textarea on my page, on pageload I create a new instance of SimpleMDE (new SimpleMDE({element: $('#markdown-editor')[0]});).

    In my integration test I'd like to programmatically set the contents of the SimpleMDE. Is there a way to retrieve the instance of SimpleMDE that is already on the page? Maybe something like var simplemde = SimpleMDE.get({element: $('#markdown-editor')[0]});

  • Cursor can be misplaced in some line wrapping situations

    Cursor can be misplaced in some line wrapping situations


    1. Place cursor in the end of the first list item (i.e. after "indexation")
    2. Type one character (e.g. "q")
    3. Remove it (backspace)
    4. Move cursor down one line using keyboard and type something

    Note, after (3) cursor is already in wrong position, but if you proceed typing/deleting it will fix itself. Seems like (4) messes it up completely

    Plain CodeMirror does not have this kind of bug https://jsfiddle.net/o335vwsw/6/

    I've tried to compress CodeMirror to include 'gfm' mode and create a jsfiddle with it, but it does not work for me (see console output here)

    It might be a problem related to gfm mode, but I'm not sure.

  • simplemde does not work correctly in bootstrap modal

    simplemde does not work correctly in bootstrap modal

    I need simplemde to work with bootstrap modal, currently there are some problems with that.

    I'll describe them here:

    First problem is when I initialize the editor in the bootstrap popup it does not show the text


    only when I click inside the editor does it display the text


    Second problem is when I toogle to side by side view, add some content in the editor, in this case I added lots of content, and when I exit side by side mode not all content is visible in the editor, in this case last line visible is: ## some content here, bla bla bla 9

    as you can see it's not possible to scroll down beneath the line bla bla bla 9 even if there is more content there

    Third problem is with css, when I am in side by side mode I would like it to be responsive, and it's only responsive horizontally right now, since I've had to use px to set the height, it will for whateve reason not work with % which would make it responsive vertically as well

    Fourth problem is the highlighting of some words, I am not sure why it's doing this, there is spellcheck feature but I have it set to false when I initialize the editor. I would like to remove the highlighting of words, it's distracting.

    Also worth mentioning the editor works just fine if it is not used inside bootstrap modal scroll works and all content is scrollable when comming back from side by side mode and inserting lots of text.

    With some more research I've discovered if I set content tab as active instead of basic tab being active first then the content in the markdown editor will be directly visible, if basic tab is active and I have to switch to content tab my self then the content is not visible until I click inside the editor.

    If anyone can fix these errors I am willing to pay for it.

    I've created a demo of this here: https://www.sendspace.com/file/ejdoh6

    The value() method is returning the original markdown string. Since the editor is already generating the html for preview, exposing that generated string (or the generator method) would be helpful (instead of user explicitly trying to do the conversion again from the value() returns)
