    From Apostrophe it should be noted that it can be exported to various formats, three types of slides to view online, the obvious html, epub, pdf, odt, docx. And having some settings in the markdown frontmatter and being well structured, you can publish a book without much effort to the mentioned formats. I love this editor along with Typora.
