    You wanted Mermaid diagrams, you got 'em (plus many other diagrams). You asked for dark themes, you got 'em. You suggested a distraction-free and minimal UI, so now it can do that, too. You called for GitLab-flavoured Markdown, you... well, will still have to wait. I wanted to keep plain text content wholly separated from presentation yet still produce beautifully typeset PDF documents and high-quality technical documentation. Four years later, with boatloads of people to thank, I got 'em.

    Take a look: one plain text document produces three distinct PDF files in a few clicks (or keystrokes).

    My text editor, KeenWrite, is now integrated with the ConTeXt typesetting software. After installing the editor, install the typesetter by following the instructions.

    Thoughts?

        KeenWrite is based off of Markdown Writer FX; the screenshot shows a few GFM options available. Adding the feature should be fairly straightforward by comparing the two code bases. A PR is welcome!
