    console.log("Hello World");
    // And this is a comment here
}

About the code

This thing is not tested on IE

You can do a view-source of the markdown-editor (HTML) to see the code. It is a single large-HTML file and will work if copied to your desktop. All external references are from CDNs. Most of the code is just related to the look-and-feel for this editor.

Here we use AngularJS to get the updates from the textarea via the angular-model. This makes it easier to watch changes - however this can be done by writing a bit of code without AngularJS too.

We use the Showdown javascript library to create HTML from input Markdown. Basically you would do that as shown below:

var converter = new Showdown.converter();
var html = converter.makeHtml(newstr);
