Project summary


Markor is a TextEditor for Android. Ver​sat​ility, inter​optab​ility, and light​weight​ness are the main properties of the project. Markor utilizes simple markup formats like Markdown and todo.txt for keeping notes and managing todo lists. Due its big versatility at working with text it can also be used for keeping bookmarks, copying to clipboard, fast opening a link from text and lots of more. Markor and its created files are interoptable with any other plaintext software on any platform. Markor is not only using open formats, it’s also free software, is openly developed and accepts community contributions.


📝 Create notes and manage your todo list by using simple markup formats
🌲 Works completly offline, always ready when and whereever needed
👌 Interoptable with any other plaintext software on any platform - edit with notepad or vim, filter with grep, convert to PDF, create zip archive

🖍 Syntax Highlighting and format related actions like insert picture and list
📄 Open and edit documents of other apps and shared texts
👀 Convert, preview and share documents as HTML and PDF

📚 Notebook: All documents are stored on a common filesystem folder
📓 QuickNote: Quickly share into a fast accessible Markdown document
☑️ To-Do: Quickly share into your fast accessible ToDo list
🔖 LinkBox: Share pages to read later into your bookmark list
🖍 Markup formats: Markdown and todo.txt
📋 Copy to clipboard: Copy any text, text shared into Markor can be directly copied too
💡 Notebook is the root folder of documents and can be changed to any location on filesystem. LinkBox, QuickNote and ToDo are textfiles

🎨 Highly customizeable, most components can be fully customized to needs. Dark/night and light theme available
💾 Auto-Save with options for undo/redo
👌 Zero ads or unnecessary permissions
🌎 Language selection - use other language than overall on the system
🔲 Launcher widget available - open documents fast, create new ones, or quickly open QuickNote/ToDo/LinkBox

💡 Note that Markor unlike office suites (like LibreOffice) or todo apps (like Wunderlist) doesn’t have any other layouts or modes than editing and viewing text and will never have. Markor shows how powerful and expressive simple text can be. All that can be seen and done in the app is editing, viewing, manipulating and converting plaintext!

🔃 Markor works with sync apps, but they have to do syncing respectively. Sync clients known to work in combination include BitTorrent Sync, Dropbox, FolderSync, OwnCloud, NextCloud, Seafile, Syncthing, Syncopoli

👀 These apps may also be in your interest if you like Markor: OneNote, EverNote, Google Keep, Wunderlist, Read-It-Later, Pocket, Epsilon Notes, iA Writer, Todoist, Shaarli, Wallabag, Simple Notes, Simpletask, Share to clipboard, NextCloud Bookmarks, Easy Open Link


The app doesn’t use the internet connection unless external resources are referenced in user created documents on purpose. Otherwise it’s working completly offline. No personal data, like calendar or contacts information are requested or shared. Documents can be shared to other apps from inside the app by pressing the share button. Document will be stored locally in the device public documents folder or in a custom folder.
