Blocks Rock. Create content via different types of blocks, like Markdown blocks, image blocks, list blocks, etc. Making your own block types is easy!
textarea's are for text. Edit your content in a textarea like God intended. No, it's not WYSIWYG, but it is universally COMPATIBLE, which is pretty cool.
Makona is in the very early stages of life, and it's goals are a bit different than other block-syle editors, such as Sir Trevor.
<textarea>(as opposed to a contenteditable div), so we sacrifice WYSIWYG while actually editing, but we gain universal compatibility.
If you would like to learn React JS and contribute to the development of Makona, especially the visual style, come see us on Github.
