    Docs Markdown Editor is a rich web editor with markdown editing and WYSIWYG functionality to be plugged in to multiple authoring sites including Docs, Q&A, Renewal Asessments, and Self Assessments. The editor itself is built on top of the Stack Overflow Stacks Editor. This repos purpose is to build a rich editing experience without the overhead of docs-ui and create a light weight development experience for developing editors that will be plugged into the authoring sites above.
