    Writing markdown is a daily work for most programers. Switch between your favorate code editor or IDE and a nice markdown editor like typora, marktext, iA Writer, Ulysses or obsidian.md could be annoying. That's why I make this extension --- vscode-markdown-editor.

  • how to use Mathjax as the default markdown rendering method in VS code
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/vscode | 19 Jun 2022
    I am thinking about this question for a long time... In GitHub vscode issues, this post said that the developers of the vscode don't have a plan to support Mathjax in the near future. However, in Markdown Preview Enhanced extension, the author of this extension provided Mathjax as one of the math rendering options MPE. The reason why I didn't use this extension is that it has an annoying bug when I tried to use the autonumbering function to reference my equations. Details can be seen in this issue page post.
