    If you're looking for a markdown notetaking app, my recommendation is ThiefMD. It has a library, syntax highlighting, decent previews, typewriter scrolling, writebetter integration and a lot of theming options.

    The two best I have used are Apostrophe and ThiefMD. Both are available as a flatpak if your distro doesn't have them in the repos. Apostrophe is the nicer writing experience for a single document and exports through pandoc. ThiefMD isn't as good at exporting, but it has a wide variety of themes available, and keeps an organized library for you, similar to Ulysses on mac os, which makes it perfect for notes and longform writing. Regrettably, there doesn't appear to be in the settings for RTL for either of them...
