    Extract YAML front matter from strings

    What we want is for our editor to take the combination of front-matter data and markup, then be able to extract the two before storing that data separately somewhere. We'll be using the front-matter module to extract the data we need from the text editor content.

  • marked

    A markdown parser and compiler. Built for speed.

    Note: marked provides the following warning "Marked does not sanitize the output HTML. Please use a sanitize library, like DOMPurify (recommended), sanitize-html or insane on the output HTML!"

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • UI kit

    A lightweight and modular front-end framework for developing fast and powerful web interfaces

    UIKit's css framework has been used to create the template for the editor as you'll notice from the CSS classes but feel free to style the editor to your liking.
