KeenWrite reviews and mentions
Text Search with Tries

My text editor, KeenWrite, provides the ability to write documents while using variables. Having variable names sprinkled throughout a document requires a fast mechanism to replace all of the variables with their corresponding values. I wrote a benchmark comparing Apache's StringUtils versus the Aho-Corasick algorithm, using Robert Bor's Trie implementation that may be illuminating.

A Spellchecker Used to Be a Major Feat of Software Engineering

In some ways, I think computational linguistics (for English) has missed a mark. We have dictionaries, lexicons, grammar engines, spell checkers, pluralization rules, and quotation disambiguation. You'd think we could roll all these into a unified, standard definition format.
My KeenWrite editor, for instance, uses:
* https://github.com/DaveJarvis/KeenSpell (spell check, lexicon)
* https://github.com/DaveJarvis/KeenQuotes (curls straight quotes)
* https://github.com/DaveJarvis/KeenWrite/blob/main/R/pluraliz... (pluralization)
I was looking at integrating LanguageTool for grammar and realized that it has partial functionality for KeenQuotes (lexing and tokenization), duplicates the SymSpell algorithm used by KeenSpell, and because it offers grammar corrections it likely can pluralize words, as well.
Unifying those for English alone would be a massive undertaking.

ConTeXt integrates Lua. KeenWrite is my text editor that converts Markdown to XHTML then pipes that XML document into ConTeXt for typesetting. ConTeXt does an amazing job of keeping presentation logic separated from the content. Meaning, once you've created a theme template, it's easy to pick it back up to create new ones.
There's a video series showing how to use KeenWrite.

May I recommend ConTeXt?
For my purposes, KeenType was only meant to provide a real-time "rough draft" of equations rendered inside of KeenWrite, my FOSS Markdown editor. That is, I edit in Markdown, then KeenWrite converts the inline TeX-based equations for previewing. When I'm ready to create a "finished" product, KeenWrite exports the Markdown to XHTML then feeds the XHTML, along with a theme, to ConTeXt. The various themes are where font faces sizes, alignment, kerning, etc. are tweaked. In this way content remains completely separated from presentation.
Architecture diagrams should be code

KeenWrite, the FOSS Markdown text editor I’ve been working on, includes the ability to render plain text diagrams via Kroki†. See the screenshots for examples. Here’s a sample Markdown document that was typeset using ConTeXt (and an early version of the Solare theme).
One reason I developed KeenWrite was to use variables inside of plain text diagrams. In the genealogy diagram, when any character name (that’s within the diagram) is updated, the diagram regenerates automatically. (The variables are defined in an external YAML file, allowing for integration with build pipelines.)
Version 3.x containerizes the typesetting system, which greatly simplifies the installation instructions that allow typesetting Markdown into PDF files. It also opens the door to moving Kroki into the container so that diagram descriptions aren’t pushed over the Internet to be rendered.
†Kroki, ergo KeenWrite, supports BlockDiag (BlockDiag, SeqDiag, ActDiag, NwDiag, PacketDiag, RackDiag), BPMN, Bytefield, C4 (with PlantUML), Ditaa, Erd, Excalidraw, GraphViz, Nomnoml, Pikchr, PlantUML, Structurizr, SvgBob, UMLet, Vega, Vega-Lite, and WaveDrom.
Note that Mermaid diagrams generate non-conforming SVG, so they don’t render outside of web browsers. There is work being done to address this problem.
Is it possible to add LaTeX commands to a markdown file?

KeenWrite leverages KeenWrite Themes to change how documents are presented. The Tarmes theme is an example of a very basic theme, meant to act as a base for making new themes. Take a look at Tarmes, which is probably the closest answer to your question. Feel free to add issues against the issue tracker or add questions to the discussion area.5 projects | reddit.com/r/Markdown | 6 Jan 2023
My editor, KeenWrite allows typesetting of TeX, as shown in its screenshots. The reason I developed the editor to be TeX-based is because there are other TeX implementations besides LaTeX. One of them is ConTeXt.
