#CodiMD on matrix.org
build status

CodiMD lets you create real-time collaborative markdown notes. You can test-drive
it by visiting our CodiMD demo server.

Note: CodiMD is in the process of changing its name to HedgeDoc.

It is inspired by Hackpad, Etherpad and similar collaborative editors. This
project originated with the team at HackMD and now forked
into its own organisation. A longer writeup can be read in the history doc.
