✨ I found out ~50% of my support tickets on remoteok.com were about Markdown issues:

- non-tech people don't understand it
- format is inconsistent
- buggy if complex like * a list with **bold text**

So I now switched to TinyMCE which is HTML: tiny.cloud

We went from a completely custom DraftJS (now Lexical) implementation to TinyMCE and did not lose any sleep over it.

I did a deep dive on this not long ago, TinyMCE is really the only one worth building with.

Thanks! I tried many other tools - all open-source and came to the conclusion that many people may disagree with.

I decided to go with TinyMCE not because it's open-source but because they have a commercial license what may mean they will fix bugs and add great features faster.
