We built the editor from scratch to make sure that we'll always have the flexibility to implement the features that we want at the high quality that we aim for. Here are some of the features that we've implemented so far:


The sidebar helps you work with files and headings. It lets you filter / preview / move / rename / delete files, open files in tabs, quickly switch from one file to the next, view the headings in the current file and a lot more.

Go To

The "Go To" tools in Caret allow you to quickly jump to a file, folder, heading or command with the minimum amount of keystrokes.


Modes let you adapt the app to your workflow. Work at night? Turn night mode on. Need to focus on the current block? Enable focus mode. Want to see what other people would see - enable preview.


Since the first release of Caret in late 2015, people from all over the world and all kinds of backgrounds have said very kinds words about it.
