I use Markdown for site content a great deal and would like for PhpStorm to be as good for writing in Markdown as it is for PHP, HTML and CSS. But the third-party plug-in providing Markdown support is missing a lot of features and doesn't handle the more modern Markdown language variations.
I have no experience at the PhpStorm API nor Java development, so there's not so much I can do.
Is someone with that experience willing to fork the plug-in and bring it up to date? JetBrains doesn't seem like they will - I've asked them several times and they just point to the existing one as if that's good enough. It's not.
