get stream as: markdown or atom

I like really impressed by how useful a well designed Markdown editor can be in previewing the final result.

Why can't we have the same thing for linguistics.

Imagine what a basic CFG syntax markdown could look like. I could write simple rules:

S --> NP VP NP --> Det N VP --> V NP

And they'd just be converted into a simple tree in the preview just like that (without lexical items in notes).

And we could have:

[.S [.NP Something ] [.VP [.V like ] [.NP this ] ] ]

There's no reason why not.


LaTeX. That's a thing I should probably be more familiar with...
