Will Panda stay as a standalone editor


I have been searching for this subject, so please excuse me if this has been asked before.

Will Panda continue to be supported as a standalone editor once it has been rolled into Bear? I’m thinking especially on iOS. I appreciate having access to a standalone text editor, and do have other options, but enjoy using Panda and so wondered what the roadmap was for it once Bear 2.0 is out.

Thank you,

Hi David,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a post. I can see that this is your first time posting on the forum, so welcome to the community!

Regarding the above question, Panda was initially just meant to be a throwaway tester for the new Editor for Bear.

However, due to customer feedback we are now thinking about possibly also having Panda as a standalone Editor after it’s added into Bear!

Our priority at the moment is to complete and implement our new Editor for Bear. Everything else will be re-evaluated after the new Editor is released but hoping this explanation helps! :bear:


I would also chime in and say that as a developer myself, I would greatly appreciate if it was possible to use the Panda editor in my own app!


I would like to offer my encouragement to Panda’s developers to continue the development of Panda as a standalone, file-based Markdown editor. It is easily the most beautiful and elegant WYSIWYG Markdown editor on the Mac and on iOS/iPadOS. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece of software!

A very belated thank you for your reply. I understand your priorities and look forward to seeing what decision that you come to regarding Panda.
