Markdown editing. Redefined.
This is an extension pack of related markdown extensions that I wrote, which add rich editing powers to markdown documents.
The advantage that this extension pack has over an extension such as Markdown All in One is that it is much smaller and is modular. You can disable features by disabling a particular extension. You can go a step further and only install the extensions you want. This gives you a similar feature set, but with a lot more control.

- Marky Dynamic: Automate updating dynamic content such as Table of Contents.
- Markdown Snippets: Snippets for extended markdown syntax.

Major Features Overview
1) Toggle-style editing
Toggle-style editing offers a more natural editing experience. It enables you to mark or unmark text as you type, and insert markdown fragments as snippets for simple completion.
For more information, see Marky Edit.
2) Dynamic content
Editing and reformating documents can leave content such as table of contents out of sync with the rest of the document. This extension enables you to update the table of contents when you save the document.
For more information, see Marky Dynamic.

Provides snippets for extended markdown syntax.
For more information, see Markdown Snippets.
