ghostwriter is a distraction-free text editor for Markdown featuring
a live HTML preview as you type, theme creation, focus mode, fullscreen
mode, live word count, and document navigation in an aesthetic writing
environment. It comes with the cmark-gfm Markdown processor built in, and
can integrate with Pandoc, MultiMarkdown, Discount, and cmark
processors if they are installed.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install ghostwriter, simply use the following command:
