I want a simple post editor for WordPress, it should be something like tumblr editor or the stackoverflow editor.

My questions:

  1. Is there any plugin I can use? (I just can't find it)
  2. If no plugin, how can I implement it? Is there any example?

(I saw one site has such editor using WordPress, but they have reworked their site now)

What's wrong with the default visual editor? – shea Dec 25 '12 at 8:32
It is just too complicated for my case, I want a simpler one,like the tumblr editor. – Wint Dec 25 '12 at 9:12

You can use the Stackexchange Editor with the WP-Markdown Plugin, created by Steve Harris in this Question.
