Could anyone please create a PortableApps version of Abricotine.

This is one of the best MarkDown editors out there.
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” Dr. Seuss
As far as I'm concerned, it writes data to Local App Data folder like any other application.
I don't mind the technology underneath, It can be Visual Basic as far as I'm concerned.
This program is a great MarkDown Editor.
The developer has a good plan a head and I want to use it within the PortableApps Platform.
I wish someone would add it.
It is really a great utility for developers.
If you use the app in your portable browser, it will store its data in the browser portably. No need to package it independently. I think that's what was being referred to.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
I'm not sure what you mean.
If you download it, there is an EXE file.
How can I run it inside the browser?
It's a 27 MB of Application File (EXE).
Could we have the whole package?
Really, this is much better than CureMarkEd.
I'm not sure I understand what to do, but I do understand I want it as part of my Application.
Unfortunately, in addition to the above, this app is only released as 64-bit for Windows. There is no 32-bit build. As such, it can not be released as an official app.
Are you telling me you prefer 32 Bit programs on 64 Bit?
I don't see the logic here, really.
I know 32 Bit can run on any system, but really, we're in 2016.
It's like mentioning the size of a file / program as a limitation.
I don't think those two things are relevant in our days.
If iPhone runs 64 Bit only, we can expect PC's to do so.

Some additional details for later use by packagers and devs...
Abricotine is a web/node-based app packaged with Electron. It is using a very old version of Electron for some reason, version 0.35.11 from November 2015, possibly because of changes within Electron's setup. Electron's current release is 1.2.1 from June 2016. Abricotine 0.3.2 released on April 7, 2016 is packaged as 64-bit only. It will work with unmodified Electron 0.35.11 x64 by dropping in the icons and resources folders. It will not work with unmodified Electron 0.35.11 x86 and produces the following error:
Error: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

This error appears to be due to the fact that spellchecker.node is a binary file, likely a plugin for the 'browser' within Electron. This plugin is likely 64-bit only. The source code does not appear to be included within Abricotine's source files. There appears to be a github issue relating to this filed in the app's github project: https://github.com/brrd/Abricotine/issues/31
The app does not start when dropped into the modern Electron build, but that may be due to needing additional configuration.
It should also be noted that this app is very large, weighing in at 204MB.
Maybe as an alternative one could make a portable version of Haroopad:
We really need a good Markdown Editor in the Suite (The current one is pretty week).
