For any textarea, you can select SimpleMDE as the Inputfield Type. Once selected, that textarea will use the SimpleMDE editor. In order to take advantage of getting the markdown syntax to be parsed on output, you would want to add Markdown/Parsedown Extra to the output formatters.

Simple integration as processwire module. To use images with this field, it is recommended you use the Image Tags module, or Hanna Code. Also, for output, it has been tested and works so far using the Parsedown Textformatter.
