Now this is really rather fine. Byword, which is my weapon of choice when it comes to writing pretty much everything, has been updated with support for Markdown syntax. If Markdown doesn’t mean anything to you, then don’t worry about it to much1. If, on the other hand, you want it, you’ll probably want Byword too.
Byword’s Markdown support extends to a preview mode, so you can actually see what your post will look like like. And your blogging platform doesn’t need to understand Markdown: all you need to do is copy and paste the HTML which Byword outputs.
Byword is available from the Mac App Store, and there’s a free trial available for download from the Byword store.
- Actually, do. Markdown makes it really easy to do things like footnotes, which you might like. ↩
