Mac users who code web sites typically use more than one text editor, though one is likely to have been used many years, and gets used more often than others. Trying out a new text editor is often an exercise in frustration as new features don’t always fit well with long-used workflows.
Bloggers, on the other hand, often have a need to deal with HTML, but don’t want all the clumsy functionality of a full-fledged text editor. They just need some HTML here and there and they need it fast.
Writedown features live Markdown editing with a full HTML preview, as well as a distraction free editing environment.
Type in Markdown mode and view the finished HTML in preview mode.
Writedown also works in Full Screen mode. It handles Versions and Autosave. Fonts can be changed, and writers can choose between a light and dark theme in distraction free mode.
There’s also a built-in word counter. Writedown handles basic lists with auto-indent, and files can be exported to HTML.
Although Writedown is a text editor, it’s really more of a blogger’s tool than a website developers tool. It makes it rather simple to create the HTML needed within a blog page, without having to learn HTML.
