This app is probably the second thing I use whilst developing websites, having designed the layout with Photoshop, Gradient (and inspiration from PlayByPlay) I’ll start filling in the content. Mou itself for me is the best way to write MarkDown on the Mac.
Mou works by allowing the use of MarkDown in the editor, in then converts this to HTML that can be copied and pasted into your HTML code. Not sold? Well let me try again, by typing
# Name of Header
I can cut down time by having it output
<h1> Name of Header </h1>
Sure this doesn’t seem like much now, but imagine you’re writing entire pages worth of text and having to apply specific attributes to each part. Useful, hm?
At the minute the App is in heavy development, though as of yet I’ve not found anything that is wrong with it! I’d certainly recommend it, in fact it’s a tool I’ve used many times before when demonstrating how a website can be refactored. As an app, it’s plain, simple and allows for Syntax highlighting. It has full-screen mode, two displays and it also allows for different styles for the writing panes.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
