LightPaper, a free OSX Markdown Editor

LightPaper is a simple, beautiful, powerful and free text editor for OSX. I’ve just test it a few minutes but I already love it. It works especially well if you’re writing in Markdown.

LightPaper

Under the cover, blog.manbolo.com is a static generated blog. It uses a small PHP script to generate the entire blog each time we add new articles (the generation of the entire blog lasts less than 1s). Each article is a Markdown file (you can see the original Markdown file by appending .md at the end of an article url like this http://blog.manbolo.com/2013/12/04/uialertview-bug-on-ios-7.md).

Writing a new article with LightPaper is a real pleasure. The killer features for me:

I used to write with the venerable BBEdit but LightPaper has become my favorite tool for Markdown writing. Well down Clockwork Engine!

LightPaper is free but I wouldn’t mind to pay a few bucks for such a great editor. There is also an Android version, can’t wait for the iOS one.
