FOSS Under OS X – MacDown

Screen Shot 2018-06-21 at 2.36.12 PM

FOSS – I am a proponent of FOSS (Free Open Source Software). For one thing, FOSS has a great price – FREE. For another, it is software that is, for the most part, developed by the users. I had come across MacDown a few weeks ago and have been trying it out.

So what is MacDown? MacDown is a simple-to-use editor that allows the user to create documents using Markdown. And what is Markdown? As stated in the MacDown Help file:

Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax created by John Gruber, aiming to provide an easy-to-read and feasible markup. The original Markdown syntax specification can be found here.

MacDown is created as a simple-to-use editor for Markdown documents. It renders your Markdown contents in real-time into HTML, and displays them in a preview panel.

As you can see from the image above captured from the MacDown Help file, MacDown presents the user with two panes in the document window. The left pane is where the user enters text while the right pane displays the formatted document.

Most, but not all, features of HTML are supported. The features that MacDown claims are:

  • Highly customizable Markdown rendering.
  • Syntax highlighting in fenced code blocks.
  • Sophisticated auto-completion.
  • Visit the MacDown Features page for more details.

So why would you want to use MacDown? That is a good question. Most of the time I make notes in Apple Notes. Most of what you can do in MacDown can be done in Notes too, though once you learn Markdown, creating a formatted document is more efficient in MacDown (you can do everything from the keyboard without using your mouse and the application Menu bar).

Once you have created your document, you can export it as either an HTML file or as a PDF. Since you are seeing the formatted document as it is being rendered, any errors can be immediately corrected.

This is not an App I expect to use every day, but it is one I am adding to my ‘macOS Toolbox’ list. I think that I will discover more uses of MacDown the longer that I use it. I certainly recommend that you give it a try.

Pros

  • Software is Free
  • The application is Open Source and under current development
  • Markdown syntax is easier to learn than HTML
  • Efficient creation of formatted documents
  • Documents can be exported as either an HTML or PDF
  • Formatted document created in real-time
  • Included Help file with Markdown syntax examples

 

Cons

  • No commercial support available
  • Not every feature of HTML is supported
  • You do have to learn Markdown syntax
  • An Internet connection is required while using MacDown

macOS New App Release – DEVON Freeware Utilities

Product AnnouncementsDEVONtechnologies of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho  has updated a number of freeware utilities with enhancements and compatibility fixes. The menubar shortcut app XMenu receives Retina icons, the Services menu extension CalcService accepts numbers with separators, and WordService sorts rich text and correctly sorts numbers. All updates free and recommended to all users.

Besides its commercial applications DEVONthink, DEVONagent, and DEVONsphere, DEVONtechnologies publishes a range of freeware utilities. They extend the Services menu, make apps and documents accessible from the menu bar, find files, generate thumbnails from images, or place pictures or web cams on the user’s desktop.

  • CalcService: Calculates mathematical terms from selected text
  • WordService: Manipulates selected text
  • EasyFind: Finds files with precision and without relying on Spotlight
  • PhotoStickies: Puts photos or web cams on the desktop like sticky notes
  • ThumbsUp: Creates thumbnails from images, PDFs, and videos
  • XMenu: Adds menus to the menu bar for accessing apps, documents, and more

All DEVONtechnologies freeware utilities are free also for commercial use.

What’s new in CalcService, WordService, and XMenu: CalcService 3.5 supports also numbers with separators, e.g., copied from an invoice or account statement. WordService 2.8.2 sorts rich text and correctly sorts numbers. The “Initial caps of sentences” command now capitalizes the first word after paragraph separators or multiple line feeds too. Both Services menu extensions are optimized for and require macOS Yosemite and later.

“Services are still one of the most underrated features of the Mac. They can offer convenient functionality anywhere for selected text or files without keeping a menubar applet running at all times. Our CalcService and WordService safely enhance all applications that work with text, from simple TextEdit to word processors or our own DEVONthink, with powerful commands for everyday use” comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.

XMenu 1.9.9 brings Retina-optimized icons for its menus and uses custom icons of volume aliases. In addition it resolves aliases faster and supports App Transport Security on OS X El Capitan and later. If required, it moves itself into the Applications folder.
