I’m a journalist, and I write in Markdown. Before I upload articles to our CMS, I run a series of search-and-replaces on the text, using TextSoap. The sequence is as follows:
Convert Markdown to HTML
Replace "> with " target=“new”>
append a standard tagline to the end of the article.
I have been unable to find anything on iOS that will let me run multiple search-and-replaces and text transformations in sequence. Sure any text editor will let me run them one at a time, but I haven’t found anything that will let me run them one after the other, with a single command.
Any suggestions? Is this something Editorial can do?
CleanText looks like a nice app and it may prove useful for other things. Text Case also looks useful — and fun.
On the Mac, MultiMarkdown Composer has quietly — and slowly — evolved into quite a useful tool for no-nonsense writing. I rolll my eyes hard at applications that brag about their beautiful design and distraction free environment blah blah blah. MMC is designed for work.
