Scrivener is, will always be, my go-to program for writing, on Mac, Win, iOS, however, for one particular task it is a little more work to achieve the desired result (unless I’m missing something).
The task I refer to is posting direct to a Wordpress blog site.
I recently saw an article on posting direct to a WordPress site using Ulysses. A quick look at a blog post on the Ulysses site and it was a ‘wow it would be great if Scrivener did this’ moment. Once the site details are set in Ulysses it’s a couple of clicks to export, either as direct post or draft.
I realise Scrivener and Ulysses are different approaches to writing, and it’s impossible to stuff everything including the kitchen sink into a program, but if it were a possibility, I for one would love it.
Wordpress (at least the site I use) has a “paste from Word” command. I’ve found the easiest approach is to Compile to Word, and then paste from there. For a blog post, you can usually ignore most of the Compile settings by using the Original preset.
If one ran a custom command line on compile (folder action for example?), then one could just compile to a particular folder and the script would trigger. Pandoc explicitly supports the markdown variant wordpress uses apparently, so the full workflow should be possible for a motivated geek…
Point of information:
Be careful with whom you’re doing business. The Windows version is not associated with the developers of Ulysses in any way; I asked Ulysses in a recent email. It appears that it’s thievery.
