One of my goals in 2016 was to write more on here. That hasn't worked out, mainly because the CMS which I had custom-built many years ago has been showing its age. I did briefly contemplate addressing its shortcomings, but quickly came to my senses and decided to look elsewhere for third-party alternatives. The one I went with significantly reduces the friction in publishing because every blog post is just a Markdown file. Great, but where do I write? Although there's a undoubted charm to Notepad's simplicity, it still thinks it's 1995. And as far as Markdown editors go, MarkdownPad seemed like the best choice, but I didn't consider writing to be its primary use-case. So I decided to build something myself. This was supposed to be a side-project to be completed over a weekend in between Appy Weather 2 work. A text editor - how much work could that be? Can't be much? Wrong, well, if you're me at least and don't settle for "good enough". It's been over 3 months now, and it's still not quite ready. But it's getting there. If you're interested in getting early access, please check out appytext.net.
