One of the aspects of MarsEdit which appeals to me is the way it hides much of its power and versatility beneath a relatively simple interface. Shimone Samuel recognized the power of MarsEdit’s scriptability and powerful markup macros, and came up with a pretty cool solution for automating footnote generation.
Nice work, Shimone! It’s great to see examples like this. As I said, I think it’s nice the way MarsEdit hides much of its functionality away, but the flip side of that is of course that it can be difficult to realize its full potential. Blog posts such as Shimone’s do a good job of showing off its hidden strengths.
