A script to autopost a text file via MarsEdit?
  • I've been doing a fair amount of writing on my iPad, mostly in PlainText. I'm trying to create a workflow that will grab a text file (written in PlainText) from a DropBox folder and automatically post it to my blog. (I would use either Hazel or a Folder Action for this.)

    Is anyone familiar with an existing script I might be able to use or adapt to this?
  • Hi John - I do think you could probably arrange this with MarsEdit. There are some gotchas to scripting the post because changing the title makes it hard to reference again. Until I fix this, I suggest starting with this example for the MarsEdit publishing part of the solution:
