Quicksilver Plugin?
  • Have you considered making a Quicksilver Plugin for MarsEdit? I currently have a trigger for the Post with MarsEdit bookmarklet but I'd like a little more.

    How about a New Post action for MarsEdit (that is, only available when MarsEdit is in the first pane)?

    I'd like to be able to right-arrow into MarsEdit to see the weblog list (including drafts) and then right arrow again to see a list of posts.

    For a given post I'd like actions to edit the article or open it in the browser or copy the URL to the clipboard. This last one would be useful for referencing an older post when writing a new one.
  • I think this is a good idea. I just don't have any experience yet in writing a QuickSilver plugin, and since I'm not a regular QS user, I don't have the best sense for how it should behave. Thanks for your suggestions. When I get a chance I'm going to play with trying to put something together. There is also demand for QS plugins for some of my other apps, so I think it will be a good learning experience.
  • I'm fairly skilled at QS (I've been writing a manual for it) and I think my suggestions are inline with how it should behave. I haven't written a plugin myself, but the following are two helpful links. Also the #quicksilver irc channel on freenode.net while quiet, has some folks who could help.

  • Great - well, I am not going to promise anything too quickly, but when I get to it, I know who I'll want to test it out :)
