1. Editorial Workflow: Find and Replace with Confirmation

    September 01, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    These are two new workflows from Ole Zorn based on something rather crappy that I made.

    These workflows offer an iterative find and replace (with RegEx matching) that displays a dialog for each match. Typically I don't trust a blind find and replace so these are more useful to ...

  2. Markdown to iThoughtsHD for Editorial [Link]

    September 01, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Rob Trew put together a great Editorial workflow for converting a Markdown outline into a tab-indented outline for iThoughtsHD. The really amazing bit is that it preserves Markdown headings, tabbed lists and code blocks.

  3. Editorial Workflow for Sizing and Uploading Images

    September 01, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I've posted previously about my Pythonista workflow for resizing and uploading images to my FTP host for Macdrifter.1 I translated this workflow for Editorial but decided that wasn't much of a challenge.

    I rewrote the workflow to upload to the Macdrifter host by SFTP. This had a ...

  4. Editorial Show Clipboard Workflow

    September 01, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This is a small utility workflow for Editorial to display the current clipboard contents in the console. But I don't want to just see text. If there's an image on the clipboard, I want to see that too. This workflow handles that.

    I've chosen not to clear ...

  5. Editorial Copy Document Workflow

    September 01, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Occasionally I'll start a document in the local Editorial file storage and want to upload it to Dropbox. Sometimes it's the other way around.

    This workflow copies the current local file to Dropbox or the current Dropbox document to the local storage in Editorial. It's smart enough ...

  6. Password Handling in Editorial Scripts

    August 31, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    The ability to share elaborate and fully customized workflows in Editorial is great. Embedding Python code is awesome. Accidentally sharing your user credentials that are hard coded in an Editorial workflow is neither great or awesome.

    Editorial and Pythonista provide its own version of a keychain.1 If you are ...

    August 28, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    AppStorm has a very good series about programming Python in Pythonista. If you are just getting into Editorial then you really want to catch up on this series as well as their introduction, Pythonista 101.

  9. Create New Time Stamped Files in Editorial

    August 25, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Here are a pair of Editorial macros that do something very simple that I find extremely useful. They create a new file in Dropbox titled with a time stamp.

    The first one just names the file with the current time stamp and adds a date header.

    The next one asks ...

  10. Editorial SFTP Workflows

    August 25, 2013 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I'm back from vacation and so is this site. To get the life juices flowing, I'm sharing my SFTP workflows for Editorial.1

    I use this first one to edit posts I've already uploaded to my host. It reads the first 20 text files in my Pelican ...
