BlogAssist

Version: 2.4 || Release Date: 2012-09-06 || License: Shareware ($9.95) Developer: Dejal | App Owner: dejal

BlogAssist is a handy tool to help weblog and website editing by making HTML markup easier.

There are three easy ways to use it: you can use whichever one you prefer, or all three as desired.

1. The System Menu: BlogAssist adds a small menu to the right-hand side of the menubar in all applications. You can simply select and copy some text into the clipboard, choose a suitable operation from the menu, then paste the result in the desired location. The text will have been transformed like magic.

2. The Services Menu: BlogAssist also appears in the Services menu, available in most applications. This is really easy to use: just select some text and hit Cmd-< to display a small panel. Simply choose an operation and click OK to drop the marked up text back into your document.

3. The Floating Window: This is similar to the Services menu panel, but can be left open as long as you like. It floats above all other windows, alwaywa available. With the floating window displayed, you simply drag text to one or both of its Value fields, choose an operation from the included pop-up menu, then drag the formatted HTML from the Result field.

You're much better using Typinator with its html shortcuts. Don't have to take your hands off the keyboard to create sophisticated html tags in pairs.

Can't see the point of this without hotkeys. All of this and more can be achieved with TextMate.

It's disappointing to find that the newest version is shareware. Now I won't upgrade anytime soon. It's always suited my needs just fine (except for lack of a hotkeys setting).

Used to be freeware. Dejal produce great software, but I hate it so much when a freeware suddenly turn out as Sharware...

Blogassist is the perfect solution for posting blogs to services with safari, when the WYSIWYG toolbars don't show up.

Makes writing blog posts in html much faster.
