@simonwoods Right! What manner of sorcery is this @manton?

@kaa @simonwoods Drafts uses exactly the same API that the other apps use. But if it seems faster, that's great too! 🙂

@manton huh. So this magic is down to Drafts itself. That's some serious coding-fu right there.

@sarcassem does it support Micro.blog?

@numericcitizen yep! Very very well. It’s for any writing you’re going to do, it’s the best place to start.

@sarcassem I'm a big user and fan of Ulysses but it doesn't support posting to Micro.blog.

@sarcassem there is no mention of Micro.blog support on the app web site.

@numericcitizen oh, no, that’s true, but it has what they call Actions which is basically what you end up choosing to do with the text you write. In the Action Directory on Drafts’s website, there are a couple of actions you can install: Post to Micro.blog and Post to Micro.blog (with title).

All you end up doing is writing your post (regardless of length), and when you’re ready, you choose the action to post to M.B. 😀

Drafts has full Markdown support, as well.

@numericcitizen Some (possibly all) of the Micro.blog Actions are listed on the TIL links page. // @sarcassem
