I am very impressed with MWeb. It's an excellent Markdown editor, among other things. It publishes directly to numerous platforms, including Wordpress and Medium. What's more, it allows the user to specify the xmlrpc URL, which is important if your WP site is hosted on a server that has locked down xmlrpc access for security reasons. The way around that is to call that file something else, but then one can only connect to it via apps that let you specify the name of the xmlrpc file.
I think for the price, MWeb is excellent value. Keep up the great work!

Trying version 3.2.0, and still missing the second sidebar that was in version 2. Though version 3.2.0 claims fixing the bug, it's still impossible to drag and drop files and folders. Need it to be really fixed, the app became unusefull without it.

Maybe the end of my uses of MWeb, though I was a proselyte and a tesflight tester on iOS. I switch to a new macbook because of the crash of the old one, I can't recover my activation number, the app will block in 3 days. Meanwhile , Zettlr , Notable ((Mac only), FSnotes and Joplin (macOS and iOs), are free and open source… and are all functional, reinstalable with Homebrew. I think it means bye bye, MWeb.

3 months later… I made a long review of this app as I was adopting it to replace two or three apps I used before (for the record: Ulysses, MacJournal and DayOne!). I used it everyday since, and just notice one big bug that you must be aware of. The bug occured when the iOS app sync a Dropbox folder: beware of naming the folder with no diacritic (what a french, spanish, and every other user of diacritics could do): your files will simply vanished without no way to recover (and believe me, I tried and still trying). Made a lot of test to make it sure, and I can now reproduce the bug everytime. The Mac App seems to be free of this bug, as it can't synchronised (the synchronisation is made by using a Dropbox or an iCloud folder). As this bug could ruin your day, it have to be known - and better, fixed, I told the dev on Twitter and wait for an answer. The last feature I try is to send to an auto-host wordpress blog, and it really works, including images embedded in the post. Simply have to things in mind: - don't publish Markdown; though it works, it display markdown in the editor, even in Visual mode; if you send without markdown (I think you send html then), the editor only show the rich text result ; - publish as draft : it's obvious, but it had to be said. As a draft, you can make some last enhancement, for example move and resize your images in the post. So you can draft your entire WP blog in MWeb, in a simple way. More, you can update your post from mWeb and publish it again : it overwrite the post on WP. MWeb can't do everything : you can't manipulate your categories, as authorized with some apps, or publish slideshows - but no app, as I know, can publish slideshows to a WP post). It's a great way to save you blog posts.

I was primarily interested in using this to post to a couple of blogs. I wrote a long blog post and then tried sending it and it only sent the last paragraph. All other text was lost. I tried removing a few tags and it did not matter. As my primary reason for using it would be posting to blogs, I've uninstalled it. Other than that, though, it seems like a nice enough editor. It just didn't work for my purposes.

Testing a lot of markdown editors to replace both of my favorite that turned bad with their rental business model, I would end to use Mweb, which offers a lot of features to work with. 1. A fully multimarkdown compliance, that make it really useful to write from blog post to social science papers ; 2. A complete range of display modes (3, 2 or 1 column, both markdown and preview mode, a folder manager and a file manager in 2 left sidebars, all that can be visible or not at your choice ; 3. A library mode, to store your posts in a database, and allows you to build a blog or website - not that easy to configure, though ; 4. A external mode (internal and external open different windows), that allows you to open any folder on your mac and manage the text files inside - combine with dropbox, you can share this folder with many apps on your mac and your other portables devices. Plus, Mweb can deal wtih subfolders, that helps to keep your files in order; 5. An integration of a range of publishing services, like Wordpress.org and .com, Blogger, Tumblr, Medium and metaweblog API, plus some photos sharing service like Google Photo and Imgur. I first use the lite version of Mweb, asking myself what it misses, but when I bought the pro version, I really appreciate the enancement. A bar is added to the main window, making it handy to switch between display mode, add main markdown features (including a neat and smart table manager !!) Of course, you can export to HTML, PDF, RTF and DOCX, and send directly to Mail, Twitter, Linkedin, Pocket, Notes, Messages and DayOne. Impressive, isn't it? In brief: I came to try nvALT to integer a markdown notebook, and to find some apps to replace Ulysses (really great but SoulMen became just to greedy), and DayOne (that I love, but not be sure of its future, as I only need DayOne Classic). Mweb made more: I begin to use it to replace both, but also nvALT and my main notetaker for years, MacJournal. It will be my notetaker, my blogger, my article writer on mac, and guess what: I can share all my files with the iOS app (universal), using the external mode on a dropbox folder. This is simply the best macOS markdown editor I tried (and believe me, I tried a lot of them), but it's more than a simple markdown edifor. It's a complete writer suite with open markdown files. Though I love it, it misses some cosmetic features, including an easy way to change and share themes (as Ulysse has), and a better images integration (a dedicated folder where do search when it's time to upload posts with images). I don't really understand why this app is not on the top five of any markdown lovers.

Impressed. Nor been a user of markdown previously but this has got me composing some of my more complex emails in this first. No worries about fighting the quirks of WYSIWYG editing windows. The auto-previews are great. Wish it had more documentation on the HTML coding format conventions, which allow you to set font attributes.

I am actually surprised it hasn't had more interest on MacUpdate. One review in 2015, and another in 2016. I wrote my review (which I rarely do on MacUpdate) because I couldn’t bare to see such an excellent app getting so little attention. It has a 14 day trial, so I recommend anyone looking for a Markdown Editor, and/or something to publish to Wordpress (etc), at a better price than Blogo ($10/month or $70/year) and Marsedit ($40), give this a whirl.

I come to love it too, after testing à lot of markdown editors (see my review); I think it's just lost in the ocean of markdown editors, desperatly waiting for desperately waiting to be spotlighted by the lighthouse of demanding and satisfied users.
