Red Herring reviewed on 08 Apr 2013
This is an excellent piece of software and I use it to edit webpages and web lecture notes for classes I teach. For those who uses heavily mathematical formulae (using MathJax) I suggest to disable mathematics in Mou and instead load MathJax with their own custom options directly.

I believe that synchronization (in the same manner as modern TeX front views implement; but I am not aware of any markdown editors with this capacity) would transform Mou from "excellent" into "great" application: command-clicking on some place in the text window would automatically bring into focus the corresponding place in the preview window and command-clicking on some place in the preview window would automatically bring into focus the corresponding place in the text window.

I never use precompiled binaries but try to compile them by myself which allows to add different tools. Lately I was able to compile IM 6.5.5-7 with jbig2 and autotrace

One definitely should not compare CLI of ImageMagick with click interface of Desktop publishing tools as they are different programs used for different tasks. It does not mean that Photoshop cannot do some batch jobs or one can write a GUI using (some) of the features of IM.

There are tasks which simply can have no reasonable GUI except drag-and-drop. Example? autotrace or potrace converting bw bitmap graphics to a vector one. Another? pdfcrop (not part of IM but TeX distribution) which by default crops according to bounding box. There is no controversy CLI vs GUI and depending on the task I use one or another
