dterm- the popup cli

Yesterday I posted my new workflow for writing with markdown for this blog. Today I’m adding a very nifty tool to that workflow, which enables me to post a finished draft directly from any text editor. Dterm is a cool, and free, OSX utility that allows you to call up a command line on any window and execute a command on either the foremost document, or selected documents if it’s a window with a document list.

Enter your command in the dialogue box, and stdout appears below.

To post this piece, I pull up dterm and enter post dterm_popup_cli.txt.
