Sorry if this has been discussed - I tried searching for it and couldn’t find anything relevant.
I’m really enjoying using micro.blog to host my website/blog - but it’d be nice if there was a way to preview content in my actual theme before publishing a blog post. Is there something i’m missing, or is this not a possibility?
Ah look at that. In the preview menu it doesn’t show there could be custom templates until you add one.
That said, while that might get you things like text color and size to some degree, and you could probably make the template match, MarsEdit does some awesome stuff, like recognize HTML to grab your headers etc automagically.
I tried to find where MarsEdit saves the preview template (found the default, but not the one it downloaded for me) to see if it’d be possible to grab that to help someone out using iAWriter on mobile, but alas, I couldn’t find it.
I also think Marked.app is great for this (and use it with Markdown in general)
MarsEdit stores the preview template in a property list file for the blog along with many other settings/data. The easiest way to find it is to hold the option key while selecting Help → Open MarsEdit Data Folder. Within that folder you’ll find a DataSources.plist file that contains all the blog configurations. Search for “previewTemplate” to find the storage for the template.
