Ulysses App

I may be the only person using Ulysses (would love to hear from you if you are too) it’s a great writing tool. Here’s my thought on that app. Currently Ulysses gives you the options “Draft,” “Published,” and “Scheduled.” I think it would be amazingly cool if M.b worked with Ulysses to add an “Edit” option - which would obviously do a “replace” function. I think MarsEdit will replace because it uses an internal id on each post but Ulysses does not appear to do that. I realize this probably isn’t a huge priority and would require working with the app to implement, but it would be a stand-out feature, at least for me. I’m enjoying M.b. I think it is a great service.

@bradjadkins I’m using Ulysses and I only discovered M.b when it was added to the latest update. I’ve posted to M.b using Ulysses a couple of times and agree that an edit function would be a great addition.

I also settled on Ulysses earlier this year when I decided to jump back into writing. Definitely put this in the would-be-wicked-cool-but-bigger-fish-to-fry category.

To be clear, this will not require Manton to work with Ulysses— the Micro.blog API already supports this. Ulysses would have to decide to do it, so I recommend you provide that feedback to Ulysses.


Personally I did during the beta testing phase of version 22.

I was just thinking this earlier. I haven’t fully explored the Micropub API; but, so long as posts can be uniquely identified (and the desired post attributes writable) I would be surprised if it amounted to more than fetching posts and pushing the modifications. Could probably accomplish this with an iOS Shortcut if they weren’t still such a pain in the arse to compose.

I use Ulysses daily as well, though I’m brand new to micro.blog. I like the idea, I use a couple social medias now but I’m not happy with them from a public posting point of view.

From just a quick look over the interface, I agree an edit/replace option would be a big feature.

Been using Ulysses for a few years now and discovered micro.blog through this feature. Awesome partnership, glad I know about M.b this way!


Just wanted to comment so I could be counted as another Ulysses user. It really is a great piece of software and I think the subscription model is working out great for users in terms of promoting a “sane” feature release schedule. I agree that “edit”/“replace” functionality is an important next step for M.b support, I will make a point to request that of the good coders from Austria…

This feature is being developed by the folks at Ulysses. Here is the source, though the tweet with the request has since been deleted.

Ulysses is an incredible app. I’ve tried other writing apps, especially for novels, and always end up going back to Ulysses again. I also love that Ulysses enabled me to find this wonderful app.

I discovered micro.blog through Ulysses. Bravo! Thanks!
