MarsEdit 4

Archive, write, preview, and publish your blog from a Mac

Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be online just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not ideal for creating it. If you're serious about writing for the web, you need a desktop blog editor. If you're lucky enough to have a Mac, nothing is more powerful, or more elegant than MarsEdit.

MarsEdit is a really solid offline (write before you upload) blogging tool for Mac, now with a much appreciated UI modernisation

I've used MarsEdit since version 2.x and it's always been extremely easy to use and stable.


Fast, stable, easy to use blog editing.


Can't think of any.

Users, how well does this work with WordPress? Any specific advantages as compared to the Mac app?

@philipithomas Works with WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, TypePad, Movable Type, and any blog that supports a standard MetaWeblog or AtomPub interface.

@philipithomas Hi - I'm the developer of MarsEdit. I am interested in Ghost's progress and have been keeping an eye on their API support as it evolves. Currently they don't warrant their API as being ready for the types of access that apps like MarsEdit require. You can read more about their ambitions to support apps like these in the "Private API" section of their API documentation:
