Ever since the death of Windows Live Writer, I’ve never managed to find a nice blog editor that I really liked and also worked fine. I had a nice Vim plugin that posted to wordpress for a while, but that seems to have stopped working. The WordPress interface itself is mostly fine, but still a fair bit ‘meh’.

Platen is a markdown based editor that’s a Chrome Web Store app that looks cool so far. Let me see if it actually works.
