I must admit a little disappointment (dare I say sadness?) when I run across an application that I enjoyed using a long time ago, but has fallen … out of favor with its developers.
It’s just in the same state it was half a decade ago, with no apparent updates or improvements. Sigh. 😦
So what, you say? So what if it’s out of development, because (insert favorite text editor here) does all that, and can fold and color-sync my code and compile from within the editor?
Well … because (insert favorite text editor here) is just that — a text editor. wordgrinder is designed as a writing tool, and as someone who doesn’t code, fold or compile (much), it’s a good tool for writing.
wordgrinder is a word processor, for processing words. Text editors are for editing text. Those two things are not always the same.
Regardless, it was worth mentioning again. In its present, “final” state it is very usable, but lacks a few finishing features. If you want to get better acquainted with it, check out the sassy how-to some dork wrote five years ago. … 😕
