You can write posts for medium.com directly from your desktop!
I know, medium.com has a great interface: So simple, so easy to use requiring only a browser and an account. It was perhaps the reason why I got to write my first posts here on Medium.com. The ease of use when that you write a post — without first having to set up a piece of software on your computer.
My favourite blog software opens a door to Medium.com
I have my own blog, like many other people who also have a Wordpress based blog, I have for years been posting all my brilliant sharings on netsi.dk blog. Since I have arrived at OS X some years ago I have found rest in Blogo app for writing blog posts to the Wordpress based blog.
The folks at Blogo Inc are implementing integration to Medium.com from their app. This post actually has been created using Blogo App!
Setting up connection to Medium.com
is very easy in Blogo
Firstly let me admit that I am a beta tester for Blogo. The version of Blogo app I am using to write this post is at the time of writing (6th of November 2015) a beta version. So this feature is not available in the official Blogo app — but I expect the Medium.com integration to land in the official version in future.
There is not many steps involved in connecting Blogo App to Medium.com. You simply choose to add a new blog account and enter “medium.com”. You are then adviced about how to get an integration token on your medium.com account.
You create the integration token by logging into medium.com and visiting settings page where you can create the token. Simply copy and paste it to Blogo app, and voila, your are ready to start posting from your desktop to Medium.com!
Could it actually be so simple?!
Actually right now I cannot answer that — this post has not yet been published, as I type these words. If you can read it on Medium.com the answer is: Yes, it is so simple! :-)
A wish to Medium.com: Please allow your API to edit posts
As I press “Publish” inside Blogo App I am presented this information:
The Medium.com API has a limited which makes it not doable for external apps like Blogo app to edit old posts.. That is too bad — hope Medium.com will update its API with edit posts feature.
