This is a post from the new WordPress.com desktop application for the Mac. This is a very nice addition to WordPress. I can manage my WordPress installation as well as post to my blog.
Here is a picture I took yesterday looking out the back of my house.
Drag and drop media management is very nice.
This application is actually a web app running in a desktop shell that talks to a node app. This is very interesting from my perspective as a web developer. Applications like this could extend web applications that a user needs to spend a significant amount of time in and allow developers to reuse code rather than developing a whole new UI.
I wasn’t the biggest WordPress fan but I have spent some time lately getting it do what I want. I wanted a digital content hub, one that would pull in content from Twitter and push content I choose to Facebook. WordPress has been doing this for me nicely so far.
