Just before Thanksgiving Automattic opened sourced Calypso and released the beautiful WordPress.com Mac App. The Mac app and the Calypso post editor within it are the main reasons why I’ve been able to keep up this blogging streak for as long as I have (this post will the last in the streak at day #30).
For me the editor makes all the difference in the world. If the UI is bloated or slow or contains frustrating bugs, it really distracts me from the writing experience. Fortunately the new Calypso editor is none of these things. It’s clean and fast and makes me want to write more often, not less.
We also released a Windows and Linux version this month giving you no excuse not to try one of them out for your WordPress.com or Jetpack-enabled site.
Thank you to everyone at Automattic who made them possible.
