First Look at Editorial for iPad
I've posted a few screenshots of a new app I've been working on for quite some time:
It's basically a Markdown editor with an embedded Python interpreter and an Automator-like workflow system, and I think it'll be especially interesting for those who use Pythonista for productivity.
Don't worry, I'm still fully committed to Pythonista, and the next update (1.4) is coming really soon.

Pretty excited for this. I noticed some of the workflows on your github account the other day and got curious. It all makes sense now.
Oh, looks like I've been a bit careless there, those were meant to be private. ;)
Anyway, in the final app, workflow sharing won't rely on gists, it'll look more like this: http://editorial-app.appspot.com/workflow/35001/2T2dD8tz5_0

Well, that looks very interessing... no more begging for a special extension - I can write it myself.
Btw: has it UTF8 and Dropboxsyncing?
@hwm Yes, it syncs plain text files via Dropbox (code can't be synced because of Apple's guidelines, but it would be possible to do this with custom workflows). And of course it supports utf-8.

Very compromising. Will the app also be available for an iPhone?
@dahan It'll be iPad-only at first. I plan to make an iPhone version later, but I don't have a timeframe for that yet.

Okay, iPhone is planned. Other than that, I'm intrigued.
The app is coming out tomorrow. All the details here: <a href="http://editorial-app.com">editorial-app.com</a>

Congratulations on this! It looks super cool...
Can we get Dark Theme on Pythonista too for those late night hackathons?
@ccc Thanks! An app-wide dark theme is definitely something I want to do in Pythonista too, but it'll still take some time. It's likely going to be part of the big iOS 7 UI redesign...

@omz : nice app! A couple of remarks:
Editing a workflow is a bit cumbersome. The ability to copy and paste blocks would definitely help! (Although one can misuse the custom presets for that)
In the workflow, 'if' blocks can not be nested.
The 'editorial://' custom URL scheme is not documented. (Unless you count the global search example). Is there a way specify in this scheme to open a document in the preview mode? (Something like 'editorial://open/file?root=somewhere&mode=preview' ?)
editor.to_relative_pathfunction is not documented.
@Hvmhvm If (and repeat) blocks can be nested (though I admit that it's not entirely obvious). You have to collapse one of the blocks (tap Hide Actions), then you can drag the entire thing into another block.
There is a documentation page about the
editorial://URL scheme here: http://omz-software.com/editorial/docs/ios/editorial_urlscheme.html (also part of the in-app docs).
