Quick Tip: TextExpander/Octopress New Code BlockMon Feb 25 2013 | Mark Struzinski
Just a quick tip. This blog is built using Octopress. Octopress uses Jekkyl to create a static HTML site using markdown files for the content. I’ve been slowly building up some markdown specific TextExpander snippets and Keyboard Maestro macros to make things easier.
