Overview

Mr. Poole is an Alfred workflow for Jekyll sites. He is Dr. Jekyll's butler and tries to take the drudgery out of running a static site. Mr. Poole will assist you by...

  • creating, opening and publishing drafts of regular as well as link and video posts
  • opening existing posts for editing
  • opening existing pages for editing
  • starting a local server with the site including drafts
  • opening the site folder in Sublime Text for development plus the above
  • deploying the site to your server with rsync
  • tweeting about (new) posts

I've just tweaked the workflow a little bit, updated the documentation and made my post more readable with Vítor's MarkdownBulletin workflow - it's incredible that when I googled the infinite interwebzzz for a Markdown to BBCode converter I found the solution right here in this forum. ;)
