One of the main missing feature in SmartDown 1, is the library. It was an efficient tool to work on a single document but much less to manage a project containing a set of different files.
A common place to centralized all your documents
SmartDown II is designed to manage all types of document: from a simple tweet to a complete book. It will also provide a way to work efficiently with the full lifecyle of your document.
You can add all the directories you need and organize your files as you want.
Two concepts : Locations and files
There are two important concept to fully understand the library:
- The locations: This is a set of paths. Each location can contain sub locations (sub directories). You can hence create different folders for drafts, published articles, archives,…
- The files: Each location (or sub location) can contain files. You can simply see these files by double-clicking on the location title.
A file based system
There are on the market several (good) products providing a library. Unfortunately, the majority of these systems are a black box. You need to add all your files in that library, limiting the possibilities to use third party applications.
Because we are using the regular file system, you just need to install the DropBox, OneDrive or Google Drive application to immediately benefit of the cloud storage and synch. You can hence modify your documents from your smartphone or tablet.
