Install/Keep MultiMarkdown Up-To-Date

Keeping MultiMarkdown up-to-date while working with Scrivener (Scrivener review part 1 and part 2) isn’t very hard. In this short tutorial I’m describing how easy it is to update MultiMarkdown either automatically or manually.

AppInfos:

Scrivener
Developer: Literature & Latte
Price: $44.99

Install/Update MultiMarkdown

Download MMD from the fletcherpenney website using either the manual or automatic method below.

MultiMarkdown Method 1: Manual Update

  • First go to the MMD download page
  • In the upper right corner click on ZIP or TAR
  • Decompress the downloaded file
  • Rename the newly created folder to “MultiMarkdown”
  • Move this folder to:
    ~/Library/Application Support/ for a “personal” or
    /Library/Application Support/ for a “global” installation.
  • Done

MultiMarkdown Method 1: Automatic Update

  • Again go to the MMD download page
  • On the bottom is a line beginning with a $ sign. Copy everything from git clone. (git clone git://github.com/fletcher/MultiMarkdown)
  • Open up a Terminal window
  • cd ~/Library/Application Support/
  • Paste the previously copied code: git clone git://github.com/fletcher/MultiMarkdown
  • Done

Updating MMD from now is a snap. Simply type:

  • cd ~/Library/Application Support/
  • git pull

Hints

To install git simply download git from their website and follow their instructions. It’s much easier to register, for free, at Apple’s Developer website and get git, along with some other fancy tools.
Lastly installing git through MacPorts is somewhat “automatic”.
