Install Workflow...

This workflow contains at least one Python script. Only use it if you trust the person who shared this with you, and if you know exactly what it does.

I understand, install the workflow!

This is a workflow for Editorial, a Markdown and plain text editor for iOS. To download it, you need to view this page on a device that has the app installed.

Description: Uses the new `linguistictagger` module to highlight lexical classes (nouns, verbs, adjectives...) in the current document — very similar to the syntax highlighting in Agile Tortoise's Phraseology app (but not editable).

Does anybody know a way to do this on the Mac? Either something that utilizes this linguistic tagging in Python, or an app -- other than Writer Pro (or the excellent Marked 2's somewhat relatively limited similar feature)? I'd really like some good looking way to inspect parts of speech in text/markdown writing along the lines of this, phraseology, or Writer Pro, but on the Mac and without spending all that money on Writer Pro just for a single feature. I don't even know if this could be ported to Mac or what. Anybody sees this and has some ideas please do enlighten me. Thanks.
