Thimblr Jump to Story

Thimblr from jphastings is a Sinatra port of Thimble, which mocks Tumblrʼs rendering engine so you can develop your themes locally in your favorite text editor instead of that tiny little text area in the Tumblr settings screen. Thimblr even supports importing your Tumblr content and storing in a local YAML file so you can see what your site will look like with your content.
