MarsEdit was originally developed as a component of NetNewsWire, a popular news aggregator for Mac OS X, which, in the 1.0 series, included a simple weblog editor. During the development of NetNewsWire 2.0, the developers decided to move the blog editor functionality to a new application. The resulting application, MarsEdit 1.0, was released on November 28, 2005.

With the acquisition of NetNewsWire by NewsGator in 2005, the future of MarsEdit was uncertain for a time. On November 4 of 2005, it was revealed that MarsEdit development would be continued by Gus Mueller of Flying Meat.[1]

In February 2007, MarsEdit was purchased by Red Sweater Software, and is now being developed by Red Sweater's owner, Daniel Jalkut.

MarsEdit 2.0 was released in September 2007, with a refined user interface and several new features including Flickr integration.[2]

MarsEdit 2.3 was released in March 2009 and includes support for the popular Tumblr blog service.
