We're working to build a suite of tiny, focused tools that all work together, and share the same simplicity and privacy-awareness of Write.as. This little platform is just the start.

Now you can along with each of them right here in the fediverse:

@readwriteas - stories from Write.as
@snap_as - photo and album hosting
@htmlhouse - HTML hosting

Future:
@draft_as - collaboration on text
@jot_as - private, encrypted notes

I've been wanting to theme my blog, and css.horse/ is going to make that much easier. 😍

If your Snap.as photos weren’t showing up with the correct rotation, that issue is now fixed! Any new uploads should work great 🖼️ We wrote a bit more about this on the forum.

Developing themes for @write_as / @writefreely has always been a bit of a pain. I've gotten used to working around the limitations, but I always wanted to make the process accessible to more people.

Today I'm finally releasing 🐴 CSShorse, a tool for editing themes and previewing your work in real-time, with your real blog. (Based on @htmlhouse.)
