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

Yesterday, v1.0 of the WriteFreely app for iOS launched on the App Store — I wrote a bit about my experience building it in #SwiftUI here, as well as what's next:

Of course, the iOS app also works with our hosted service, Write.as. So if you've been waiting to log in to your account on iOS, now you can at last!

Here's how to do that: howto.write.as/using-the-write

(We unfortunately don't have a way to migrate anonymous posts from our Write.as v1.0 iOS app today, but we hope to in the future!)

Our new iOS app works with all self-hosted WriteFreely instances back to v0.1, so all you need to do is install the app and log in to your instance to get started!

After a long summer of work, our iOS app is dropping today! Keep an eye out for our announcement soon.

This week we announced that @snap_as is getting ready to leave its "alpha" status: we.snap.as/leaving-alpha

Initially we thought this would involve some downtime for everyone. But instead of that, we'll probably let everyone simply migrate whenever they're ready.

That means everything on the "old" Snap.as will remain live, but to upload or modify anything, you'll first need to kick off a migration for your account.

Because of many things coming together / happening at the same time for us right now, we're probably going to have a couple major platform launches all in the next few months.

The 2020 ActivityPub virtual conference begins tomorrow (2nd October 2020), featuring pre-recorded talks, live Q&As and more, all about the technical standard that powers the Fedverse.

I've been thinking about moving some development resources to their own dedicated space, instead of keeping everything so closely tied to Write.as.

Any thoughts? Interested in helping with this? discuss.write.as/t/separating-

A regular reminder to our #dev friends to keep #privacy for your users on your issues list.

- Avoid using third party systems to host fonts, scripts, etc.
- Try Google analytics alternatives like @plausible or @Matomo
- Capture as little personally identifiable information as possible (do you really need their full name, phone number, etc?)
- Purge your PII regularly
- Share info with fewer systems and notify your users

Place their privacy at least equal to your needs.
