* Auto-saving single draft
* Choose between three fonts (serif, sans-serif, monospace)
* Dark mode (on platforms that support it)
* Save draft as another file
* Publish anonymously to :writeas: Write.as and manage posts via the CLI

Special thanks to goes to @alcinnz for the great work he did on this app. I was lucky enough to find him here in the fediverse a few months ago, and without his expertise, it probably wouldn't have existed for a long time.

If you want to contribute to the GTK project, there's a GitHub mirror to easily submit issues and pull requests: github.com/writeas/writeas-gtk

And, of course, the CLI that backs it: github.com/writeas/writeas-cli

For :archlinux: users, the GTK app and command-line interface are also in the AUR:

If you'd like to help get it into the community repo, please give it a vote there.

And if you can help us get it packaged for other distros besides and Arch, that would be very much appreciated!
