Trying to gauge potential interest in supporting publications on Write.as that are larger than simple personal blogs. Sound interesting, or unnecessary? We'd love your input.
@write_as Isn't that basically what a WriteFreely instance is?
@Kye Sure, in an open / less-structured way. But we're thinking something with more formal processes, e.g. "writer" and "editor" roles for controlling what's eventually published.
@write_as Sounds like a good idea. Both as a Write.as-run thing and as a feature on WriteFreely.
Lack of good, light, simple publishing tools probably holds back a lot of people from making publications.
Have you read about Smashing Magazine's transition to a Hugo-based publishing pipeline? https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2017/03/a-little-surprise-is-waiting-for-you-here/
WriteFreely could become a CMS for publications. Then people could have something like what Smashing Magazine has without needing a big magazine's development budget.
@write_as And you could helpfully provide managed publication backends as a valuable added service.
@write_as Not directly an answers to his question but the feature I'd love to see is latex support via katex or mathjax please.
Thank's for supporting the federation
@derle We do actually have MathJax support today 👍 You can enable it on your blog's Customize page
