Launched my weekend project: Aurelius
Published by: _ilango, Founder of Aurelius
Aurelius is a beautiful, minimal writing app.
I've wanted a better place to write for a while now. Aurelius was inspired by blurt.app (which was acquired and is no longer accessible). I tried other writing apps but none I quite liked. So I decided to build my own.
Here are the features that Aurelius has right now:
✨ Focus mode 🎯 Writing Sessions w/ target word count or time ☁️ Save your work to the cloud 🔗 Share a private link to your posts ⚡️ Writing Streaks 🎵 Music player to help focus 🥅 Daily writing goal
One decision I made is to not have a landing page. Aurelius is a writing app and that's what the focus is on — writing. So the home page is the editor. No sign up required to write. It's great for one-off writing sessions. You can download your posts as markdown (more formats coming soon)
But signing up gives some nice goodies like tracking writing sessions, saving posts to the cloud, sharing private links to posts, daily writing goals etc.
