Blog post writing app demo

Hello Devs ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

I want to showcase an app I've been working on for the past few weeks. It aims to solve the pains I have when writing my blog posts:

  • I can't remember the Markdown syntax to create a link or image. Is it () or [] first? ๐Ÿค”
  • Different post destinations use different formats; HTML, Markdown, etc.
  • I don't like to use apps that don't respect my privacy, e.g., Grammarly.

I made a video tour of my work so far; bare with me please since I'm terrible at video ๐Ÿ˜…

A brief summary:

A blog post writing app to write your content once, and publish it anywhere you want.

Main features:

  • No specific syntax required, write with common text processor tools ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ.
  • Grammar and insensitive checks out of the box; nothing leaves your browser ๐Ÿ–.
  • Automatic browser storage to avoid losing your content ๐Ÿ”„.
  • Easy and intuitive image uploads ๐ŸŒ .
  • Post directly to DEV.to as a draft ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.
  • Export as Markdown or HTML โฌ‡๏ธ.

I'd like for this app to also help me follow a template or style, which I'm still trying to find. I'll see how to add that in the near future.

Any feedback is really appreciated! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ And if you want to try it out, let me know!

UPDATE: My app has a name! It's called Nina, like my dog ๐Ÿ•.

Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ’™

That's a great idea! Do you have a Github repo for that?
