I've been on a long journey in search of the perfect writing app: something simple enough to quickly jot down notes, but equipped with the features I appreciate as a developer, such as markdown, code block syntax highlighting, and a myriad of keyboard shortcuts. Many apps came close, but each left me wanting. After years of searching, I decided to roll up my sleeves and build something myself.
To developers that write: I'd love your help making Typist the best writing app for engineers. Feedback and feature requests are very welcome.
All of Typist’s developer-friendly features are free to use on a single device.
By upgrading to Typist Premium for $19.99/year you can unlock the ability to sync your notes across an unlimited number of devices.
Many, many things. The roadmap for Typist can be found here. If a particular feature stands out to you, be sure to upvote it.
I'm a full-stack engineer with 10 years of experience working at every kind of development gig you could imagine — freelancing, digital agencies, mega-corporations and startups. Today I work as a UX and product engineer at Render. Also, I love to write.
