What is argunet editor?
Argunet Editor is a free argument map editor for analyzing and visualizing complex debates. You can use it offline and save your debates on your hard-disk. Or you can use it as a client-server application. This allows you to share your debates and collaborate with others on the Argunet server.
Fast sketching mode: You can use Argunet to quickly outline the macro-structure of a debate. Sketching debates is quite intuitive and you will get the hang of it without much effort.
Logical precision: In contrast to other argument mapping software, Argunet doesn’t stop there. It gives you the tools to go into every logical detail of an argument. This is where Argunet really shines: Every argument can be reconstructed as a logically valid premise-conclusion structure. Relations between arguments can be systematically traced back to the logical relations between the sentences used as their premises and conclusions.
Support for different methods: Argunet doesn’t impose any special kind of logic or method on you. You can choose your own inference rules or argument schemes. And because it combines argument maps with the traditional “standard form” of single arguments as lists of premises and conclusions, Argunet is open to very different methods of argument reconstruction, ranging from simple mind-mapping to formal logic.
If this all sounds like gibberish to you, don’t worry. We have written some easy tutorials to get you going with your first argument map. This will only take a few minutes.

This app has been discontinued on October 26th, 2018. Please see the blog entry at the top of the page at http://www.argunet.org/. It says "As a result of this decision, we currently do not plan to release any new Argunet versions." The successor is argdown.org, a markdown-like syntax to auto-generate argument maps.
