Perfect structure for me as a RPG-campaign style plotter and storyteller. Collects everything in one place and really support iterative breakdown workflow. Yet, no workflow is enforced, it's just there, an obvious place for almost everything related to working with the story.

Active development, all data stored in plain text so I can work from mobile as well as on the desktop, lots of essential features for outlining, writing, and publishing.

And in markdown! Rich text is completely unnecessary in the writing phase, and Manuskript doesn't bother with it, which is awesome.

It's true to the Unix philosophy, has an intuitive UI, and is quite usable.

I just started writing a novel and came across Manuskript. It is a SOLID project (version 0.5.0). I am very impressed by the following features:

  1. Very responsive, intuitive UI
  2. Saves all data in plain text. I use Vim for my substantial writing / programming. I love how this application lets me do the bulk of my writing externally while displaying my data in nice interface when I want to look at it all in one place
  3. Implements a snowflake-method client very well. I actually learned about the snowflake method thanks to Manuskript

Excellent, excellent piece of software. Puts others to shame, especially for those of us looking for a great outlining tool for a monumental text.
