Alternatives to Scrivener for the Web with any license

  • Gingko

    Write and organize your ideas in Gingko tree documents. Whether building a business or writing a bestseller, Gingko lets your ideas flow naturally into place. ...

    • It can't show only the current document, there's no distraction free mode. It always has these columns that drill down. It doesn't have a cork-board mode or anything similar. Gingko is closer to mind mapping software, like Scrapple. Guest • Oct 2017 • 3 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • True Novelist

    Writing a novel is a large undertaking. True Novelist was created to make the process as easy as possible for authors.

    • It can divide your book into scenes, sub-scenes, and sub-subscenes.... the process goes on. It's the same as offering 'parts' 'chapters' and scenes. Guest • Aug 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This little page is pretty slick, and has what I consider to be Scrivener's main functionality and is hosted online and completely free. The only drawback is that development appears DOA and the creator of the site hasn't made a peep since early 2016. Guest • Sep 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • True Novelist works just like and looks almost identical to Scrivener (making it so there is no learning curb to using it), is purely online so there is no software to download, it is free, gives stats for chapter, entire document, and daily, allows for the setting of daily writing goals, saves automatically and also has snapshots, it has a distraction-free mode, and a night time setting dark theme. True Novelist is truly amazing. Guest • Apr 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It works so well and it is free. You have no limits and you can really do whatever you want with it. It has a dark mode, works on any device with an internet connection, unlimited scenes, and is designed to be almost the same as Scrivener.
