Today, I’m pleased to let everyone know what I’ve been working on in my spare time, and release the first public version of it: StoryTracker, a tool for (geeky) writers!
StoryTracker is a project I’ve been working on for a while, but only in the last month (probably due to being between jobs) have I been able to give it the attention it deserves.
NOTE: This is an open-source (Apache 2.0 license) free-to-use application, with no express or implied warranty, and it’s aimed squarely at so-geeky-they’re-probably-using-Linux writers. Once it is set up and running, my goal is that it be easy to use, but getting it set up requires technical know-how and the willingness to run a database service on your computer.
Also, please note that I’m not a graphic designer. I gave it no visual bells or whistles because I can’t draw, animate, or otherwise make things pretty. I do hope to make things prettier later, but the most important thing for me was to get the absolutely essential basics done, and that’s what this release it: The basics. I have plans for more in the very near future, but it’s time to let this bird leave the nest for a while.
