“A tree editor for writers”


Hacker News discussion: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15256215

Code: https://github.com/raymestalez/nulis

I’m not a fan of this style of editor myself, so I haven’t tried it, but I know there’s interest here.

I use GingKo everyday for writing my thesis. I found the horizontal tree and latex and the focus mode is the most useful for developing complex ideas with equations

It’s cool, but it still needs a lot of work. Also, as far as I can tell, it’s online only. I got in as a beta tester for the desktop version of Gingko and trust me, it’s REALLY good!

Hm, I wonder about the legality or morality of this sort of thing.

I does look like a rather close copying or reverse-engineering of Gingko’s essential features, which I would assume constitute Gingko’s intellectual property.

I don’t have a problem with competition, as long as it’s fair.

For that reason alone I’d stick with Gingko. But I prefer it for aesthetic reasons as well.

Just noticed I was subscribed to the pretty empty Reddit page for this app, and when I visited the Github page it showed that code hasn’t been updated in two years. A shame, since Gingko seems to have slowed down quite a bit as well, and none of these products unfortunately seems stable enough for me to rely on (and I’d like to!)

...and the Nulis ‘About’ page has been wiped clean - not a great sign.
