I'm cataloging feedback I receive so you all know I'm listening, and will be iteratively adding these items as we move forward over the next week or two.
You can find the list on the post below. I'll be updating this post in real time from feedback I get here, on Twitter, or through Intercom (blue button on site).
I know it can be confusing. I'm going to make a better gif on the landing page to help explain the entire process from start to finish.
But you are right, I believe a git based cms/blog that runs in some standalone fashion could be a v2 or v3 of this product. Or perhaps a one-off paid option if you don't want to use GitHub, you can pay to use our private git repo or even a git repo you host on your own.
But what's a `git based cms/blog' ? A static website generator that commit on heroku ? Or a cli/gui post manager that uses git command-line argument as an API ?
1. Better to include a demo. If I'm using this service I'd want to know how the blog looks like.
2. The gif doesn't really look smooth. Maybe consider using a low-quality mp4.
I've logged, and I already have a blog on github, and everything seems not very intuitive. But the idea sure is great
Do you think I should open source the project? Right now the Android app and the web-app (mentioned above) are closed source, but the philosophy of this platform is about open source writing - and to not have an open source application powering that seems antithetical. What do you think?
