So, I’ve been code-blogging (a fancy term I’ve come up with) for over 2 years now. And to be honest, it’s been a fantastic experience! Not only did it gave me a chance to share my knowledge, but also to establish my position in the industry.
But I know I’m not the only one! Code-blogging has been rising steadily in popularity, as more and more knowledgeable people enter the field, with intention of sharing and build their portfolios.
With that said, there is one pretty significant downside to code-blogging, and that is the lack of tooling. Blogging in this niche requires the creator to deal with things that aren’t required anywhere else, like code snippets. Different platforms and tools handle such things differently, with varying user-friendliness.
Personally, none of them delivered the experience that I’d deemed good, requiring me to copy-paste my code snippets for formatting and handling compatibility issues across publishing platforms.
And that’s why I created CodeWrite!
CodeWrite is a writing tool designed specifically for code-blogging, that comes in a form of a browser extension. I’d go as far as to say that it’s one-of-a-kind and thus the best code-blogging tool.
It brings code-blogging to the next level, thanks to a beautifully-crafted editing experience with a full-fledged, batteries-included code editor for handling your code snippets!
But that’s not all! CodeWrite was created with intention of making every aspect of code-blogging better - including publishing!
In this aspect, CodeWrite introduces something that hasn’t been done before - one-click publishing. This means that you can write your post, pin it, and go to one of supported services (for start these are Dev.to, Hashnode, and Medium), open the CodeWrite pop-up, and click the publishing button! CodeWrite will automatically detect all known incompatibilities - like too large images or lack of code highlighting - and allow you to choose the solution - in our example, resize the image, and use GitHub Gists (access token required)!
But I won’t bother you with marketing, as there’s a lot more to talk about - like great compatibility with Grammarly, included search, offline support, and standalone mode. No. Instead, you should go and see it for yourself!
So, if you’re a code-blogger and want to make your work that much more pleasing - go to codewrite.io, hit download, and give it a try in a demo mode!
CodeWrite starts at $3/month (a penny compared to time and friction saved), but there’s a treat for you - dear reader of this announcement post!
Use the code first100 to get 20% off - lifetime! But that’s only for the first 100 of you!
So, thanks for checking out CodeWrite, and leave your thoughts below! Also, be sure to upvote CodeWrite on ProductHunt, follow the development on Twitter, and check out the CodeWrite Discord for on-going CodeWrite discussions! See you there - on the brighter side of code-blogging!
