I’m headed out for day, will respond to any questions when I get back or early tomorrow. I feel like I’m getting close to 1.0 feature set. I still need to do licensing, docs, lots of stuff … but I think app is getting close. With that in mind please keep an eye out for details that should be fixed before 1.0! Thanks!


Many thanks – this feels like a very comfortable and undistracting space in which to think now : -)

Back into my comfort zone of:

// Base text
@text-color: rgb(233, 179, 122);
@background-color: rgb(45, 45, 45, 0);

and the IME interactions are very readable now:
