Collaborative Writing: Edit, Comment, Compare and Revise with Editorially

Robin Good's curator insight, September 9, 2013 7:23 PM



Editorially is a collaborative free online editor which focuses on making it easy to revise, modify and comment on any text. With a minimal and inobtrusive UI, Editorially shines when it comes to see different contributors edits to the same text or to compare different versions of a story by different editors.


To format text the Markdown annotation approach is used, freeing the user from having to deal with menus and buttons.


Editorially automatically saves new versions of your text and it makes it easy to go back and see every single revision and edit made.


It is possible to import plain text files and to export both Markdown and HTML. All mobile devices and screens are supported.



My comment: Elegant, simple, easy to use. It offers powerful revision features making a very good alternative to other collaborative editors.



Free to use.
