Prosit by quickhand

Fullscreen structured writer forked from GottCode's FocusWriter

About Prosit

Prosit is a fullscreen, distraction-free text processor based on Graeme Gott's excellent FocusWriter ( The difference between FocusWriter and Prosit is that Prosit offers options for semantic structure (headings, blockquotes, etc.), and removes purely display-related options such as indent-levels and alignment, in an attempt to mesh better with the idea of what-you-see-is-what-you-mean (WYSIWYM) rather than what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editing. As such, and to better separate content from presentation, Prosit abandons the RTF format, instead adopting a lightweight markup language called Proseup ( as its main input/output format.



Prosit is based on Qt, and so runs on Linux, Windows, and OS X. Prosit's output format is the plaintext format Proseup, a lightweight and humane markup language perfectly readable in any text editor.
