WriteFreely is a beautifully pared-down blogging platform that's simple on the surface, yet powerful underneath.

It's designed to be flexible and share your writing widely, so it's built around plain text and can publish to the fediverse via ActivityPub. It's easy to install and light enough to run on a Raspberry Pi.

Features

  • Start a blog for yourself, or host a community of writers
  • Form larger federated networks, and interact over modern protocols like ActivityPub
  • Write on a fast, dead-simple, and distraction-free editor
  • Format text with Markdown
  • Organize posts with hashtags
  • Create static pages
  • Publish drafts and let others proofread them by sharing a private link
  • Create multiple lightweight blogs under a single account
  • Export all data in plain text files
  • Read a stream of other posts in your writing community
  • Build more advanced apps and extensions with the well-documented API
  • Designed around user privacy and consent

Hosting

We offer two kinds of hosting services that make WriteFreely deployment painless: Write.as for individuals, and WriteFreely.host for communities. Besides saving you time, as a customer you directly help fund WriteFreely development.

Write.as

Start a personal blog on Write.as, our flagship instance. Built to eliminate setup friction and preserve your privacy, Write.as helps you start a blog in seconds. It supports custom domains (with SSL) and multiple blogs / pen names per account. Read more here.

WriteFreely.host

WriteFreely.host makes it easy to start a close-knit community — to share knowledge, complement your Mastodon instance, or publish updates in your organization. We take care of the hosting, upgrades, backups, and maintenance so you can focus on writing.

Quick start

WriteFreely has minimal requirements to get up and running — you only need to be able to run an executable.

Note this is currently alpha software. We're quickly moving out of this v0.x stage, but while we're in it, there are no guarantees that this is ready for production use.

To get started, head over to our Getting Started guide. For production use, jump to the Running in Production section.
