In which I talk about a hypothetical story design app that I need and am trying to make a reality

@voidspiral This might just be sort of your alleyway, although it does cost a bunch, is not multiplatform at all, and has a subscribtion model, which for a desktop app I'm not a fan of:

But as an inspiration for you, it may serve its purposes...

@halcek Wow, I remember looking at this like YEARS ago, and I forgot about it completely. Not sure how it'd work for longer projects/wikis, but might be worth a shot. Thanks!

@voidspiral I mean there is always, which has a very nice branching structure, but that seems way too simple for what you outlined I think?

@halcek I think I'm going to run with CherryTree for a bit, because I've managed to write a decent parser for the data format. It works fast enough for me to use in the middle of a live D&D game and I can get my data back out. Hits most of the marks. So Far.

@halcek You know, I tried this one too, but now that I look at it again, I can't remember why I didn't go with it. As I mentioned, I loved Scrivener, but it exports garbage. I'll give Manuskript a try again.


@halcek I must have been mad. Manuskript is incredible. Take the stuff out of Scrivener that I didn't like, default it to Markdown, and boom. I may stick to CherryTree for tabletop gaming campaign notes, but I'm excited to try this out on a real project. Thanks for the kick in the pants @halcek !
