ravel is a tool for making unfolding texts out of the html details tag.

it is early and missing features and most distinctly does not work in safari or on phones like even a little.

BUT.

it's here.


welcome to ravel!
ravel is a tool for making unfolding texts out of the html details tag.
write text in the "Write" tab, left
(click on any piece of text to edit it)
while writing, press enter to make a new node of editable text
it will be nested under the node you were writing in
you can drag and drop nodes to reorder them
hit the [x] to delete a node
be careful! if that node has nested nodes, it will delete them too
(with a warning, of course)
changes are saved
(you can leave this page and come back to your work later)
preview text in the "View" tag, center
you can interact with it here, and collapse and expand details
grab your code out of the "Code" tab, right
you can put this code on any website that supports html!
style it further with css!
ravel is developed by Everest Pipkin
it is still in beta, and may be buggy or unstable
check back in soon for changes and updates!

in reply to @everest's post:

thank you :3 when I was making it I started by doing some copy-paste from Word, and the code went very custom, in that it generated html to completely replicate font and size of plain body text that remained until I wiped those div families. If you auto pasted as just text that would I assume not happen maybe? The secondary thing being, I couldn't (unless I missed it) find a way to edit the code in the ravel site for things like links/formatting, as I assume(?) all the text you put in the build boxes gets coded as text, because I tried using markdown asterisks to see if it worked automatically over here, but didn't come through in previews, and links broke the <>s. But, those are reallly small things! The drag & drop was really cool, and it was nice being able to go one level down with Returns. It's a really lovely tool. <3
