Now people can support your work on Prototypr – with a Ko-Fi! Ko-Fi is a friendly way to ask fans to fund your passions for the price of a coffee.

💙 Get a coffee on us: We’re supporting 100 Prototypr writers and contributors who complete their profile with their Ko-fi page.

Just update your Prototypr profile with your Ko-Fi link, and a ☕️ ‘Buy me a coffee’ badge will appear on all your articles. Check out the footer and sidebar of this post as an example.

A simple and powerful new way to write and reach the Prototypr audience. Introducing our brand new editor:

  • 🤍 Distraction-free: The focus is on the words

  • 💾 Autosave: peace of mind, that my work is being autosaved

  • 👁 Preview: Check how it looks before publishing

  • 🎭 Code view: Jump into the code to add custom HTML and CSS

This is a first version, so if you notice any issues, please get in touch. There’s also a few features still to come such as custom embeds (e.g. for codepen or code sandbox). For now though, you have full control of the HTML/CSS using the code view toggle, so could paste in your own embeds directly.

Introducing the new Prototypr ‘Projects‘ feature 🎉! You can now show off your work to prospective employers by creating a very simple portfolio right here on Prototypr, just by pasting links.

After launching the new ‘People’ page last month, Projects makes those profile pages even more useful! We’ll be highlighting profiles and projects in future newsletters and through our social networks to help people find jobs in these challenging times.

Last week we launched the new Prototypr 3, with an open space to publish articles without the boundaries of sign up walls and popups. We finished 3rd on Product Hunt, and are already at nearly 3,000 members!

Introducing Prototypr Open Stories

And today, I’m excited to share our new editor – now you can directly contribute to our Open Stories section from a new editing dashboard. The publishing tools include:

  • 📝 An Editor: Write and edit your posts.

  • 🖼 Media Library: Easily upload images for your articles.

  • 👁 Preview: See how your drafts will look when published.

If you’re curious about the tech involved, the editor we’re using is the magical WordPress Gutenberg editor. It can handle contributor content, and is something stable for the short term.

In the future, we’ll be putting together a faster, custom editor! For now though, Gutenberg lets us get started right away.

Open publishing

  • Anyone can read what you publish.

  • Write about anything: we love side projects, case studies, and career learnings.

  • You control when your post is published (no approval needed).
