We also need fully-functional photo hosting to support people migrating to the platform, which means we need to update @snap_as.
I wrote a bit about the kind of re-architecting this required in early September: https://m.abunchtell.com/@writeas_dev/104841482469860342
All fixed! You can upload photos to your albums again now.
Sorry for all the downtime -- we're actively working on restoring the web application.
Updates here: https://status.snap.as
Adding photos with Snap.as https://video.writeas.org/videos/watch/c88f7af3-a06c-4285-a245-64763634a07d
A few things coming this month: basic API docs (https://developers.snap.as) and standalone accounts, i.e. no need to have a Write.as subscription.
Here it is! The official Snap.as browser extension. Just open it, drag a photo in, and the Markdown will be copied to your clipboard. Paste that in any Markdown-enabled editor (like @write_as) and there's your picture!
More about it on our blog: https://we.snap.as/uploading-from-anywhere
Coming very soon: a browser extension! Will make uploading photos and adding them to your @write_as posts much quicker.
Tiny recent fix: now albums link back to your profile in the header, instead of the Snap.as landing page (e.g. https://snap.as/matt/rules)
Now you can change your album titles and add a Markdown-enabled description — and the same for your profile.
Just like this! https://snap.as/matt/holden
