Deployment got harder as their platform shifted beneath us, and one day recently our entire site was replaced by a simple message that said, "We no longer support Go 1.9." That was a fun day!
The idea was that the applications would share common components (https://github.com/writeas/web-core), but would have separate application codebases and storage.
So, starting with @submit_as, we built the functionality into the Write.as codebase. There was still plenty of copy-paste involved, but we were able to launch this new product much more quickly.
Now instead of creating separate apps first, we're building them into Write.as first and then separating out functionality over time.
This instance is only for A Bunch Tell projects.
