New from the developers of Tincta:
Decision log for your project.
The perfect app for documenting your project decisions and an ideal tool for architecture decision records (ADR).

A Free Text Editor for Mac

Tincta is an elegant one-window text editor for macOS. It is intuitive to use on personal tasks like writing blog posts, drafting emails or jotting down grocery lists. But it also has all functionality you need for professional webdesign and programming.


Tincta comes with all the features you expect from a professional text editor:

And lots of useful little details that will make you love it:

You can also download Tincta for free from the Mac App Store

And as Tincta is open source, you can also check out the repository and build it yourself. This should not be too hard. Just take a look at the read-me.

Why Open Source

For a while now we concentrate on our efforts on two other projects:
Wokabulary, a flash card app focused on language learning for Mac, iPhone and iPad.
And Loqbooq, a decision log for project management and ADR.

Tincta still has many fans, though, (including ourselves) and we don't want to just abandon this useful tool. Therefore we decided to open source Tincta and release small updates on the Mac App Store whenever people contribute to it (also including ourselves).

Support Development

If you want to support development of Tincta, consider purchasing Wokabulary. It's the best app to learn your vocabulary.

Or make your project's decision process speedier and more transparent with our Decision logging app Loqbooq.
