Typehut was built with one goal in mind: to be flexible enough so that you can build any kind of publication with it, but simple enough that it wouldn't take you more than a few minutes to get started.
Posts can be anything you want: articles, essays, short-form, long-form, pictures, links… all written using Markdown.
Categorize your posts by assigning labels to them. This way you can keep your content neatly organized, as visitors can filter by label when navigating your site.
Your audience can subscribe to your site, so whenever you publish anything new they'll get automatically notified via email. You can export your list of subscribers too, we'll never make you hostage of our platform.
Tailor your site to your needs by choosing between one of our ready-made templates or by coding yours using our template engine.
We create a [your-site.typehut.com] URL for you when you sign up, but if you want to use your own address you can point any domain you own to Typehut and use that.
Limit access to your sites with a password. Share it only with your clients, premium audience, friends…
There are some things we want to do, but we haven't gotten to them yet. These are the things we're going to be working on next
Publish and manage your posts from anywhere you want or build your own apps on top of the Typehut platform.
Keeping Typehut simple means we don't have many features other platforms have, but we believe it's for the best.
Our editor is as simple as it gets: a plain textarea. You can of course use Markdown to add styles to your content, but we don't have a full-fledged visual editor.
We're currently deciding the amount of metrics that feel right for Typehut, but you'll probably never get a very advanced view into your audience data.
We're not building a full CMS suite, so plugins are off the roadmap. We feel like a plugin system would end up being detrimental to the simplicity of the platform.
