Verbose Guacamole is packed with features designed to help you write your novel quickly and efficiently. Here are a few examples:
Built-in word sprint timer
Built-in goal tracker
Version Control via Git
File labels to visually categorize scenes
Native export capability to EPUB, Markdown, Raw Text, and NaNoWriMo Obfuscated Text, with guides to convert to more formats.
Switchable color themes
The visual layout of Verbose Guacamole was designed to allow you as much space as possible to write.
The Git and Filetree panels can each be collapsed, and most of the more advanced features are hidden behind icons in the Novel Stats bar on the bottom. Even the word count status allows you to set goals when you click on it, and a progress bar will fill in its background as you write.
Finally, all of the extra UI elements can be hidden by toggling Focus Mode by hitting F11, selecting Tools => Focus Mode in the application menu, or pressing the fullscreen icon in the menu of the editor.
Verbose Guacamole was built with the future in mind—the codebase is built to be extended in the future to bring you highly requested features that didn't make it into the first release:
Split screen (edit two scenes side by side)
Third-party themes (or build your own)
Syncing between devices via Git
Multiligual support (for spellcheck, and potentially UI)
