The type of users that I would like to target, will be those writting
documents of more than 10 - 12 pages. Typically students or professional
that are used to write reports with Word but would be interested to use
a more productive editor, but not ready to move too far away from WYSIWYG.
For me, being able to work offline is almost a must have. Having an
online mode could enable some interesting features, such as
collaborative editing, but if the application is internet dependant and
you have a problem with your internet connection, then you cannot do the
very basics you would expect from a document editor.
From my understanding, Atom is a modified version of Chrome that
behaves like an offline editor, so that's an option that I would like to
Actually I am working for a web development company, I will submit the
idea, as it could well be that there are other use cases, that I am not
aware of, where such an editor as a web application could make sense.
But still, a standalone application makes sense to me for the use cases

better user experience.
Anyone interested by the concept?
sounds interesting, there might be overlap with what I tried for an editorial
system (web-app on which I can’t work for the time being, since the customer
plays dead and I got other projects):
There I use an usual HTML editor plugin (TinyMCE, CKEditor) and would convert
its output to ConTeXt and whatever the customer wants, most probably IDML
(InDesign-XML). User formatting must be restricted to predefined styles (also
As far as I understood, Pragma has something similar running for educational
A standalone app like LyX wouldn’t fit my needs. Consider creating it as a
plugin to some platform like Atom or a web framework?
