Minimalist editor

Description

When you just want to focus on what you’re writing, the default WordPress editor can feel cluttered, with distractions surrounding your content.

Inspired by editors such as WriteRoom.

Works by installing the plugin and activating Distraction Free Writing mode.

Very well executed minimal writing UI. I love Byword for Mac and this plugin brings that kind of true distraction free writing to the WordPress editor. Nice work! Featured on the iThemes Plugin Roundup for October 2018.
