If you are landing here for the first time, let us fill you in on what Scrite is. It is a free and open-source screenplay writing app for Mac and PC (soon for Linux also). It is more than a formatting app for your screenplay. With Scrite you can capture the structure (or shape) of your story in a very visual way. We have a rather detailed user guide here, if you want to skim through it to get a sense of what the app does.
Scrite is an open-source project and it can surely use your participation. You can participate in the development of Scrite in several ways.
- Software Development: Scrite is developed using Qt 5.13.2, the world’s leading cross-platform UI development framework. If you are a Qt developer, then you will feel right at home. To contribute patches to the code, Please visit our GitHub repository and clone a copy of the code to your computer.
