Editing your blog posts can be a daunting task. This is especially true if you’re in the habit of using some great vocabulary. While using everything at your vocabulary-ic disposal is great, it may not be clear enough for most of our readers. I am in the habit of continuously passing these posts I write, here, through the Hemingwayapp. Hemingway is a great tool. And I it use to edit articles like these so that I may further simplify the language I use, before publishing a post.
Compared to Hemingwayapp, Cleartext is just plain awesome when it comes to writing simply. It only lets you use 1000 of the most common words in the English language to write your articles, or whatever it is that you want to write. What’s more is that ClearText is completely open source.

Cleartext is the work of Morten Just. The idea was born out of the book Think Explainer by Randall Monroe. By only using the 1000 most common words in English to write, you can make things real easy to read. And that’s precisely the goal here with Cleartext, and so far it’s been a splendid experience!
**Cleartext is only available for the Mac OS X 10.11+. **
Oh, Cleartext also has something called the “Trump mode”, and it’s been trained with Donald Trump’s best known speeches. Download it, and take it out for a spin (Cleartext is only available for the Mac OS X 10.11+). Follow @mortenjust on twitter for updates.
