Giterary is a tool that helps to just write, while giving you the tools for maintaining the complexity of the novel-writing process.

But really it’s a wiki (currently in beta) combining git and Markdown to manage documents, with the intent on providing git-style source control management and other organization and editing tools tailored for lengthy, complex writing projects that need to be worked on by more than one person at a time.


The README file should explain what this is all about. All-caps more out of convention, less so the shouting.

You can check out the installation instructions.


Everyone could use a little help. Or a huge help file.


A set of frequently asked questions, if you think your questions have been asked 1 or more times before.


Two fine examples for you to consider:

  • An example story structure, complete with structures, collections, lists, tags, and templates suggested as ways to make use of Giterary’s functionality.
  • Play with a test instance of Giterary yourself at the playground. Pro tip: stay off the metal slide if it’s a sunny day.


What kind of a person would do such a thing?


As a tool for creative works, it’s probably important to know what type of license this uses. (Nothing scary, though.)

You can also view all of this documentation in a single page, if you need to do so.

Also, all documentation on this site is written in Markdown syntax, which you can preview at any time by selecting Other Options > Document Source.
