Test-driving Write.as on mobile

Is Write.as usable on mobile?

Let's find out. I'm writing this with the Write.as plain text editor in Chrome on a Pixel 4 XL Android phone.

I can use nearly all the editor's features except for attaching images, which I'm not sure is possible on mobile. The distraction-free environment is clean and makes a lot of text fit on the screen.

Markdown formatting

Here's some rich text I'm typing with Markdown syntax in italics and bold. Some Python code:

def square(x):
    return x * x

A bullet list:

A numbered list:

  1. one
  2. two
  3. three

Quoted text:

This is quoted text. I wish I had some witty thought to share for the occasion.

And finally some displayed MathJax: $$y = f(x)$$

Conclusion

The Write.as editor is quite usable for posting text content on mobile. The only limit is how fast I can type with the on-screen keyboard.
