Starting this thread to gain consensus on which to use

I mentioned elsewhere that I prefer paper. For me this is because it easy to build something that looks like a book chapter. It has good collaborative editing features, comment tracking, change tracking, etc

Santiago Pastorino (Nov 26 2019 at 20:27, on Zulip):

I'm fine with it

Santiago Pastorino (Nov 26 2019 at 20:28, on Zulip):

I kind of prefer hackmd though

Santiago Pastorino (Nov 26 2019 at 20:28, on Zulip):

and it's already markdown

Santiago Pastorino (Nov 26 2019 at 20:28, on Zulip):

but unsure if for this kind of collaborative things, commenting and all the stuff we are doing is as good as Paper

Amanjeev Sethi (Nov 26 2019 at 20:28, on Zulip):

What I like about hackmd is that it does not try to be extra helpful and create thumbnails for links pasted

Amanjeev Sethi (Nov 26 2019 at 20:29, on Zulip):

But the commenting of Paper is better, IMO.

Amanjeev Sethi (Nov 26 2019 at 20:29, on Zulip):

Hackmd's commenting is not bad though

mark-i-m (Nov 26 2019 at 20:30, on Zulip):

I haven't really ever done collaborative stuff with hackmd... just had a good experience with paper.

mark-i-m (Nov 26 2019 at 20:31, on Zulip):

I'm ok with using hackmd if that's what others prefer. I agree that already being in md is nice

Santiago Pastorino (Nov 26 2019 at 20:36, on Zulip):

let's try Hackmd and judge by having used both? :)

mark-i-m (Nov 26 2019 at 20:36, on Zulip):

:+1:

mark-i-m (Nov 26 2019 at 20:36, on Zulip):

Sounds good

mark-i-m (Nov 26 2019 at 20:42, on Zulip):

Can you create a hackmd and thread for the overview chapter?

Amanjeev Sethi (Nov 26 2019 at 20:47, on Zulip):

Sounds good to me too
