I started an example syntax for Fountain, the “plain text markup language for screenwriting”. This builds on the new custom syntax support in v26.
While I can read specs, I’m not a screenwriter, and have never used Fountain, so it’s likely this doesn’t cover aspects of the way this syntax should work, but I wanted to get a good starting point out there to build on. If people try it and have feedback, please comment.
Right now, the Fountain syntax supports:
- Navigation by scene heading (like
INT - OFFICE)
- Highlighting scene headings.
- Markup for characters, lyrics, transitions, emphasis, bold, bold-italic.
Please feel free to join the conversation if you plan to use Fountain in Drafts and have ideas/feedback.
