Writing and creating content i our Digital Writer is smooth and simple. The core of the writer is a well tested, speedy and structured text editor that allows your reporters to stay focused.
In the Digital Writer you can easily embedd tweet, instagram pictures, Facebook-posts or Linkedin-posts by drag-and-drop functionality or by pasting its url:s. Create teasers for your article, fully adopted to the webb, apps or social media.
Enrich your articles with boxed content, summaries or reviews. Or write your own plugin to the Digital Writer to make the addtions you need.
As a user you drag-and-drop images to your article, the Writer takes care of the rest. As a standard the image is beeing uploaded and stored in the Amazon S3 cloud. The meta-data will be extracted and an image preview is beeing created. With help from predefined soft-crops an imagecrop are automatically created without any involvement from the user. But of course you can adjust the image manually.
Metadata is king
Almost as important as the content it self is the meta data of the article. In a world controlled by algoritms, an article without metadata is almost invisible.
The Digital Writer has a number of adjustable fields for meta data so that you can classify your content the way you want. For example, categories, person, organisation, location, event or product.
The meta data used for publishing is easy to add wich makes the user love working in the user friendly interface of the Digital Writer.
Meta data can also be added by an integrated AI-service like the Google Natural Language API.
Develop your own plugins
TT Nyhetsbyrån have developed an image plugin for the Digital Writer so that you, as a user, are able to search for images from TT directly in the Digital Writer. Search, choose and drag-and-drop the images to the article.
Flowplayer, Screen9 and YouPlay have also developed plugins so that you will be able find, and enrich, your article with their video content.
Sharing is caring
The plugins you are creating can be shared with others, or not. If you miss a plugin, your developers can easily create new plugins for you that makes everyday worklife easier for your reporters.
