Screenwriter-mode is a plug-in for Emacs, a free, cross-platform, text editor.
It’s a fork of screenplay-mode.
screenwriter-mode is about as automated as Trelby in terms of flow; it doesn’t auto-detect a slug line.
The plug-in is released under an open source license. You’ll need Emacs installed to use this elisp extension.
- Produces plain text files; there’s no meta-data or special file format.
- No conversion is required.
- Ships with screenplay-tools – a set of shell scripts written to fine-tune the screenwriting process:
- screenplay-build – builds a single-document screenplay from each scene. This is intended as a quick, single-file preview of your screenplay only and does not contain page-numbers or scene numbers.
- screenplay-title – generates a properly formatted title page for a screenplay. This interactively creates and saves the file ‘title.page’ with a capitalized and centered title, a correctly placed by-line, and your contact info.
- screenplay-print – formats the script for printing.
- screenplay-character – extracts character names from the screenplay and generates a report for casting purposes. It searches for all the capitalized character names with dialogue.
- screenplay-location – extracts location names from the screen play and generates a report for location scouting.
- List of all (unique) locations.
- List of all INT. locations.
- List of all EXT. locations.
- List all locations in script order.
- Generate all of the above in one report.
- Cross-platform support.
