Why not open the source?

Of course, Haroopad will be the open-source at v1.0.

When Haroopad v0.1, anyone not interested. But now Haroopad has a lot of interest. It is highly appreciated.

And also I think the value of open source is really important and big for the people. For that being true, focus and commitment is very important in the early project. But it is often hampered by the open-source work.

So I just want to contain my thoughts about human writing and markdown to version 1.0.

Current version v0.13. And v0.14 will be version v1.0.
