Typewriter is a Meteor app that brings distraction-free writing to the Kindle. It also periodically saves drafts into a backup folder. Read more at: http://www.shubhro.com/2015/01/30/writing-amazon-kindle/

  • Install Node and Meteor
  • cd meteor-app && meteor
  • (Separate shell) cd backup && npm install && node backup.js
  • Open localhost:3000/?editor in your computer's web browser
  • Open [your computer's IP address]:3000 in your Kindle's browser

Click on the computer web app's top left corner to start typing. What you type there will now instantly appear on the Kindle. Backups are saved every 15 seconds to the backup/backups folder. For the best experience, dim your computer monitor and type on an external keyboard.
