With features like intelligent code completion, integrations with dev tools and extensibility, IDEs have fundamentally simplified the way we code. Why can’t the tools we use to organize our work perform the same magic?
Using the knowledge bases and task managers of today often feels like a burden. Something always irks us about the user experience. We don't enjoy using the tools in teams and there always seem to be trade-offs when it comes to the single-player experience. An all-in-one tool but slow and clunky, a local-first knowledge base but non-collaborative and poorly integrated, a capable issue tracker but with a poor UI... It turns out, most of the collaborative interfaces have never been designed for developers but for PMs with developers in mind.
Our mission is to build the workflow tool you will love using alongside your code editor. Individually, but also in the team. Building such a tool is a difficult technical and design challenge.
This is the spec we have in mind today for such a tool:
We are building acreom to make building easier for other makers. We named it acreom to signify the creator, it's user.
