What is Fountain?

Fountain is a plain-text screenplay format. It allows you to write screenplays in any text editor on any device, and because it’s pure text, it’s portable and future-proof.

It might be a bit scary when coming from WYSIWYG editors, but in essence, Fountain is designed to “just work” — if you type some text that looks like screenplay, it becomes screenplay. Beat expands Fountain syntax a little, but still keeps it compatible with other editors.

Beat has an editable Tutorial to get you started with Fountain!
