Yo Dawg, I heard you like Etherpad, so we put Live Pastes in your Talker

We’re huge fans of EtherPad. We use it for writing important emails, blog posts (including this one) and all text on the site. But as you might know, EtherPad has been acquired by Google and will shutdown on March 31st.

The good news is that the EtherPad team was kind enough to open source their project. So we took the collaborative editor at the root of all EtherPad magic, and made it work with our server. Starting from now, all pastes (any message with a line break) in a Talker chat will be a Live Paste that you can edit, as a team, in real-time:

Simply paste some text in your Talker chat room, click on Edit paste and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time with anyone in the room. The great news is that every plan has unlimited Live Pastes out of the box!

Having Live Pastes in Talker means that you can be sure that your edited text can be saved securely and privately.

This is just one of the ideas we had to improve how you work with your team, stay tuned for more and signup if you haven’t done so already.

Happy live pasting!

- Marc
