Oulipandr is an online constraint writing tool.
To add a writing constraint, click on the “Add a Constraint” button on the right side of the screen. Select your preferred constraint from the drop down list, then click “Add Constraint”. Once all of your desired constraints have been added, close the window and begin typing. Each constraint can be tailored to your desired requirements, and will highlight text that does not fit that constraint.
These constraints are inspired by the Oulipo movement.

This constraint is experimental, and should only be applied after the piece is finished and you’ve saved the original copy somewhere. There are no warnings for this constraint.
It is recommended you save your original writing somewhere else before running S+7.
