What are some of the toughest engineering problems Reedsy is facing now?
We're building a pretty awesome book production tool that uses operation transformations (OT) with shareJS. It's got the look and feel of Medium but designed for books. It exports perfectly formatted EPUB and PDF files. There's many more features to add. You can see the current version here: https://reedsy.com/write-a-book
