Scraft was started by Tyler Kim in Jan 2022 with a goal to build a free writing tool that helps with organizing and expressing ideas in writing. After many trials and errors, I came up with the current version where user plan, draft, and write aided by OpenAI's GPT-3 and custom text-mining algorithm.

The core idea of Scraft is taking advantage of AI's curiosity to improve and stimulate your critical thinking skills. This was inspired by an age-old Socratic Method, a teaching method used by Socrates where he would continuously ask quality questions to his students to widen their views. To learn more about my inspirations behind Scraft, check out this blog post.

The first public beta was released on August 2022 after eight months of solo-development. For now, I am focusing on making Scraft more stable to be a viable product. I'm always looking for ways to improve Scraft and make it available for more people who wishes to train and improve their writing skills.
