My Twine Tools

Most of my Twine toolchain involves getting longer stories in and out of Scrivener, and so is documented as part of Scree, but I thought it might be helpful to go over it from a non-Scree perspective as well. A few basics of the Twine ecosystem will help here:


Story Formats


I blogged the following CSS, when I used it to make SugarCube 2 look a bit more like SugarCube 1 in Choose Your Own Writing Career. To use it, place it in your StoryStyles section (in a Twee file) or into the Stylesheet popup accessible from Twine 2’s story menu. If you are also using Bleached (like I was), place it after all the Bleached styles.

``` /* makes SugarCube 2 look a little more old-school tested with SugarCube 2.20.0 - mcdemarco */

html { font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, Roboto, Oxygen, Ubuntu, Cantarell, “Fira Sans”, “Droid Sans”, “Helvetica Neue”, Helmet, Freesans, Arial, sans-serif; }

ui-bar-body {

text-align:right; }

ui-bar-history [id|=history],

button#ui-bar-toggle, #menu-core, #menu ul, #menu ul li, #menu li:not(:first-child) { border:0; }

ui-bar-history [id|=history],

button#ui-bar-toggle { color: #68d; }

menu li a {

padding: 0;
padding-top: .25em;
text-transform: none;
cursor: pointer;
color: #68d;
background-color: transparent;
text-decoration: none;
border:0; } #menu li a:hover {
