Welcome to Hawkee

Hawkee is a writing platform for web developers. Our goal is to give developers an outlet to write elegant and beautiful articles containing code and demos. Hawkee was originally built to share code snippets, but it has evolved into more than just a pastebin. There are an innumerable number of content management systems and writing platforms, so what sets Hawkee apart? We have an untutive page editor that utlizes Markdown and CodeMirror to quickly and easily write about code. We also support CodePen to demonstrate your code in action. No other writing platform focuses so much on developers.

Hawkee is an open network where everything is public and freely available to share. Our system works very much like Twitter in that users can follow and be followed. Developers can build a following and earn points by contributing valuable content and feedback.
