[Fountain](http://fountain.io/) is a simple markup language for writing screenplays in plain text.
With Fountain, you can write a screenplay in any text editor without worrying about spacing and margins and indentation. Once you put it through a conversion utility like [Highland](https://screenwriting.io/what-is-highland/), it will come out in [proper screenplay format](https://screenwriting.io/what-is-standard-screenplay-format/).

Since Fountain is just plain text, it’s future-proof. You’ll never run into problems with obsolete file formats or incompatible software.
