Wax is a web-based word processor developed by Coko. It is the styling/formatting interface in use within Editoria, and the manuscript annotation and presentation portal in use in PubSweet platforms such as eLife’s Libero Reviewer, and Hindawi’s Phenom. Editoria provides context-sensitive tagging and formatting and a track-changes workflow, as well as many features driven by the needs of university press workflows. The initial version of Wax was based on the library (as with Texture); Wax 2 is based on the ProseMirror library.
