Pointless is an endless drawing canvas that provides useful features when you’re in need for a simple whiteboard/note app.

It is build using Tauri (Rust) and React with a pure SVG canvas and local files are saved with brotli compression to ensure small file sizes.

❗️ Currently, this app can only be build locally. Anytime soon there will be public releases available with prebuild binaries for MacOS, Windows and Linux.
