OTTR helps build github based websites with less hassle. Catch potential mistakes before they go live

OTTR runs url, spell checks and renders a preview upon each pull request so you can check it before you publish it

OTTR for courses

OTTR originally started as a way to publish full online courses. If this is your interest, OTTR can help you write one course but publish it in three places.

OTTR provides tools for customized spell check, checks for broken urls, checks for formmating, and tools to convert and render files to be compatible across publishing platforms to allow you to publish on  bookdown, Leanpub, and coursera more easily
