pen: terminal notes
pen is a minimalistic note taking app for the command line.
What is this?
With pen you can have notes everywhere. At least on every unix machine. What makes it special is that it is “only“ a command line application. Therefore you can even run it on your own server. Pen has a minimalistic interface; notes can be added and grouped in a simple manner.
It's as simple as that:
$ pip install penpal
Unfortunately "pen" was already taken.
pen all - List all notes recursively.
pen create <list> - Create a list.
pen delete <list> (<note>) - Delete a list or note.
pen help - Display help information.
pen help <command> - Displays help for a command.
pen stores all its data (with zlib compression) in the file
You are free to do whatever you want with this data, it is yours after all.
This is helpful, if you want to keep your notes synchronized over multiple computers.
Move the data file over to your Dropbox folder for example.
You can also change the path of the storage file:
pen path <path> - Either prints the current storage path or sets a new one.
So go out there and hack some code!
- Minimalistic and simple note editor.
- Automatic saving when closed.
- Create lists to group notes.
- Put the storage file wherever you want. (Supports Dropbox & co.)
