Ajour

Ajour is a simple command line tool for leaving notes on the go.

A simple way to keep a collaborative journal in git projects to make small notes, write down thoughts, ideas and comments or just managing a journal in personal projects.

Installation

Ajour is built on node.js, Install node.js.

$ npm install -g ajour

or via git clone:

$ git clone git://github.com/gopatrik/ajour.git
$ cd ajour
$ npm install -g

You might have to restart your shell for the ajour command to work

Usage

To make an entry saying "Hello World" we simply type:

ajour Hello World

Will produce the file ajour.md (if it doesn't already exist):

# Sun Jan 18 2015 19:20:30 GMT+0100 (CET)
Hello World

Tailing

We could also tail on the previous entry by appending the -t flag, and our entry won't be prepended with a timestamp.

$ ajour Example note one
$ ajour Example note two
$ ajour Tailing example note two -t

ajour.md:

# Sun Jan 18 2015 19:21:50 GMT+0100 (CET)
Example note one

# Sun Jan 18 2015 19:21:59 GMT+0100 (CET)
Example note two
Tailing example note two

Flags

-t 				-- Tail on previous note (no timestamp)

Suggestions/Thoughts

  • Have the file ajour.md append from the top instead of the bottom.
  • Alias "ajour" to something super short like "n" for more efficient note-taking.

Todo

  • GitHub user support
