OWL : Outliner with Wiki Linking (Electron Edition)
Wrapping OWL as a desktop app. using Electron.
This is a quick test to see if I can make a desktop app. from it using Electron.
Seems I can, and it's very nice. :-)
git clone https://github.com/interstar/owl-electron.git owl cd owl npm install ./node_modules/.bin/electron .
OWL will now run as a desktop app.
To create a link to a page, just write the name, highlight it and click the "Link" button. The text will become a hyperlink to the page.
If the page doesn't exist yet, it will be automatically created.
Pages are automatically saved whenever you leave them for another page. If you want to force a page, just hit the "back" arrow and the "forward" arrow again.
If you want to change the directory where pages are stored, open up the local_setup.js file and change the line
pageStore = new NodeBasedPageStore("./pages");
pageStore = new NodeBasedPageStore(YOUR-PAGE-PATH);
