vim-pad

A quick notetaking plugin for vim.

It offers a similar way of managing notes to the one made popular by tools like Notational Velocity, where file management is removed from the notetaking workflow, being replaced by searching and sorting facilities, and where the creation and searching of notes is integrated.

Notes in vim-pad are free-form; in fact it tries to make it easy to use any format you want. It works great along other plugins like VimOutliner and quicktask.

IMPORTANT: vim-pad requires +python and +conceal support from vim. Check if the flags are enabled in :version. Currently, it also requires either a grep with perl regexes support or ack, which might not be the case under OSX. Windows is not supported.
