NOTE provides a console note management tool.

NOTE is a small console program that allows you to manage notes similar to programs like "knotes" from the command line. It supports different database backends for storage, and includes a DBI-based MySQL module and another module that uses a binary file for storage and a DBM module.

Main features:

  • Several different database backends, mysql(DBI), dbm, binary(bin file), general and text (text files).
  • Commandline interface using the standard perl module etopt::Long, which allows you tuse short or long command-line options.
  • Interactive interface(pure ascii), the following functions are available in interactive mode: list, display, topic, delete, edit, help.
  • Highly confiurable using a perlish configfile ~/.noterc. although it is configurable it is not required, note can run without a configfile using useful default presets.
  • Colourized output is supported using ASCII Escape-Sequences.
  • The user can customize the color for each item.
  • Data can be stored in various different database backends, since all database access is excluded from the program itself in perl modules.
  • Notes can be deleted, edited and you can search trough your notes.
  • Notes can be categorized. Each category(topic) can contain multiple notes and even more sup-topics. There is nlimitation about sub topics.
  • You can view all notes in a list and it is possible only tview notes under a certain topic.
  • There is a tree-view, which allows you tget an overview of your topic-hierarchy.
  • Notes can be encrypted using DES or IDEA algorythms and Crypt::CBC.
  • You can dump the contents of your note database inta plain text file, which can later be imported. Imports can be appended or it can overwrite an existing database (-o).
  • Note has scripting capabilities, you can create a new note by piping another commands output tnote, you can alsimport a notedump from stdin as well es duming tstdout instead a file. Additional, there is an option --raw available, which prints everything out completely without formatting.
  • for better performance, note can cache the database for listings or searching.
  • It can be installed without root-privileges.
  • if Term::ReadLine (and Term::ReadLine::Gnu) is installed, history and auto-completion are supported in interactive mode.
  • Last, a while aga user stated: "... it simply does, what it says ..."
