TuxCards is the notebook for TuxFreaks and for everyone who likes to use it.
TuxCards is a hierarchical notebook. That was created out of the desire to let my own chaos of papers, notes, and post-it's vanish. Those items are useful but the chaos I produced was not.
Now, regular digital notebooks do already exist in lots of different shapes, there - similar to real notebooks - I found it quite difficult to keep track of my entries and to sort them.
Through a friend I got to know CueCards; this is a really nice program that exists for Windows. Since I am using Linux almost permanently, I got the idea to write a similar tool for myself and let every Linux/Unix user share it.
- Notes can be composed using richtext elements.
- There are no theoretical/practical limits on the tree-depth, on the quantity of the items and on the size of the notes.
- At every start, TuxCards will automatically load your last datas.
- The tree-structure (on the left side) is also reproduced as it was found at your last saving.
- Drag & Drop of entries between completely different TuxCards applications is possible. Just try it.
- Entry History.
- Create notes with an expiration date.
- Encryption using MD5 and BlowFish.
- Customizable icons: All icons used within the gui may be exchanged.
- Cactus-Support, expandable with own flower images.
- Command line options (try tuxcards -h).
- Support of cygwin version as well of a statically linked binary.
