TuxCards is the notebook for TuxFreaks and for everyone who likes to use it.
TuxCards is the notebook for TuxFreaks and for everyone who likes to use it or finds it useful during his or her work and play.

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.

Main features:

  • 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.
