nts is an utility to manage notes using simple text files.

nts is an acronym for Note Taking Simplified. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store notes, a command line interface for viewing notes in a variety of convenient ways and a cross-platform, wx(python)-based GUI for creating and modifying notes as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by path or tag and can be filtered in various ways.

Main features:

  • Use nts and its note files on any platfrom. Both the gui and command line versions work under MS Windows, Linux and OS X.
  • Unicode is fully supported.
  • Simple and efficient with almost no overhead.
  • Quickly enter notes using a simple, intuitive format:
  • ------------------- begin text file ---------------------------
  • + note title (optional comma-separated list of tags)
  • note body on one or more lines
  • + another note title (possibly with tags)
  • and its body
  • ...
  • --------------------- end text file ---------------------------
  • Edit notes internally or with a external editor of your choice. When using an external editor, a shortcut either opens the selected note file or, when a note is selected, opens the file at the beginning line of the note.
  • Export selected items in rst (restructured text) format.
  • Display selected items as HTML with an option to print.
  • Use standard, restructured text markup in note bodies. This markup will be maintained when exporting in rst format and will be reflected when displaying/printing notes in HTML format.
  • View items sorted by path or tag.
  • Limit the display to items whose paths, tags and/or bodies match regex)search strings.
