Notebook Overview

See the README.txt file for platform and installation information.

Notebook is a personal notebook application. It's for storing notes, to-do lists, daily logs, things you want to remember, neat ideas you might do something with some day, cute things your children said, bad jokes--all the kinds of things you would write down now if only you had a place to put them where you'd remember to look for them.

But Notebook is more than that. It's almost like a personal website. Whenever you enter notes into your Notebook, you effortlessly create hyperlinks to them, just like in a Web Page. The links allow you to find things again; and if they fail you there's a "search" box that will find every page containing the information you desire and an "Index" page that lists all the pages you create

If you've ever used a Wiki on the Web, Notebook is much like a personal Wiki. But it goes beyond that, because it's programmable. You can embed "Magic Buttons" in any page that do almost anything you can think of. And you can put "Embedded Macros" in any page to automatically include text into your pages.

Note: I'm not aware of any bugs, but it's likely that some are lurking; also, I have a list of projected enhancements that's a mile long. If you give Notebook a try, please don't be shy about letting me know about any problems you find, or enhancements you'd like.

Notebook Mailing List

If you have comments or questions about Notebook, or simply want to tell me that you've taken a look at it, you can always e-mail me at will@wjduquette.com. But if you're using Notebook on a regular basis, I hope you'll join the Notebook mailing list. It's a discussion forum for all things Notebook. You can join it by visiting the Notebook Mailing List page and signing up.

Once you're signed up, you can post messages to the list by sending them to notebook@lists.wjduquette.com. (The e-mail you get back from the list server will suggest you use notebook-wjduquette.com@lists.wjduquette.com, but the shorter form works just as well.

I hope to hear from you on-line!
