A simple, command line, note taking utility.
Mimir is a simple, command line based note taking application. Designed with git syntax and usage in mind, its aim is to provide quick, concise notes, that can be easily included in the project/directory where they are created.
Mimir can be initialized within any directory. Each mimir instance keep track of its own notes.
Initialize mimir within a directory:
This will create a new directory, .mimir, and a config file, .mimir/.mimir-config
Delete mimir from a directory:
This deletes the mimir present in the working directory. It will also delete any config files and all notes.
To create a new note, simply:
mimir This is my brand new note!
Or, to add a new note with tags:
mimir This is a note with a @tag
The note will be added to .mimir/mimir_notes.txt
To show notes:
mimir -s 1 mimir -s 2
Will show the last one and two notes, respectively.
mimir @tag1 mimir @tag1 @tag2
If only tags are provided to mimir, it will assume you want to search by tags, rather than create a new note
Notes can also be searched via date fences:
mimir --since 2010 --until october mimir --since june mimir --until 2015
Date fences can be mixed with tags and the -s option for more fine grained searching.
To edit notes:
This will open the mimir notes file in your specified editor (this must be set in .mimir-config)
All notes in your Mimir notes file can be synced to an Evernote account. This requires an evernote account, as well as api keys. Instuctions to acquire these are provided in the app:
mimir sync -- syncs your notes file with the Evernote folder specified in your config file (MimirNotes by default) mimir generate_evernote_token -- Walks you through creating an access token for syncing
Finally, you can also view the status of your mimir, view a count of all tags present, or delete it entirely:
mimir status mimir tags mimir delete
