A simple, command line, note taking utility.

Project description

Mimir is a simple, small, command line note taking utility. Its intended function is to allow you to take a quick note whenever you need to, and then get out of the way. Mimir can be used anywhere, as it allows you to create a mimir in any directory (which allows for multiple mimirs in use at any given time). It can also be configured with a global instance.


Mimir has a simple subset of commands for usage.

To initialize mimir in a directory:

mimir init

This will create a .mimir directory, with a config file, as well as a notes file.

To begin taking notes in a directory containing a mimir:

mimir This is a test note.

You can also create notes using an editor by simply typing:


To view your mimir notes:

mimir -s 2

Where s is the number of notes you wish to view.

You can also edit your notes:

mimir edit

(To edit notes, you will need to set the editor config variable in .mimir/.mimir_config, mimir will warn you if this is not set)

Finally, you can also view the status of your mimir, or delete it entirely:

mimir status
mimir delete
