A simple utility for writing notes without remembering where you put them.
Jot is a CLI utility that lets you write notes with out having to worry about where they’re stored. By default, all notes are stored in a git repo at ~/.jot in markdown and automatically pushed to a git repo.
$ sudo pip install jot-notes
$ # Edit today's note, ie: ~/.jot/YYYY-MM-DD.md $ jot $ # edit a note in a category with a specific name, ie: ~/.jot/foo/bar.md $ jot -c foo -n bar $ # disable git integration
Most of Jot’s configuration can be done on the CLI & with environment variables. Here are the relevant environment variables:
EDITOR - what text editor to use, defaults to nano
JOT_DIR - where to store jot’s notes, defaults to ~/.jot
JOT_EXT - file extension to use for notes, defaults to .md
JOT_NO_GIT - disable jot’s git integration
JOT_NO_GIT_PUSH - disable automatic git push
