The tool for creating notes

Project description

Make Notes with CLI (zero dependence)

I created this tool for my own purposes, but I will be glad if you’ll use it too.

I love commandline tools like howdoi , they are really awesome. Sometimes it is necessary to note something simple and useful: commands like tar zxvf or any password. That would be great, if you could make a note simple and fast, and then get it anywhere. I hope, you will enjoy this tool!


  • :octocat: Store data in your gists, so you need GitHub account. By default all notes stored at private gist.
  • :earth_americas: Share your notes with others.
  • :books: Use notebooks to organize your notes.
  • :closed_lock_with_key: Secure. You can encrypt your notes by your own key.
  • :package: Minimal dependence and size (about 7 kb), all you need is python.
  • :snake: Support python 2.6, 2.7, 3.4 and upper (for 2.6 you need to install argparse package).
  • :rocket: Easy to install (curl –silent –show-error –retry 5 | sudo sh).
  • :beginner: Easy to use.
  • >_ CLI - that’s awesome. Work at all platforms (I hope).

How it works
