Easy Sticky Note Widgets

Project description


Stickynotes for your desktop easily from the command line! Built using PySimpleGUI


How does it work?

Pystickynote creates a small QT window for you to jot your ideas down and then display them later on all with a command line tool. On top of that, the note itself is fully customizable allowing you to change colors, alpha, and borders.


pip3 install pystickynote

Running It

<pystickynote/pysn> create <name_of_note> # Displays stickynote window

<pystickynote/pysn> open <name_of_note> # Displays old stickynote

<pystickynote/pysn> delete <name_of_note> # Deletes stickynote

<pystickynote/pysn> list # Displays all notes


Update 1.5.1:

  • Added box_height and box_width values to config

Update 1.5:

  • Added new entry point: pysn

  • Added delete function thanks to @synackray

  • Fixed error with mouse_offset (possibly still buggy)

  • New local version of PySimpleGUIQt for that ^


Config files and notes can be found in ~/.config/pystickynote/. Inside this folder you will find pysn.conf and notes.json.

You can also find the default config and notes file in this repository.

The config file looks something like this:

background_color = #454545
text_color = #fafafa
alpha = 0.8
border_width = 0
font_size = 10
title_size = 8

background_color = the background hex color for the note

text_color = the text color for the note

alpha = the note window's alpha

border_width = border around input box and buttons

font_size = font size for text

title_size = font size for title
