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 create <name_of_note> # Displays stickynote window

pystickynote open <name_of_note> # Displays old stickynote


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