@freemo It really complex for what I want. I don't need a web service, and am not really looking to share my notes. I'll add the ability to export stuff as a PDF, I think. What I really need is a lightweight way to store project notes by date and project, where I can't change the notes once they've been written. Ultimately, I'd like to have them timestamped by a trusted authority and sealed with a cert. Also, it'd be nice if my program could interpret some standard HTML and SVG markup.
I'm not a scientist; I don't run experiments or need to write papers. I'm an engineer, whose razer-sharp memory is starting to go to crap. I'm hoping I can write something small enough to be moderately portable, that won't drive me crazy. I'm so bad at keeping notes.
@Lwasserman Its just a text editor. The only tricky part is configuringit if you want something custom.
I use spacemacs on top of emacs personally and it makes the expiernce pretty effortless IMO
@Lwasserman If you really want to, go for it. Seems like a lot of work for something that doesnt sound like it would do anything too special.
Export to pdf (and other formats), a literate programming environment with org mode / Babel which supports many popular programming languages, and org-roam (https://www.orgroam.com/) for note taking including daily notes that you can cross reference with agendas and todos and all the other org features.
The simplest literate programming environment I’ve used is Jupyter notebooks. The web server part is simply a way to serve a document user interface, and it is very simple to run locally. There are a number of languages supported. Probably the next easiest is matlab, but that is more specialized.
