A GUI application to keep your notes in a directed graph.
A note has a short title/keyword and a text content (text means ascii-like). Notes can be related to other notes via links (which are edges of the graph).
Notiznetz is useful for
unfortunately that is currently not installable by pip in python2.7. So you need to install it via OS-mechanisms or compile it yourself. On Debian8 (jessie) installation of PyQt5 is done with:
apt-get install python-pyqt5
The install-process of notiznetz will check for availability of PyQt5 and aborts before installing when PyQT5 is not available.
for serializing your notes into a file:
apt-get install python-jsonpickle
tools for installing python-packages:
apt-get install python-setuptools python-pip
the relevant ports are:
devel/qt5 devel/py-qt5 devel/py-jsonpickle devel/py-pip devel/py-setuptools
if you downloaded the distribution-tar extract the archive and:
sudo python setup.py install
on archlinux you will need the command:
sudo python2 setup.py install
on FreeBSD 12 you will need the command:
python2.7 ./setup.py install
they should check for dependencies, install them automatically if needed and install a python-package named notiznetz
open "Help-Menu -> User-documentation", open the content of the card "key-shortcuts" by doubleclicking in its headline and read it.
The command named nzz is a short python-script, you can have a look at it.
$ nzz [your-filename.nzz]
where your-filename is the name of a notes-file. If your-filename is ommitted the Program opens with an empty card-space and gives the option to save into a file.
To use in python:
>>> import sys >>> from notiznetz import NotizNetzApplication >>> nzz = NotizNetzApplication() >>> if len(sys.argv) == 2: >>> nzz.loadfile(sys.argv) >>> nzz()
This will run a Qt5 GUI-Application where you can create, link and arrange your notes.
The primary documentation-format is in notes-files (*.nzz). The files are located in <installation-dir>/doc/*.nzz
to access the documentation start from the commandline:
and use "User-Documentation" from the Help-Menu.
Doubleclick on a cards headline/title opens the text-content of the card.
User-Documentation contains a card named "key-shortcuts" whose contents tell you how to use the application. The text is arranged in a somehow tutorial-like way. If you read and try out the shortcuts sequentially it will give you all the operational information you need to use the application.
