This is a fish shell script for taking notes that serves all of my needs and makes me inordinately happy. It supports searching for notes with fzf, archiving notes to a directory, and inserts date headers the first time a note is edited on a given day.
My lil’ script is heavily inspired by my older, good-but-not-great notes script and by browsing the features of fancier note taking tools like jrnl, rhysd’s notes, terminal velocity, and pimterry’s notes.

Chess Patch Notes

The history of chess rule changes presented as if they were patch notes from a Blizzard game like Overwatch. Seems fitting with the recent AlphaZero work exploring chess variants and the joining of forces between the gaming and chess streamer communities. Some background here.

Notes To Self

Just a simple app to store and organize notes. Still very beta. Uses the browser's localStorage or google drive for note storage so you don't have to sign up for anything, or remember another username/password. If you have a minute, take a look, and let me know if you find anything that didn't work like you'd expect it to, of it you have ideas about how to make it more useful.

TakeNote: An Exploration of Notetaking in Harvard University Collections

TakeNote is a virtual exhibition of historical notes--and note-like things--found in the collections of 13 Harvard University libraries, curated by leading scholars in the history of the book, and sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. The exhibition itself--available in a grid or sortable view--features downloadable high-resolution images, commenting, and tagging. There is also a selection of interpretive itineraries through the exhibit, written by experts in the field (excepting myself), and a bibliography of links and sources related to notetaking. The project is linked to the Take Note Conference, due to take place at Radcliffe (in Cambridge, Mass.) on Nov. 1st and 2nd. [more inside]

Marginalia. Keep a journal, make notes, and brainstorm using Markdown

Marginalia is where I've been living for the past six months. It's a simple app for keeping notes and journals with one interesting twist: creating and appending to notes via email. If I have a random thought or idea on the go, I can just send an email to Marginalia and it'll automatically create a note. [more inside]

Speed Notes - ubiquitous plain-text notetaking with a nonconformist interface

I use Notational Velocity on my laptop to keep plain text notes and store them in Dropbox. I am really attached to its single-text-field interface, and was frustrated that there wasn't a close analogue on the iOS App Store — so I wrote one.
