OutWiker

#1 Post by I am Baas » Sat Mar 14, 2015 3:00 am

OutWiker is designed to store notes in a tree. Such programs are called "outliner", personal wiki, or tree-like editors. OutWiker's main difference from the other similar programs is keeping the tree of notes in the form of directories on disk, and encouraging changing the base by external sources and programs.

Damn. An open source (GPL) nested text manager that supports nested bullets and complex formatting. The formatting bit is my big ask on Cherrytree.

Thanks for checking.

Edit: there's even a 7z distro. Sigh.

Dang, Baas, those mega-screenies really rough up the forum layout on my end -- imgur.com is easy remedy, you should try this http://i.imgur.com/E6NUt3L.png?1... :shock:

Image Zoom does wonders if you use FF. If not... why? :)

To make OutWiker portable just create a file "outwiker.ini" in the program folder.

I've been testing out this program and still trying to wrap my head around it: I love the fact that it uses MediaWiki formatting, which I'm reasonably familiar with, but the swap between MediaWiki and actual document is strange. I'm not sure if I want a split screen view or a WYSIWYG editor that has an available wiki/html backend. Either way, you can drag and drop any files into the attachments box and I see a LOT of possibilities there. It saves everything in a very clear way so there's no weird containment structure.

Either way, it's a really cool idea and very different from CherryTree.

This really belongs in the database as an alternative to WikidPad.

While WikidPad has the advantage of quick and easy WikiWord creation, it lacks complex formatting, or at least the easy creation of it. I think I'll do it sometime this week.

There has been no mention of OutWiker's stealth status. Has anyone tested that?
