minipad2: notekeeper/calculator/memo/launcher...

#1 Post by tryforsure » Sun Feb 10, 2008 12:48 pm

minipad2 is a tiny, multi-page style windows program which integrates all the useful functions including text editor, calculator, reminder, dictionary, text template & clipboard-enhancement . All the contents saved in a single text file. It automatically restores the last state when re-opened. It can be set as start with windows and minimize to the system tray with very few memory take-up.

minipad2 is a single-exe green software. It can be directly used when unzipped to a random directory without installation. It adds no key to the system registry, except for the "Run" key when set as start with windows.

This little piece of software is AMAZING! It's the notes/clipboard/calc/dictionary/reminder app I didn't know I was looking for. Nothing I've seen has combined all of those functions so well, with hotkeys, portability, plain-text storage, backups, and a great UI - all while taking up just 6 MB of RAM!

One limitation is that the English "dictionaries" offered on the program's download page are very small. The .dic files are just tab-separated text files:

@"DictionaryTitle"
"word1" "definition1"
"word2" "definition2"
etc...

Does anyone know where to get a full English-English dictionary in a text file like that? Aspell's dictionary is just a wordlist for spellchecking, and when I search Google just about all I can find are translating dictionaries. Yadabyte Dictionary, WordWeb, StarDict, and TheSage all use closed/binary file formats. Project Gutenberg's is gigantic - with etymolgy, examples, and long definitions.

Hmmm, not been added to the database. Strange, it is portable!

minipad2 is a tiny program which integrates many useful functions including notepad, calculator, reminder, dictionary, launcher, address list, text template & clipboard-enhancement, with very low system-requirement and memory take-up. All the contents are automatically saved while minimized or closed, and when re-opened the last state will be restored.

The program can be freely switched between two styles: multi-page style and treeview style. When no longer used, it can be minimized to the system-tray, or hide outside of the desktop.

The program provides very flexible configurations. Besides the basic notepad function, all the other extended functions (calculator, reminder...) are like plug-ins which can be freely enabled or disabled in the options.

minipad2 is a single-exe green software. It can be directly used when unzipped to any directory without installation. It adds no key to the system registry, except for the "Run" key when set as start with windows.

The current version of minipad2 is 3.1.3,updated in July. 24th, 2009.

FTR, Minipad2 is in the database: http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1500 (alas, development abandoned, official site gone).

@Mod: shouldn't http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... php?t=5091 and http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... php?t=5165 be merged here? :|

Good catch but I'll leave the update thread separate. I sometimes combine them for older programs or when the conversation goes into items about the program itself, but the minipad2 update thread is pretty focused on versioning.
