I’m Louis, the creator of Klevernotes.
For those who don’t know Klevernotes :
KleverNotes is a note taking and management application for your mobile and desktop devices. It uses markdown and allow you to preview your content.
It’s been roughly 9 month since I made my first post about it and 7 month since the last update. Now that things have settled down for me and I’ve transition from reddit to here, I thought that it might be cool to give some news !
On the last update I was still working alone on my personnal repo. However quickly after my post, Carl Schwan helped me integrate the KDE incubator program and has reviewed my code/answered my questions since then.
I thank him very much for that !
Btw : lots of respect for him, I’m quite ennoying with questions lol !
- Better image support
- Better table support
- Some css tweaks
- Various bugs fixes
Here’s a list more or less in order :
- adding todos (might need some rework)
- various UI tweaks
- sidebar treeview as been reworked (kirigami Addons) + search for notes
- possibility to make quick drawing and embed them as images
- adding link to the toolbar (they’re now clickable in the preview)
- various bug fixing
- possibility to print your note to pdf
- 4 news default css style for the preview + possibility to create your own css style (need some documentation)
- settings page, as well as the various dialogs, has been ported to FormCard style
- shortcut for all actions (possibility to customize them will come)
- a markdown cheat-sheet
- moving from marked.js to an equivalent written in C++ (this will make life much more easier for futur features implementation)
As I said, the new C++ parser make life much easier for new feature, I’m now working on a “note linking” feature, similar to Obsidian (the map won’t be included with this)
On the side, I’m starting to make some research to embed emoji, and enable code highlight.
I know that the concept is similar to marknote, I don’t know who was first and I don’t care. Both project have a similar base idea but very different approach to it. I won’t list all the differences and will let you discover them if you want.
Thanks for reading me !
I’m open to any discussion/feedback
