t is an minimalistic tool to take notes.
Instead of using a web editor or some native app that under the hood is a web page, or even a fully bloated app to take your notes and store it on someone elses server with their proprietary software and APIs we rather choose to use something way more simple, a combination of two very well documented, free and trusted tools: git and markdown.
t is designed to be completely simple and out of your way. Especially
when taking notes, sometimes all you want is somewhere to drop a bunch
When writing a note,
t will open your
EDITOR (we recommend vim). As
soon that you write all you need and quit the app,
t will push your
note to the configured git server. That's it.
t has a small set of commands:
l will list your notes indexed by it's modification date,
while piping to the default
PAGER on your system (usually
c will create a new note using the current date. You can supply
a title in quoted strings
e will reopen the note on your
EDITOR, by default it
will edit the last one. You can supply the index of the note you want to edit.
s will pipe the note to glow
You can check the man page
man t if you need any help.
For now, you can only install by cloning this repository and running the installation script.
So open your favorite terminal and fire these commands:
git clone https://git.sr.ht/~porcellis/t
make && sudo make install
If you have any interest in packaging this software to your distro of choice, please let me know, so I can update the steps here.
Note: By now, the
show commands depends on
glow to be installed.
The plain, good and old git-way of contributing.
The only dependency is
go, which you can install trough your package
manager (apk on Alpine, pacman on Arch, apt on Debian-based distros
etc). After that, you can use
make get to fetch all dependencies and

There's a lot of things I want to implement on
t, here is some of them:
t list | less -r)
t initwould create the notes repository, set a remote, etc).
