Had been looking for a very simple notes app on Linux for a while and just discovered FromScratch via GNOME Software. Love it!



@aral I bounce around among note systems a lot (which causes so much workflow disruption!) but I've been returning to Zim for awhile.

Zim's not minimal but it has some attributes I value highly:

+tight capture/view feedback loop (via wysiwyg) vs something like MD and a static site compiler
+SingleActiveWindow (avoids tab proliferation)
+ Export to HTML (eg edrex-notes.pdxhub.org/zim/pub)
+GTK3 now, so I can use it with Broadway on my phone etc (theoretically, just now testing)
+Doesn't encourage me to write code for personal tasks, which can quickly turn into a recursive deadlock
