Subject description: Open file format?
 

Just got into Note-taking software, OneNote, Evernote etc. Predictably Microsoft OneNote uses a proprietary format. Is there an open file format and software that supports it?

I have no idea about OneNote and Evernote, but have you checked out things like Osmo, Treepad, and even Treesheets?

What file formats do Osmo, Treepad and Treesheets use?

Osmo is actually a "personal information manager" which includes a note-taking module. It stores its information in xml and I thought it was often included in Puppy these days.
Treesheets is a fantastic thing that is kind of like a cross between a spreadsheet and an outliner: "the ultimate replacement for spreadsheets, mind mappers, outliners, PIMs, text editors and small databases". It appears to use its own binary format, but since the software is open I guess you could call the file format open too.
Treepad is a proprietary outliner (with a freeware version) - I don't know how open its format is, but there is other software like Jreepad which is compatible with it.
I was just throwing in some different ideas - there seem to be hundreds of programs out for note taking or similar things like outlining, and I don't know what you actually want the software to do, or what you want to be able to do to the files.

One that I use a lot is KeepNote. It uses xml for its format and the data can be exported to html also. Its website is simply its name plus dot org.

Disciple, thanks for mentioning TreeSheets. I think that has a good place in my workload, too. Had not seen it before.

Yeah, Keepnote looks like the best competitor being cross platform and using XML. Osmo is Linux only, Treepad is commercial software. Treesheets is a Treepad clone.

Try it and see. If you had a quick look at the screenshot it might have tricked you into thinking it is just a slightly different ui for similar features like calendaring and what is essentially traditional word processing and whatnot. It doesn't have any of these features. All it has is a hierarchical grid: every file has one cell and you can nest other cells in it. And other cells in them, etc. It might be hard to appreciate without trying it...

I'm having fun with TreeSheets and learning a bit how to use it. The ability to shrink a cell to a minimum size or fold it completely is a fantastic feature. Another interesting program is Literary Machine (runs under WINE). But, it is quite complex and I finally gave up on using it. I spent more time thinking about how to enter data than I did about the data itself. TreeSheets lets you just 'throw the data in' and then you can shuffle it around later.

I recently posted a couple of really simple note-taking cgi scripts here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=63161
Works with busybox httpd. If you want new features feel free to add them for yourself, I only provide it as an example for the good of the public domain since everyone else seemed to over-complicate it.

Where does the acgi code archive the files to?

Just had a quick read about treesheets - it reminded me that I have often wanted some form of notetaker that would allow me to make a list (eg like a ToDo list) and have the ability to highlight one line (item), rightclick it, and say "send to top of list".

This would allow me to throw away all the "post-it" notes I have on the fridge door, add items to my computerised list so they don't get forgotten, then review it daily and send critical items up to the top of the list as required.

As written it saves them in the cgi-bin directory, but it can be modified.
