I am constantly typing notes to myself over the course of the day. I use sticky notes because I don't want to interrupt myself and they are a quick way to compartmentalize ideas, thoughts, notes, to-do's etc. However, it is such a pain copying notes into the proper bin (document)!
Enter AutoNote. A tiny text editor built using the Tkinter module in Python.
And I think I will.
It makes it soooo much easier to take notes and collect them into big lists I can batch process. Perfect for aggregating to-do lists for tomorrow, next week, and in general taking notes on things you don't care about in the present moment and are trying to get out of your brain to reduce cognitive loading.
Anyway. Critical path features for usability
- Directory search (appending to files not in the local directory)
- Appending to .doc and .docx
- Exception when document is not found (currently creates a .txt file via Pythons 'open' default
- Directory Tagging - expansion of directory search to have a 'shortcut' also using hashtags
- Directory Autofill
- Exception/Error printing to AutoNote's label
- Binary Build File (no Python installation necessary)
- Expanded GUI (Add multiple notes)
As always, need to be careful about the feature creep and focus on the core 'Critical Path' development features.
This is going to be so awesome to be complete. Will save me loads of time.
