Quick and easy Command-line tool for taking notes


  1. Download the executable for your Operating System at note/releases;
  2. Rename the executable to note;
  3. Place the executable in a directory loaded by the system (about these directories);
  4. Give it permission to be executable (only if you are using Mac OS or Linux).

Or, if you are using a Mac OS or Linux, you can just execute the commands described at the note/releases.


The default configuration is:

editor: vim
notePath: ~/Notes

You can create a .noteconfig.yml (or json, or toml) in your home directory to o override these configurations. If you create a configuration file in a specific directory, it will take priority over the default and the configuration in the home directory. As well the EDITOR and NOTE_PATH environment variables has priority over these configuration files.


note [just type a text] [or command] [with command options]

Note is very easy and simple to use. Start by typing note command and continue describing what you want to take as note:

note there is no place like home

If using special character, just use quotes or escape the character:

note "there's no place like home"
note there\'s no place like home

It will create a file named 0 - there's no place like home at the notePath. In case of you need a text editor you can just type note without any argument. It will open the EDITOR defined as environment variable or the configured one.


To define a title, just use the flag option --title (or -t). If no title is informed, note will take some words from the first line as it. All titles start with a number (integer) increasing by one from the last note for better identification.

Other commands

Show a note content. It will search for a note using the given arguments executing a fuzzy search:

note show like home

If it's your first note, you can surely show it by typing:

note show 0

The search is case insensitive, use the flag option --case-sensitive / -s if you want to match the case.


Edit a note content. Like the show command, will use the given arguments to search for a note but will open it content in your text editor.

note edit 0
note e 0
Edit Note's title

Edit the title of a note. It's the edit command with --title / -t flag option. So you can rename a note title:

note edit --title renamed 0
note edit -t renamed 0

Delete a note. Like show and edit, but delete a note. It will ask for confirmation if not given the flag option --yes / -y.

note delete 0
note del 0
note d 0
note rm 0

List notes. Has no arguments. Simply list the notes at the notePath.
