I’ve been using Tomboy for a long time now, and I love it. It’s an extremely powerful note-taking application, with a very well thought out interface and a useful search capacity.
However, after using Voodoopad on the mac, I slowly realized that I needed something more focused on the editing of long documents : instead of each note having its own window, possibly scattered all around the screen, navigate from one note to the other in the same window (with browser-like “back” and “forward” commands). Don’t get me wrong : I will always use Tomboy for taking small notes and quick lists – I just wanted another app for another purpose. I tried out instiki, but the whole server thing is not really convenient.
I’m going to try it out during the next days, but it looks like it’s going to fill the gap nicely. My only gripe so far : Why is it a gnome panel applet instead of a full-blown application ? I guess it’s for historical reasons – some things in the interface remind me of Webnotes, a previous C# gnome frontend to didiwiki, which showed promise but stopped developing some time ago…
update : The development version even has categories (and sub-sub categories if you want) so you can organize your wiki pages in neat folders ! This is perfect.
