gjots is an open source graphical software designed especially to marshal and organize text notes in a convenient and hierarchical way.

gjots2 is a simple jotter application for GTK/GNOME, designed to allow users to easily organize their jottings into a tree structure, adding thoughts and miscellany as you go.

The application can be used for jottings, notes, recipes, PINs, passwords, articles, web pages, manuals, as well as bits and pieces. For passwords, it uses strong encryption.

Being similar to the KJots software of the KDE desktop environment, gjots can also be used to "mind-map" larger compositions.

  • Added gjots2org, org2gjots and ability to open .org files
