Description:

Ever since I discovered the KDE application Basket I have been looking for a similar software working on both Windows and Linux.

I found none.

So, here it is. A cross platform note-taking software built only using Qt. Inspired mainly by KDE Basket and Microsoft OneNote rewritten for Qt, thus the name Basqet, and focusing on the things I my self need.

The idea is to use baskets to put, not eggs, but notes and ideas (text, pictures, HTML-links etc), as well as tagged data in list-form with filters etc. It shall be possible to use arrows to connect notes, and possibly to add symbols like boxes, squares, UML etc.

Notes and data is labeled the same way as labels work here at Google-Code, and some labels might imply a little symbol/icon on the item or a change in font, text-, or background color.

My vision is that a user shall be able to create new forms using Qt Creator and perform basic data validation and forms logic using Qt Java Scripts. I also have a vision to make it a client server software for real time collaboration around a white-board with motes.

We'll see how far we will get.

Features:
[li]The main feature allows a user to collect text-notes on a blank huge note page. [/li]
[li]Note-pages are organized in a tree, where each note page can have an arbitrary number of sub-pages. [/li]
[li] The text in the text-notes can be formated using rich text formatting. [/li]
[li]A text-note can be split in to a header-part and a body-part. There is a splitter on mid top to drag down. [/li]
[li]Text-notes can be resized and moved on a page.[/li]
[li]Backups are taken first thing each day (or when backup area is available). [/li]
[li]In the settings dialog one can change where notes and backups are stored, and how many backups to keep. [/li]
[li]Icons can be used to denote labels on notes. [/li]
[li]A note page can be exported to an HTML or Open Doc file. [/li]
[li]Undo/Redo[/li]

I have occasionally, but repeatedly, googled for an app like this under Windows since that is what I have to use at work.

And today there was finally a real result. Thank you for being the one to finally start this. True, there is room for improvement, but the basics are there, and I will definitely be putting it through its paces.

Good Job!

Hi, great idea, I'm looking for the same for a long time.

Will you provide builds for Mac OS X and source files for linux too?

Hi!

Sources are available on the project site (http://code.google.com/p/basqet/) and are tested on Linux (I develop on Linux) and Windows (I use it daily in windows XP at work). Build-instructions are on the wiki.

I will publish a Linux tar-file shortly (this weekend I hope). For debian-packages and RPMs I need help.

I have no access to MacOS and really need some help with testing, building and making an installer.
