what software does this? Easy To Note/Write/Type/Outline/See 5 basic requirements inside (as of 2017)


what software does this that you've used?

minimal requirements

* can make bullet points easy like if you type '* [space]' then it would make a bullet point
* what i type into the software is responsive to the size of the window (going to keep the window/app like a 'sidebar')
* is easy to hide/expand all info under a higher-level bullet point
* can bold like a regular word doc so you can see the bold easily, so no markdown (auto-bold the first line/bullet point is a plus)
& minimal UI (prefer completely clean UI)

site, app, anything, only the above matters, everything else is irrelevant

Non-wiki software to use Markdown:

https://github.com/maciakl/MarkdownJournal

Saves/Displays from Dropbox currently. Could be changed to support any path though, with some code change.

so it can't be markdown

maybe you have to write this software that does exactly what you want
[usually at this point they come up with something that meets their requirement, if only to prove me wrong.]

Yeah, free software sucks, huh?
Folding bulleted lists? That IS Shiny
No wiki "as is" does that.

what do you mean by 'shiny'

for the troll comment, "[usually at this point they come up with something that meets their requirement, if only to prove me wrong.]" -- maybe it's better to be not wrong in the first place

anyone on this site take notes?

anyone know a better place on the entire Web to ask?

any OS, macos, win10, chromeos, doesnt matter

  • rich text (foreground color, background color, bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, small, h1, h2, h3, subscript, superscript, monospace)
  • syntax highlighting supporting several programming languages
  • images handling: insertion in the text, edit (resize/rotate), save as png file
  • multi-level lists handling (bulleted, numbered, to-do and switch between them, multiline with shift+enter)

CherryTree looks promising.

since the replies (from only those that have been helpful like habitual, clearly) were trying to be helpful

i thought i give you the answer (for your 'extra' knowledge):

there's an entire category call 'outliners'

there's a lot to go through so not sure what's the best at the moment, but quick examples are:

* dynalist
* checkvist

historical examples are workflowry, etc.

--

btw i didn't actually change the bare minimal needs at all

--

i should also mention (for you 'extra' knowledge) that what im looking for is exceptionally basic, it's 2017


there are amazing things out there, so what im looking for is pretty 'ancient'

--

also onenote that's been here for a very very long time -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_OneNote

already does this

doesn't really meet #5 though

The default mediawiki in Fedora supports folding including bullet lists, no extensions needed.
