mote

A script to facilitate random note-taking in the terminal

Written in: Bash

Quickly jotting down a few notes in their preferred text editor is, in itself,
probably a non-issue for most computer users. That said, having to decide on
where to save them and making sure they don't get lost in the vast expanses of
a multi-gigabyte home directory filled with tens of thousands of files can
sometimes make for an uninvited challenge.

`mote` aims to get these problems out of the way by

  a) storing notes in a pre-defined location in chronological order

`mote` is, however, not intended to be useful for structured note-taking. It is,
in essence, just a notepad with date stamps to facilitate immediate,
distraction-free “mind-to-file” action, the results of which are to be recovered
later and mostly ordered and edited elsewhere.
