Cjots is a console note taker program written in Perl for Linux using Perl's Curses library. It was inspired by KDE's Kjots. Cjots was written to fill the needs of those people who like the functonality of jotter programs like Kjots, but need don't use KDE, or spend most of their time in a terminal and therefore need a console program. Cjots is also compatible with the Kjots file format so files can be shared between the two applications.

The intuitive and quick-to-use interface and auto-save functionality of Cjots makes it ideal for working with just about any kind of textual information. How many times have you simply wanted to store, add to, or find a piece of information and been annoyed by save / load file dialogs and 'are you sure you want to ...?' messages?. Cjots takes that hassle out of your life.

Cjots also supports interaction with the command line and has a simple plugin framework which greatly increases its possible uses and also can export pages or books to plain text or HTML.

You can check out the Cjots Online Documentation for further information (which was written in Cjots)

Cjots is written in Perl and uses Perl's Curses library.
Perl (Perl 5) can be found almost anywhere.
