I was looking for an agil desktop open fast RTF editor for quick notes to use as a weekly/montly journal to query
and the best choicez I fount out were Tomboy a CherryTree, the first one seems to integrates better with desktop,
the second one, allow us to take more complete and large notes...

So, what do you think, any recommendation or think to know about?..To me, both options seems same valid..I thing I will test CherryTree, Ive never used it before :o

CherryTree!!
It has a few issues but is rich. It makes me want OLE (object link and embed).

Only think, I dont like, we can only use four font sizes.. h1, h2, h3 and s ..
I was for a while looking for the increase/decrease button's font size :shock: ..It shoud have come with two buttons like in tomboy

I finally got my cherry personalization, Im using Segoe Print font :)

I made a script for launching and backup .. I usually restore home btrfs subvolume, and cant keep base data within it or lose all data.

journal.sh
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#
cherrypath="/home/user/snap/cherrytree"
cherrycopy="/home/user/LINUXDEBS/config/cherrysnap/cherrytree"
cherrybbdd="/home/user/LINUXDEBS/config/cherrysnap/cherryBBDD"

if [ ! -z $(pgrep -f  bin/cherrytree) ]
then
    exit
fi
### Para SNAP cherry
mkdir -p "$cherrycopy" "$cherrybbdd"
find "$cherrypath/current/" -maxdepth 1 -type f -name "*.ctb*" -exec mv -v "{}"  "$cherrybbdd/" \;
find "$cherrybbdd/" -maxdepth 1 -type f -name "*.ctb*" -exec ln -snf "{}" "$cherrypath/current/" \;
rsync -av --delete "$cherrypath/" "$cherrycopy/"

snap run cherrytree &

Try installing the breeze-gtk-theme package, that should style GTK applications to match your Plasma Breeze theme. You may have to set the theme manually in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 & ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini (or use lxappearance to set it).

If you're going to use bash then you should use [[ instead of [ but your script doesn't need either, the command itself can be used as a test:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
#
cherrypath="${HOME}/snap/cherrytree"
cherrycopy="${HOME}/LINUXDEBS/config/cherrysnap/cherrytree"
cherrybbdd="${HOME}/LINUXDEBS/config/cherrysnap/cherryBBDD"

if pgrep -f  bin/cherrytree
then
   exit
fi
### Para SNAP cherry
mkdir -p "$cherrycopy" "$cherrybbdd"
find "$cherrypath/current/" -maxdepth 1 -type f -name "*.ctb*" -exec mv -v "{}"  "$cherrybbdd/" \;
find "$cherrybbdd/" -maxdepth 1 -type f -name "*.ctb*" -exec ln -snf "{}" "$cherrypath/current/" \;
rsync -av --delete "$cherrypath/" "$cherrycopy/"

As you can see, it doesn't need buggy, bloated bash either. POSIX sh ftw!

ok, thanks :o

by the way, cherry 0.39 do install in stretch, so I installed (It opens up faster than snap or flatpak)
