The Nimbus Notes topic morphed into discussing Clibu and as someone suggested a new Clibu specific topic should be started, so I have.

For those who don’t know anything about Clibu here is some information.

———————-
Clibu captures information, lets you edit it and easily find it again.

Some Key Features
- Hierarchical Tags and Multiple word tags.
- Rename, rearrange and delete Tags.
- Access your information from any PC anywhere.
- Content on all users PC’s is updated in real time and is always up to date. No need for Synchronize data across PC’s.
- Share and collaborate with others.
- Rich Editing capabilities.
- The Web Clipper collects Web page content in a snap.
- Email information to Clibu from your smart phone, tablet etc.
- Link articles together.
- Image Capture from the Web & Clipboard.
- Smart full text search.
- Clean design and simple to use.

Various comments were posted about having your data stored locally instead of in the cloud. My response to that was:

To cater for folks who want tight control I’m planning several Clibu variations.

a) The ability to have a complete local install of Clibu on your PC. This will include the database, server etc. With an option to still access it from any PC anywhere, if you want. This may still run in a Browser or be a Packaged App. So in essence you are back to having a Desktop app + the various benefits Clibu offers, such as real time updates, KB sharing & collaboration etc.

b) Similar to (a) except Clibu would be installed on a Server you control and own. In other words your own private Cloud.

c) Clibu as it is now, but with Offline capabilities. This would give you a local database that would be used when there was no Internet connection which would then synchronize with the real Clibu server, next time you were online. Unfortunately the world of Browser based databases is far from ideal, which constrains what we are able to do in this scenario. But it will no doubt continue to improve.

I hope these options satisfy your needs.


I look forward to ongoing discussions with Outliner Software members and getting your input into future development so that Clibu can best suit your needs.

Hi Neville,

just a few comments, questions, wishes.

Will it be possible to link to a Clibu item from an external application (will it have its own URL)?

I’d prefer to have the full time of the capture (full date and time stamp, like in Surfulater) recorded and displayed for each note.

It would be good if the basic bibliographic info of a note (title, original article URL, its own item URL, time and date created, tags) or selected notes or all notes could be easily exportable (through a button or context menu).

Will it be possible to attach a file to an item and attach links to local files?

Yes, every article will be accessible via. a URL.

All Dates in Clibu are stored as ISO 8601. The visual representation “Today at 9:27am” is simply a fancy layer on top. I can provide options for the way they are displayed.

There will be full Export capabilities. The most widely used data interchange format on the Web is JSON and this is what I plan to use.

>Will it be possible to attach a file to an item and attach links to local files?

Yes to attaching (and storing) files with articles. And yes to links to local files as long as Browser permissions allow this to work.

Actually I meant something else: an export of the meta data of a given note or a selection of notes, only including title, original article URL, its own item URL, time and date created, tags, but not the full text and images. Let’s call them the properties of an item.

A bit like what the “Create Link” Chrome extension can do for a webpage or the CoLT Firefox add-on (and those are highly customisable regarding the output).

How much is it going to cost? I don´t want to migrate my stuff to find later it’s too expensive.
