TreeNote (distinct from “TreeNotes”): “An intuitive outliner for personal knowledge and task management.


(Windows only for now, although there is mention of compiling from source for other platforms.)

I have note tested yet, but it looks interesting. German readers might want to check out the link to the developer’s thesis, “Wissens- und Selbstmanagement”

Should be, “I have *not* tested yet”—- sorry!

Installing on a Mac from source is much easier than previously described on the Treenote webpage: http://www.treenote.de/installation/
This requires a working installation of homebrew, the package manager for OS X
Steps 2,3 and 4 are commands in the Terminal.

1) clone or download the git repository
2) brew install pyqt5
this step will install python3 and most other dependencies automatically
3) This step is still missing from the webpage:
brew install couchdb
If you do not execute this command, you cannot run TreeNote on your Mac.

4) pip3 install couchdb requests

optional 5) write a shell script, save it somewhere in your systems path and make it executable. Mine looks like this
python3 ~/Documents/TreeNote/treenote.py
and it is saved using the *.command extension, so it will run (rather than be opened in a text editor) when clicked.

I have only briefly dabbled with it so far but it should be of interest to some people on this forum.

Addendum to the above post:

You need to run Couchdb once before it can be invoked by the script apparently.
So add step 3a (ahem) and type this in the terminal:

That should do it, sorry for the oversight.
