Nottingham was an early clone of Notational Velocity (I think it might have preceded NVAlt).  After a number of years in limbo, the app is back in development and Nottingham 3 is now released.


It’s a pretty basic markdown editor.  Interesting to recall how Notational Velocity and its clones was the big thing in markdown not too many years ago.

Thanks for the heads up.

A couple of other notes: When you download the app, it is a two week free trial version. After that you have to pay $15.

I like the idea of creating wiki-style linking.

The wikilinks using [[this syntax]] dates back to Notational Velocity, which is still available though not updated since it went open source in 2011:


Nottingham, nvAlt and others came later.  A successor to nvAlt (“BitWriter” was it’s recent name) has been vaporware for a very long time—one of the most popular never-released apps!

Worth noting that Bear also supports this wiki linking syntax, in addition to its own internal linking system (each note has its own inbuilt ID).

I’ve also just discovered quite a nice little personal wiki called, aha, Kiwi. It’s an iOS app, but uses Dropbox to synchronise with other platforms. Its only failing is a lack of search function - otherwise it’s rather charming.

Bear is, however, a far more sophisticated environment for this kind of personal wiki, not least because it also has tagging.

Sorry, I should have explicitly stated that yes, Kiwi also supports this [[wiki linking]] syntax.
