I’ve got literally decades worth of notes stored as Markdown files and for the last couple of years I was using the lovely nvatom package to quickly create and search through them. If you’ve ever used Notational Velocity, nvALT, or programs like Evernote then you’re familiar with the concept.
Sadly, the author of nvatom recently unpublished their package citing their lack of maintenance. I can’t overstate how much I used that package every single day.
Introducing Atom Notes!
- Provides the same Notational Velocity-like features embedded right in the Atom editor.
- Rewritten in ES6.
- Support for the upcoming Atom 1.19.0
- Lighter-weight implementation than nvatom.
- Removes dependence on deprecated atom-space-pen-views.
- Refactored to encourage collaboration.
- Uses fuzzaldrin-plus for better and faster autocompletion.
- Usability and stability improvements as well as bug fixes.
Obviously I’m in love with this package. I can’t count the number of times a coworker or friend has seen me using it an been blown away at how useful and simple it is. For me, this is my number one reason for continuing to use Atom above all other editors (but of course, there’s more than one reason I love Atom). So I’m announcing it now that I’ve released v1.0.0 after a week of hacking away on it. Please enjoy!
