I am running Linux Mint 18.3 and am looking for an equivalent of TagSpaces for Linux (Yes, I know TagSpaces runs on Linux, too).

Ideally, I am looking for something quite similar to TaskWarrior, but for notation - that being:

  1. Have a tag function, to allow categorization;
  2. Have a filter view, or a method to search for simple tags;

Rather basic, right?

I would use Google Keep if it was an offline client (hate working out of a web browser, it's not for me) and had a better filter mechanic (although, their search works well) - however I am investigating this.

Tools like Evernote however as far as I am aware, these do not run native on Linux- plus, they want to charge me (hosting is not necessary, local is fine).

    I almost feel bad for upvoting your reputation score of exactly 1000! Anyway, does it matter whether it's a GUI application to e.g. paste pictures?

    Would something like TiddlyWiki work for you? It is browser based but is totally offline Feb 6, 2018 at 0:42
  • @Luc CLI works perfectly fine - most notes currently are used via nano.

  • @DuarteFarrajotaRamos I will look at this when possible. If it meets requirements please make it an answer; even if I personally do not use it, someone else may benefit.

TiddlyWiki has great tagging abilities and builtin search functionality.

Besides basic note taking it acts as a small application of sorts, allowing for scripting and extending its capabilities.

It is browser based but can run totally offline locally, from a single file or from a Node.js server instance if desired.
