Notee - A Minimal Application for Notes

I love to code Minimal Applications, After the Minimal todo list today i am introducing you with Notee. Notee is a Minimal web application written in JavaScript, that provides you the facility to keep notes. There is no menu-bar OR Tool-bar, all features work simple keyboard shortcuts. It keeps your notes stored at local.


I believe in Unix philosophy that is "Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface." Notee follow it.

How it is Minimal?

As i told you at starting, Notee has all features with some keyboard shortcuts. you can -

  1. Add or Edit notes simply by Double-Clicking the Notes,
  2. Save notes as you press 'Tab',
  3. Change the color by Scrolling mouse wheel,
  4. Change Font size by Ctrl+Scroll,
  5. Store notes at your local so no need to login or register,
  6. Delete note and start over simply pressing 'Del'.

Notee use a in place editing system with simple JavaScript code, you can simply edit notes  by Double clicking. Notes are saved in the browser cookies as you finish editing, so no need to click save button etc.

As you all know we can generate random colors with JavaScript, so scrolling mouse wheel can change the color of text. Cookies will be cleared on 'Tab' press and you can start over.


Code is on github/motyar/notee


you can use the application working here.

Perfection is not when there is nothing to add, but when there is nothing to take away.
