Pepys

Pepys - a wiki-like personal notebook

Review

I'm sure many of you might understand how I would be interested in a small program that allows me to take notes while working in the Wiki environment.

 

I happened across this application while doing a Yahoo search of the keywords freeware and wiki. To make a long story short, I love this little program called Pepys. It's much like the regular Windows Notepad, except that you can create new pages on the fly using WikiWords and you never have to worry about saving pages. So, what's left to worry about while using Pepys? Nothing, you just happily type away while you are organizing your thoughts. It's basically a hyperlinked diary. Here at pbwiki (this web host) I have to use a special formatting language to format the text. When you use Pepys, you don't have to learn anything new. It's all in a toolbar so you can select the text and then apply the format you want.

 

At this point in Pepys development, there are lots of features missing that I'd love to see, but the program is very useful as it stands.

Pepys is a powerful hypertext enabled notebook designed for individuals and small workgroups. It works in a similar way to a WikiWikiWeb. However, unlike a WikiWikiWeb, Pepys does not require a web server or any kind of administrative access. Simply download and run the installer and start using Pepys to organise your thoughts and keep notes.
