Is there a Linux equivalent of the note-taking software Notational Velocity?

    Can you describe what features of that app you like? May 2 '11 at 21:37

    @MichaelMrozek It shows you all txt files or a folder (e.g. your docs) in a list, and you can easily search through them. There is no open/save. Every edit will save immediately.

NVpy is "a cross-platform simplenote-syncing note-taking app inspired by Notational Velocity."

Looking at screenshots NVpy looks like a closer match than TomBoy.

Here's a little write-up of NVpy on Lifehacker.

Though this guy didn't like it and tweaked gvim a bit instead.

Looking more, I found NVVim which "is a clone of the mac app Notational Velocity in vim. It is designed for fast plain-text note-taking and retrieval."

TomBoy is a note taking application for linux, which is probably the closest thing to Notational Velocity currently available.

    Or try Gnote if you don't want the overhead of Mono/.NET

As a vim user, I've been meaning to try out SoyWiki: http://danielchoi.com/software/soywiki.html

The Zim Desktop Wiki is a note taking software written in python. There are many extensions available for zim (LaTeX formulas or music scores...).

It is available in the official tree of most Linux distributions already.
