Tomboy

Open Source by Alex Graveley |

Have you ever felt the frustration at not being able to locate a website you wanted to check out, or find an email you found interesting, or remember an idea about the direction of the political landscape in post-industrial Australia? Or are you one of those desperate souls with home-made, buggy, or not-quite-perfect notes systems? Time for Tomboy. We bet you'll be surprised at how well a little application can make life less cluttered and run more smoothly.

There is no "app" or "program" for Tomboy. You have to build it yourself, using XCode (make sure you download the right version), MacPorts (make sure you download the right version), "Git" (yeah, introduce yourself to that little gem).

Tomboy is supposed to be a list manager. All this work? For the ability to WRITE LISTS? I have spent hours screwing around with this Tomboy project, and it still did not build.

STOP! Do not give me stupid advice about how I can spend even more of my time to build this thing successfully. I believe that the software should work for me, and I should not have to work for the software. Tomboy is a waste of time for 99.9% of computer users.

Mac version abandoned

Negative Comment by edrazeba about Tomboy Nov 2012

The Mac version has not been kept up to date with development, lagging a good year and a half behind and preceding both 10.7 and 10.8.

So, don't bother.

Recently got Tomboy when I installed Ubuntu on an old laptop. Really impressed as a quick syncing notation system. Works cross platform, and best of all FREE! Just missing a smartphone app, and it'd be perfect.

Tomboy isn't a credible alternative to Evernote because it doesn't offer tagging. Tagging was considered by Tomboy developers a few years ago, and then rejected in favour of notebooks. With tags, Tomboy would be my favourite app. Without tags, it's difficult to organise notes. Notebooks are not nearly as useful as tags.

Tomboy was one of the most missed applications when I moved from Linux to Mac. It's good to see that it is now available to both Mac and Windows!
