Indigrid is bare-bones simple, highly responsive and reliable. Its streamlined workflow allows for at-moment's-notice note-taking without a hitch, reducing the process to the only necessary parts: creating, editing and categorizing, - which helps the process tremendously.

So gorgeously intuitive and responsive while remaining minimal with no clutter. If you're looking for something to remain keyboard-bound (ergonomic) and you just need to record various lists that you made in your head without distraction, this is it.
Their design philosophy is a refreshing read too.

Indigrid helps me organize my thinking and keep track of my work and thought, every day. I have an easy time preserving and reusing the corpus I maintain with Indigrid in my other tools, such as EMACS, through the dead-simple text-file structure that it exports through ordinary copy-and-paste. The keyboard commands are simple and powerful -- I have a great deal of ease navigating the hierarchical structures, and viewing it in different ways. I love that it has 3 panes -- more would have been excessive, 2 is usually enough, but having that 3rd pane for when I need it gives the program breathing space. I have worked with no other outliner that works as simply and beautifully as this one. It is a joy to work with.

A carefully planned outliner app with shining bright light in the horizon.

  • THE best UI for an outliner out there, period. This guy actually puts some real thought behind his decisions and that shines through. These apps are rare. When you feel that each and every corner has been carefully carved out to be perfect little pieces of art by themselves.

  • Native as hell. Opens up in under 10 milliseconds ... damn, that's fast. Which also means binding it to a hotkey will make it go ON FIRE.

  • Currently a minus, but roadmap excplicitly tells that the app is on its path to overcome this limitation: Currently you're only working with a database format, thus, no separate textfile documents: BUT, this is being worked on and I have huge anticipations for when that day comes.

  • No multi-document support: Again, this is next in the roadmap according to the website. Fantastic!

(I'll try to remember to update my review here when these things are in the app.)

Best, lightweight, distraction-free app for making schemas, when you're writing book or planning a course/training.

It seems to be the closest thing to an offline open source workflowy. I love this type of outliner. Currently testing it out to see if it will work with my workflow but the first impressions are very good! kudos to the creator

Almost perfect, but even the author himself admits current version of Indigrid needs some improvement in performance. This review will be updated to 5 stars if the author resolved those issues.

What performance issues did you encounter? I had none, zero. But I jumped on board 8 months after you, so may have been fixed by now?

The Best Software that you will never use.

Indigrid is one of the software's that I really want to use but cant because its only one one platform.
It is basically a note taking software/brain storming software/Personal wiki, etc. It is anything you want it to be. Its simple and fast. Native application.

This is a pure desktop gem. Apps like Dynalist and Workflowy covers all platforms and therefore its much more appealing for me.

For me, apps like these are worth considering switching OS. Well, almost, at least :)
