* 2008-12-14 - First public alphaAuthor Chris Wuestefeld:

At the surface, it's Yet Another Diary/Journal Application. But as I've complained here, as recently as last month, a fundamental problem with all Diary software I've found is that the data is locked into a proprietary datastore and format. This is absolutely antithetical to the purpose of a diary: long-term tracking of thoughts. At some point in the future, our current applications and the format in which they store the data will be obsolete; it's imperative that something like this be easily extractable, in a way that can be imported into future systems.


* Entries formatted in rich text (HTML to facilitate export)
* Password-protected datastore (not cryptographically strong, but should be enough to keep out your little brother)
* Multiple entries allowed per day
* Browse next/previous entry
* Export to XML
Planned Features

* Entry tagging, including browse by tag
* Full-text search
* Images attached to entries
* Score entries on user-defined criteria to track progress toward goals

Known Issues

* Previous version must be uninstalled before upgrading.
* Delete entry not allowed yet.
* There isn't yet any way to change your password.

Sounds good, all the software I found in the web about this is commercial, with freeware version, which nag all the time, or expensive shareware version, and of course the format.

I'm hoping to have an alpha ready this weekend. Basic operation and date browsing works now. I'm currently trying to figure out how to build an installer package, which is something I've never done before.

Anybody have pointers on building Visual Studio's setup projects, or links to more information on them?

nice  :Thmbsup:

If you'd like to make an installer, I really like this one and it's quite easy to use.

For most, the free version is plenty.

You don't get asked to pay unless you try to use a feature that is locked in the free version.
