Luminotes

Luminotes is now free. You can download the desktop version of this rather rudimentary wiki (Windows and Linux).

I did, and I don't particularly like it.

But I am sure some people will like it just because it is so simple, not to say primitive.

It resides in your Webbrowser. These are the instructions:

'To make a new wiki note, click the "+" button on the left. Start by typing a title for your new note and then press enter. Next, type the contents of your new note, using the formatting buttons on the left for things like bold, italics, or lists.'

'To link one note to another, click the "Link" button on the left, type a note title, and then click the button again. Or, you can just highlight some text and click the "Link" button.'

'To follow a link to another note, just click on the link and the note will open up for you to view or edit. You can switch between notes simply by clicking on them, and hide notes by clicking the "hide" button.'

Several topics can be open at the same time. The look and feel reminds me of "TiddlyWiki."

The Search function is rudimentary: "You can quickly search the contents of every note in the all of your notebooks for a particular word or even several words. Just type in what you're searching for in the search box on the right side of the page, and then press enter."

It also runs from your USB-Drive.

Conclusion: No competition for ConnectedText!

Thanks for the tip. I like Liminotes much better than Tiddly.
