Features, limitations, internals: what OM is today (***THE SCREEN SHOTS*** are in here)
- FAST to navigate: once you get used to OM, you can really fly around your own knowledge model (notes, whatever).
- Today: A highly efficient desktop knowledge organizer for those who use lists, organized notes, org-mode, ~"infinite" mind maps, or outlines. (AGPL)
- Screen shots (a few anyway)
Today: You can take notes with it. Rearrange them easily, up and down
in a list, or up/down in the hierarchy. Link them to each other. Navigate
across links with simple keypresses. Make deeply nested lists. Link lists
to lists. Compose long paragraphs and attach them. Or do more complicated
things if desired, by creating relationship types and using those. You can
also export your information as .txt or .html files, filtering entities
based on whether they are marked public/private/unset. And you can import
data to OM from carefully-formatted .txt files.
It's better for some people than the alternatives, because:
- the navigation takes fewer keystrokes
- you don't have to read a manual (it's all on the
screen, or that is the intent)
- you can have the same thing in as many places as you want
- it is Free (some alternatives are, others are not),
- it has immense future potential for becoming a better-structured
and more-capable wikipedia, if we work together.
(Yes, a video would help, so you could see how efficient it can be,
and see it being used.)
- Like a personal wikipedia + evernote + collapsible outlines or brainstorming tools, but taken to another level: a comprehensive info filing/management system.
- Free and open.
- A text-only application where everything you need to know (or close) is written on the screen.
- Best if you are a touch-typist & willing to read the screen. After a while the keystrokes will become automatic and you can fly around the UI very quickly.
- Good for brainstorming: writing a bunch of stuff and reorganizing it quickly, repurposing or reusing by relinking any to any, throughout your notes.
- Lets you organize the info in any way you like or multiple ways, such as to match reality (object model), so it's easy to find things per your favored system.
- Lets you organize things in the way(s) *you* think or find most useful.
- OM helps when you have many things going on in life, and need to keep them straight.
- Allows exporting your info to a web site (i.e., as html), limited to what you wish to make public.
- Import/export to/from text files/outlines. If you note your todos & archive them when done, it can export a log: a crude but semi-automated personal journal.
- Allows storing copies of external files (some limited support).
- LIMITATION: No support (yet) for mouse, mobile, web, collaboration, or embedding code in the system for increased automation etc: those are planned.
- LIMITATION: The user interface needs work on general friendliness for any but those who want the features and are willing to read the screen and press keys.
- It is the best organizer I have ever used. About all you need to know is on the screen. Keyboard-oriented for now.
- Needs community feedback and engagement.
- Site has available mailing lists for announcements, support & discussion.
- Concepts and structure for unique and powerful FUTURE FEATURES, including:
