What is Memonite?
Memonite is an experimental personal wiki web application, that aims to be very fast to use.
What's so special about it?
It eliminates waiting for a page to load by storing everything locally in your browser.
To create a new page, you just press a keyboard shortcut or click a button and start writing immediately. You can navigate quickly between pages and edit them without waiting for an editor to load. You can organise the pages in a hierarchy using drag-and-drop, and you can add a link to another page using a fuzzy search.
What can I use it for?
quickly write down an idea
plan a project
track todo lists
save random bits of information, like contact details, URLs
What features does it have?
rich formatting – the editor supports headings, lists, checklists
diagrams – quickly create or edit diagrams with the integrated diagram editor
publishing – you can share read-only versions of a page or of a whole notebook
data stored locally – by default your data is stored on your machine
cloud sync – you can create cloud notebooks, which allows you to access your notebook from any computer
Is it stable?
No. Memonite is in its early stages, and there are plenty of bugs, incomplete features and usability issues.
To avoid data loss, make sure you regularly export your notebook. The exported file will include a navigable HTML version of your data.
That said, I find it very useful, and use it daily without any major issues.
