At the moment I’m using kris his way to take notes (docbook style), and I’m using cvs to keep track of them (and also the versioning is actually nice). But because I also have to make Open Office documents (for offers,SLA,invoices,…) my cvs is getting poluted with binary stuff (I know, open office is actually xml, but the .odt file is a zip with the xml in, I’m really nog going to take it out and update it manually!!)
I always wanted to have a good content managent, let me rephrase that, document management system. But I never found one I liked. They were almost always web based and had no integration with the os itself. Well I think I may have found a project that does exactly what I want. its called jlibrary and I’m going to give it a go tonight. It’s based on the eclipse framework, so it’s platform independent but with the gui of the desktop your using.
So let’s hope it’s exactly what I hope, if so. I’ll also be putting all my knowledge documents in there, and start using it as a knowledge tree also. I know there are a lot of people out there looking for a good knowledge tree, well maybe this will fit your needs? I’m not sure yet, but I assume they work with a local cache, or I hope so, otherwise I’ve found the next thing I’m going to patch, shouldn’t be all to difficult.
