springseed – A simple program to take notes on Linux
To taking my short notes so far I’ve always used Tomboy, it’s a good small software and in the past I choose it because it could sync notes on Ubuntu one, but this supported has been dropped some times ago, and from that date I started to search for something else and perhaps I’ve found it with springseed.
It helps you organise notes with a beautiful interface and syncs with Dropbox so you can keep your notes with you, wherever you are.
Springseed is a free and open source software, written in CoffeeScript and uses Spine.JS for MVC and these are its main features:
- Dropbox Sync
- Markdown Support
- A Beautiful, Easy Interface
- Easily search through your notes
- Free & Open Source
It’s possible to download the .deb package (at 32 or 64 bits) From the official website , so once downloaded it’s possible to install it on debian based computer (Debian, Ubuntu,Mint) with the command:
sudo dpkg -i springseed_1.0.2_amd64.deb
If you use Arch Linux you can install the package available from the aur repository or as last possibility you can download the source from github, you’ll need node & npm installed.
npm install .
cake -w server
Once installed you can start the application from the menu accessories -> springseed or from a terminal with the command /opt/springseed/springseed-bin and you’ll see this window

Clicking on a note in the middle tab, you’ll highlight it and at the same time the tab on the right (the wider by default) will show the text of that note, the text is shown formatted with headers, bold text, list
