Cherrytree - A Feature-Rich Wiki-Style Note-Taking App

I recently wrote on Thetapad and Zim – both are excellent note-taking applications with their specialty geared towards different users. Today, thanks to suggestions from FossMint readers, I introduce to you Cherrytree.

Of course, Cherrytree’s feature list goes on longer than the highlights above and even more on its wish list which you can look up on its website’s homepage.

Both Zim and Cherrytree are excellent wiki-style note-taking applications but Cherrytree has more functions available to users after a clean installation than Zim does.

And though Zim users can always make use of extensions, Cherrytree seems to be more user-friendly to me. Ultimately, it depends on which app appeals to you more and meets your work needs.

On Debian based distributions such a Ubuntu and Linux Mint, you can install Cherrytree using following PPA.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:giuspen/ppa$ sudo apt update$ sudo apt install cherrytree

Other Linux distributions, can follow the download button to try Cherrytree out for yourself and remember to return and tell us how you feel about it.
