PIM (Personal Info Management) or DAM (Digital Asset Management) and Knowledge Management are tools-applications that seem completely missing on all platforms by default, but to me such software is essential - why storing loose files in a chaotic way everywhere scattered on disk, when you can have a searchable journal-database where everything is connected with tags, contexts, notes, dates, and links?
Seems crazy this kind of software is so much ignored.
Before I worked on Mac, switching to Manjaro I needed some viable solutions to continue with my daily routines.
I found several apps which could help me to collect multimedia-informations (supporting: rich text, links, pictures, video, audio). And the best choices were Cherrytree and Trilium, both available as AUR packages.
The newest version of Cherrytree is a biit old, it writes and reads slowly from disk, and the gui-icons are damn tiny. But it's working and I hope to use it for a while.
Trilium instead, looks phenomenal but has some learning curve to get into it.
These days I am having a problem with Trilium, before and after the latest updates of my system.
Something must be broken, I also downloaded Trilium's latest version this morning, restarted my machine but Trilium refuses still to launch. Very unhappy about because a week ago or so I ran that app and now nothing anymore.
Anyway, to the curators of the repos out here in the forums: what are the requisites for applications to be listed in Manjaro's repos? please add Trilium and eventually also Cherrytree to the official repos!
It is essential software, AUR packages are not always working…or updated
