1. Getting and installing
NoteFinder is free software and is distributed under the terms of new BSD license.
There are two ways you can get NoteFinder.
Stable releases can be always found at http://notefinder.org.ru official website. Current development snapshots can be fetched from NoteFinder's Mercurial repository at http://bitbucket.org/gforgx/notefinder. Note that development snapshots may contain untested, buggy and maybe even dangerous code so don't be surprised if it would delete or break all of your notes or maybe even eat your kitties, blah-blah.
NoteFinder requires some open source applications and libraries to work in full force.
- Python >=2.5 (note that NoteFinder is completely untested with Python's 2.6 and 3k
branches, mail me a bug if it wouldn't work). * PyQt4 >= 4.4 (it's actually optional, but you'll need it if you want to use great graphical user interface. Note that PyQt requires Qt itself). * PyRSS2Gen (open source library that provides RSS generating features. It's needed for daemon interface to provide RSS feeds via internal web server). * FeedParser (this library provides code for parsing RSS feeds and it's used by optional RSS backend that's distributed as extension). * manpath and man2html utilies (you'd need it if you would like to view man entries withing NoteFinder)
Installation is quite easy, you should simply cd to notefinder sources directory (it should contain setup.py and setup.cfg files) and type 'python setup.py install' into your favorite X11 terminal emulator.
Once you have installed application you can run it by typing 'notefinder' command.
