What is jrnl?
(from http://jrnl.sh/overview.html) jrnl is a simple journal application for your command line. Journals are stored as human readable plain text files - you can put them into a Dropbox folder for instant syncing and you can be assured that your journal will still be readable in 2050, when all your fancy iPad journal applications will long be forgotten.
Optionally, your journal can be encrypted using the 256-bit AES.
How to install
At the time of writing, this has not been packaged within Debian but I will request it soon perhaps.
- jrnl requires pip so first run
sudo apt-get install python-pip
- Then you can install it by doing
sudo pip install jrnl
The problem is, you cannot run jrnl straight after this because it installs it within ~home/.local/bin but the $PATH variable does not include this. Instructions to configure this to be added later... (for now read https://github.com/maebert/jrnl/issues/483)
