Command Line Knowledge Base

CLKB is a command line app to manage knowledge-base snippets, nifty one-liners and everything you simply want to store by using the command line.

When you create a new item your favorite CLI-editor pops up and lets you add the content. When you close the editor you’ll be asked for a short description and optionally some tags to quickly find it back.

This app is written in Python and works on most Linux distro’s.
