BasKet is a application into which you can drag and drop, add or paste various objects (text, URLs, images, etc...).

Objects can also be edited, copied, dragged, and so on. You can arrange them as you want!

BasKet allow you to keep all objects in one place, keep data on hand, and take notes...

The application was initially designed to be a Drop Drawers clone for KDE, but it's now a powerful tool in its own.

BasKet project also can be used as an EverNote or OneNote equivalent.

BasKet is still under developement, but it is already a very useful tool, with a future that promises new amazing features.

Here are some key features of "BasKet":

В· Take notes
В· Keep data on hand
В· Collect a full range of data into one place
В· Clean up your desktop
В· Fill TODO lists
В· Share ideas
В· Use stacks
В· Enhance your clipboard usage
В· Discover an unobtrusive application


Installation From Source With the Assistant

BasKet includes a small script that will guide you trough the process of building and insalling BasKet.

Simply extract the basket archive.
Right click the file in Konqueror and choose "Extract Here" in the "Actions" or "Extract" submenu.

Open the newly created folder and press F4 to open a new Konsole window for this folder.

Then, type ./installer: the assistant will do everything and will even (re)start BasKet for you.

It usualy take several minutes. At the end, it will beek and ask you root password to install it (if you choosen the system wide installation).

If the process doesn't success or some library are missing or cannot be found, think to install *-dev or *-devel packages of your distribution: they contain library (X, QT, KDE...) sources needed to compil from sources.

Installation From Distribution Package

If you've got BasKet in the form of a package for your distribution, just open it, give the root password and voilпїЅ, BasKet is now available in your KMenu, waiting for you to launch it.

Else, the program willn't be installed at the right place. Then, compile it with make.

If configure or make doesn't success or some library are missing or cannot be found, think to install *-dev or *-devel packages of your distribution: they contain library (X, QT, KDE...) sources needed to compil from sources.
Now, BasKet is compiled. If you haven't root right, you can launch it for you with the command ./basket.

If you have root right, you can install BasKet for all users: run su to have root privileges (give it your root password) and so make install.

Execute BasKet

Start BasKet with the basket command (in Run command for example (Alt+F2), or in a console) or ./basket if you haven't installed it (in this case it willn't be restarted when you restart KDE).

What's New in This Release:

В· A maintenance release that is focused on optimizing speed and solves a few issues: instantaneous "Filter as you Type", faster loading time for the first "Filter all Baskets", faster text editing (no disk access at every key press), enhanced link detection in text notes, and focusing the basket when pressing Alt+Up and Alt+Down.
В· As of this release, development has stopped, and new developers are needed.

What's New in This Release:

New features:
В· Export baskets in basket-archive files, and open them on another computer
В· Open welcome baskets at first launch (including tips & tricks), and let people re-open them later in the Help menu.
В· Easily import from text files and cut notes logicaly.
В· You can change the folder where baskets are saved (to ~/Baskets, ~/Notes or /mnt/myserver/baskets for instance).
В· You can easily backup and restore basket data.
В· Added a new background image
Changes in HTML exportation:
В· Export all sub-baskets when exporting to HTML
В· Show a progress dialog when exporting to HTML, and to not show progress dialogs for every single file copy
В· No more annoying dialog with useless options when exporting to HTML
Changed behaviors of the application:
A behavior I wanted to add for a long time, making BasKet Note Pads acts more naturally. I haven't changed it before because I needed to work arround a lot of bugs to make it seamless. Here is all what's changing, for a better, more natural use:
В· Note editors are now exactly the same size as the note.
В· Even if notes are bigger than the screen.
В· Everytimes (sometimes they were not exactacly the same size, until you waited for 3 seconds).
В· No more double-scrollbars bug.
В· The basket is scrolled to the cursor position when typing, so you can see what you type.
В· No more unwanted auto-scroll to the begin of a big note when starting and ending editing.
В· Clicking a link is opening it, and clicking the icon edit it (inverted button and link clicks). It was an important usabilty issue.
В· Global keyboard shortcuts changed to not interfer anymore with other global or application keyboard shortcuts.
В· Pressing Escape in a basket unselect all notes.
В· Always keep a space tall of 15 pixels at the bottom of columns, so that adding new notes there is quick and easy.
В· Fixed five crashs often reported using the Crash Report Mailer, and possibly solve four other minor crashes I can not reproduce. This 1.0 version should be really stable compared to 0.6.0.
В· Finally solved a very annoying bug on free-form baskets load with animations: free notes do not randomly grow in width anymore!
В· Removed the bug that was not always focusing the text-editor when clicking to edit a note. Was quite annoying!
В· Kontact integration is back for KDE 3.5.6.
В· Ensure the current basket name visible in the tree, even when using Alt+Up / Alt+Down...
В· Raise the main window when opening a basket archive from the desktop or Konqueror.
В· Do not save the notes to disk at every letter typed! Go back to the scheme of saving after 3 seconds of inactivity. Results in better performance, especially in password-encrypted baskets where notes were re-encrypted at every letter the user typed.
В· Optimisation: Uncache the note pixmap buffers when a basket is closed (another one is made active) to save a lot of memory.
В· Compile with GCC 4.2.
В· Accept only English comments in LikeBack (people who read the comments are more and more international and there are too much LikeBack comments).
В· Don't spam stderr, even when compiled without debug.
