Medleytext – An Intuitive and Stylish Note-Taking App for Programmers

We have written on a couple of note-taking apps for developers before and one such app is Boostnote. Today, we have another note-taking app that is just as good and it goes by the name Medleytext.

Medleytext is a free and open-source cross-platform note-taking application with functions aimed at developers. It features support for a handful of languages including Markdown, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

It features a beautiful and modern User Interface with a two panels before the text editor. The leftmost panel houses button icons for adding notes as well as sharing and importing them.

The next panel lists all the notebooks with the option to add more, and the text editor has a minimalist design with floating editing options at the top and a portion that indicates the note’s last saved time.

  1. You failed, it seems to even look at or mention whether it can store notes in the cloud. This is one of the most needed features I have, that I can take notes at home, see them at work or on my phone etc. Basically what Google Keep or Evernote do and Tomboy did before Ubuntu pulled the plug so I’m not aware of a good FOSS tool that is available across platforms including phones and stores notes in the cloud seemlessly.
