Overview

gthnk presents a journal consisting of many entries. Entries are created using plain old text files, which gthnk imports once per day. Any text editor can be used to add information to gthnk. Entries are searchable using the embedded gthnk server, which can be accessed with a browser. Additional media, including images and PDFs, can be attached to the journal.

gthnk installs on Windows and OSX systems with Python 3.5+ and Python 2.7. See the Installation document for more details.
