 Novel Writing Assistant (Version 1.7)

Available for Linux and Windows!

Kabikaboo is a tree-based note pad, designed to help you plan a book or complex project.

Features (1.8):
- Fonts: change the default fonts and sizes on your text, tree, tabs, and more! (complete)
- Darkroom: go fullscreen with just the text editor (F8)
- Margin Settings: a lot of text view related spacing settings now customizable
- No package yet, but available in repository

Features (1.7):
- Note Tree: infinitely customizable; you create all categories and subcategories.
- Edit Nodes: a simple node that you can write text inside of.
- View Nodes: recursively see any section of your tree, as if it were one document.
- Tabbed Notebook: keep as many nodes open as you want.
- Bookmarks: help you jump back to your favorite/important nodes.
- Visits: three different automatic lists of visited nodes.
- and much more


Kabikaboo is meant to help you plan a novel, but could be used for anything that would benefit from tree-based text organization. Kabikaboo is not meant to create a formatted document - you should use AbiWord/OpenOffice/LaTeX or some other editor for that purpose.

In the future, we plan to support more writing features, such as: rich text editing, timelines, in-text node links, recursive editing, templates, and more.

Free and open source, created with Python, PyGTK, Glade, on Ubuntu Debian Linux GNU.
