Captain's Log: a timestamped note taking app

An electron app that uses a command-line like log to keep track of what you're doing and working on, saving it to a YAML file. I used this for a while at work to track some trial-and-error performance tuning of Java apps. Not being able to go back and change your text frees you from the desire to make each sentence perfect.

Captain’s Log: a timestamped note taking app

When you’re writing code it’s easy to lose track of what you did and when you did it. By timestamping your notes and writing them to a yaml file containing the raw text, you can keep your notes and grep them too.

You can check out the app, and download it at vogtb.github.io/captains-log/.
