Notenik Basics

The basic concepts behind Notenik are pretty simple.

  1. Each Note consists of two or more Fields.

  2. The most basic Fields are a Title and a Body.

  3. Notes are typically grouped into Collections.

  4. All of the Notes within a Collection should typically have the same or similar sets of Fields.

  5. Each Note in a Collection must have a unique ID (typically a Title).

  6. Each Field consists of a Label (such as ‘Title’) and a value (such as the actual title of a particular Note).

  7. When comparing Field Labels and IDs, case, spacing and punctuation are ignored. As examples, ‘Title’, ‘TITLE’ and ‘title’ will all serve equally well to identify the Title of a Note. As another example, ‘Due Date’, ‘due-date’ and ‘DUEDATE’ would all be considered equivalent.

  8. Although any Field Labels may be used within a Note, certain Field Labels are expected to be commonly used, and so will typically carry with them some special meaning and associated functionality.
