写作和知识管理工具

如果要写书,用 Scrivener

也可以试试 WorkFlowyTrello,有人能用 WorkFlowy 写出书来。1)

如下标了亮五角星的 Notebooks,可以先试用它的 Beta 测试版 Notebooks for Mac 2 Public Beta,它的数据可放在 iCloud 里同步(最好弄一个米国版的 Apple ID 3),数据更有保障),因此手机和 Mac 都可以看和编辑信息。有些同类软件,数据在它自己的服务器上,那么如果万一它的服务器停了就看不到啦;Apple 的服务器暂时停掉的概率通常会更低一些,也考虑一下这个因素。


专门的写作软件,推荐这两个,带有搜索和部分知识管理功能:

  • Scrivener(专业的写作软件,功能强大;操作类似 Word 或 Pages,但可以直接在其中管理素材)$45
  • Ulysses(有些编辑更喜欢用这个;方便贯通 iPhone 和 Mac 无缝接着写;用 Markdown 语法)$39.99 yearly subscription

不是写作软件,但是可以辅助写作的:

  • WorkFlowy Free for 600 lists per month, or $4.99 per month ($49 per year) to WorkFlowy Pro (Unlimited lists) 4) 5) 6)
  • Trello Free, or $5 per month ($45 per year) to use as Trello Gold

偏向知识管理:

其实 Mac 里面默认的 Notes 就很好用了,不过我需要一个强迫症的功能,那就是我不希望不小心碰到键盘就改动了内容……
在我的私有维基里,就没有这个问题,按了「编辑」按钮,才能改内容,否则默认是只读模式
这是个很细微的地方,不过我很看重,哈哈

    • Having used both apps for 6 months or so (I actually put 3 chapters in Scrivener, and 3 different chapters in Ulysses), I do think Scrivener is more mature, and is better for academic writing. But Ulysses is great too, and can work for academic writing, and in some ways excels. But Ulysses is a better platform for blog posts, class notes, and presentation notes that don’t have footnotes don’t need more complex exporting. So I have moved everything back to Scrivener for my book project, but I’m writing this blog post in Ulysses. Whatever you choose, happy writing.

        • So much better than Ulysses. Plus a recommendation for IA writer dev team IA Writer is SO much better than Ulysses in terms of the writing/typing/composition interface. And the settings actually work and make sense. I tried and tried and tried to make Ulysses look half as good as IA writer on the screen, but despite being more expensive, that program is flawed.
