CardBook for Mac OS X

A simple elegant filing system, with source code

CardBook is free

CardBook is a card index application for Mac OS X. It is released under the FreeBSD License, which means without charge. Several sample cardbook files are included, as well as the full source code for CardBook.

Documentation of both the application and source are included in cardbook format.

Typical applications for CardBook:

  • addresses
  • recipes
  • CRC cards
  • to do lists
  • note keeping

Inevitably, there are some bugs in this release:

  • pasteboard operations with other applications (copy and paste and drag and drop) don't always work;
  • Make Card service should create a card in the top open cardbook;
  • undo isn't fully implemented, and will be flakey at times.

Please let me know of any more.
