tesh - a TExt SHell.

What this page is about:

This is the homepage of tesh, my favourite program. : ) Give it a try if you feel like it. It is a simple shell which allows you to create and manage text documents by applying tags to them. Later, documents can be retrieved by running queries on those tags (e.g., "show me all docs that deal with 'dogs' and 'cats'").

tesh was written by Manuel Arriaga and is available as free software: it is distributed under the terms of the GPL.

Version 1.2 can be downloaded from here.

To become the second tesh user on the planet you'll need:

  • Python and
  • your favorite text editor!
  • To ask questions, offer feedback or report bugs just email me (email address found at the bottom of the page).
