Tomboy is a free and open-source desktop notetaking application written for Unix-like (including Mac OS X) and Microsoft Windows systems[1] written in C# using Gtk#. Tomboy is part of the GNOME desktop environment, often filling the need for personal information management. Its interface is a notepad with a Wiki-like linking system to connect notes together. Words in the note body that match existing note titles automatically become hyperlinks, making it simple to construct a personal wiki. For example, repeated references to favorite artists would automatically be highlighted in notes containing their names.



Some of the editing features supported:

  • Highlighting text
  • Inline spell checking using GtkSpell
  • Auto-linking of web and email addresses
  • Undo/redo
  • Font styling and sizing
  • Bulleted lists
  • Note synchronization over SSH or WebDAV. External synchronization support is being implemented [2] through Conduit
  • Mono dependency


Tomboy supports several plugins, including:

  • Evolution mail links
  • Galago/Pidgin presence
  • Note of the Day (not enabled by default)
  • Fixed Width text
  • HTML export
  • LaTeX math (in the package tomboy-latex, not installed by default)
  • Print
