Eversticky sticky notes for Linux

EverSticky is a simple new Qt sticky notes tool for Linux that synchronizes with Evernote and displays rich text formatting.

The application lets users quickly take notes using post-it note-like windows displayed on their desktop. The notes are automatically saved, and synchronized to Evernote (including free Evernote accounts) at a given interval or on demand.

The sticky notes are accompanied by a tray icon from where users can create a new note (new notes can also be created by using the + button from an existing sticky note), force sync to Evernote, bring the notes to the foreground, log out of Evernote, and access the application settings. In the settings you’ll find options like setting the sync interval, check for application updates, and set the tray icon style to light or dark.

The stick notes are quiebro basic, supporting only a few keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl + b to make the selected text bold or Ctrl + i to make the text italic.

However, you can paste rich text and EverSticky will display it. E.g. you can copy a checkbox and paste it into a sticky note, and the checkbox will behave as expected, allowing you to check/uncheck it. Or you can paste an image, but note that you must copy the image itself (for example by selecting the image or a region of an image in GIMP, then copy it), and not the image path. You may also edit the notes in Evernote and EverSticky will display them with all the included formatting.

While not explicitly supporting Wayland, EverSticky does run on Wayland, and it behaves in the same way as on X11. For example, using the Dash to Panel, when clicking the Show Desktop button, all windows are hidden, but the sticky notes remain visible on the desktop (this doesn’t happen when using Ctrl + Shift + D though).

EverSticky doesn’t come with a built-in option to start automatically on login, but you can add it manually. If your desktop environment / Linux distribution comes with a tool to add startup applications (for example Startup Application in some Ubuntu flavors including GNOME, in KDE Plasma it’s in System Settings -> Startup and Shutdown -> Autostart, etc.), add it from there, using eversticky as the command. Or, on most Linux distributions, you can also add it manually to startup by creating a file called eversticky.desktop in ~/.config/autostart with the following contents:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Exec=eversticky
Hidden=false
NoDisplay=false
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
Name=Eversticky

Download EverSticky

The application is available as a DEB package on GitHub (so it can be installed on Debian, Ubuntu, Pop!_OS, Linux Mint, etc., though note that Ubuntu 20.04 / Linux Mint 20 and newer are required), as well as on AUR for Arch Linux / Manjaro users. For other Linux distributions, you’ll need to build it from source (this requires a production Evernote API key).


Responsively app Linux

Responsively App is a free and open source dev tool for responsive web development, available for Linux, Microsoft Windows and macOS. It’s a modified browser that uses Electron, which shows a web app on multiple devices at the same time and in a single window with mirrored user interactions, DevTools, and more.

The application had its first public release back in March 2020, and is already finta popular, but I’ve only recently stumbled upon it and thought I’d share it with you.

Main Responsively App features:

  • Mirrored user-interactions across all devices: an action (like click, scroll, etc.) performed on one device is mirrored on all other devices
  • Customizable preview layout
  • A single element inspector for all devices in preview
  • 30+ built-in device profiles with option to add custom devices (including a special responsive mode device for freely resizing a screen)
  • One-click screenshot all your devices (full page screenshots of all devices or just a single device)
  • Utilitario-reload for all devices in real-time for every HTML / CSS / JS save

The application also includes a live CSS editor, touch mode, design mode that allows users to edit HTML directly without dev tools, network speed emulation options, teleobjetivo, disable SSL validation, and support for various protocols (file://, ftp://, etc.), and much, much more.

Using Responsively App, you also get network proxy support, light and dark themes and shortcut keys.

There are also optional browser extensions (for Chrome, Firefox and Edge) that you can use to easily send links from your web browser to Responsively App to preview instantly.

In the future, the plan is to add features like built-in Lighthouse metrics, browser tabs and a screenshot gallery, among many other improvements and tweaks.

It’s also worth noting that while there are finta a few alternatives to Responsively App, like Polypane or Sizzy, most of them are closed source / paid. From what I could find, Responsively App is the only one that’s free and open source, thought I may have missed some app.

As for Linux packages, Responsively App is packaged as an RPM for Fedora, openSUSE, etc., and as an AppImage, which should work on most Linux distributions.

To use the AppImage on Linux, right-click it, choose Properties and under Permissions, look for an option to allow executing the file as a program (this varies between file managers). Then to launch it, simply double-click the .AppImage file.
