Features

Linux version

Lifeograph has all the basic features one might expect from a diary program and a few more:

  • Supports encrypted (with real encryption) and unencrypted diaries
  • Automatically logs out when not used for some time (to protect your diary when you forget to log out doing some other thing) (optional)
  • Automatically formats entry titles and subheadings (we owe thanks to tomboy for the idea)
  • Wiki-like rich text formatting (*bold*, _italic_, =strikeout=, etc...)
  • Basic searching/filtering and replacing text
  • Themes in text editor
  • Favorite entries
  • Entries that can be marked as to-do items
  • Entry tagging
  • Spell checking
  • Links between entries
  • Links in URI form (http://, file://, mailto://, etc...)
  • Automatic backups
  • Printing individual entries or whole diaries
  • Statistical charts (from v1.4 on some serious analytical capabilities when combined with parametric tags)
  • Image thumbnails in entries

Android version

Android version does not have all the features in the Linux version, yet. (Most of the missing functionality will be implemented in the future releases.) The comparison of abilities on the two platforms are as follows:

  • Android version can open any file created by the desktop version. Unsupported information will be preserved on save
  • It produces diary files of version 1020 which is only supported by the latest Linux version (1.2).
  • Trash is not supported
  • Check/bulleted/numbered lists are not supported in the entry editor
  • Themes are supported but they cannot be edited
  • Printing is not available

Windows version

Lifeograph for Windows is currently in early development phase and lacks many features provided by the Linux version. Main missing features are:

  • Printing
  • Check/bulleted/numbered lists in entries
  • Links of any kind in entries
  • Spell checking
  • Creating and editing themes (existing themes can be used)
  • Trash


Lifeograph for Windows can open any file created by the desktop version. Unsupported information will be preserved on save. It produces diary files of version 1020 which is only supported by the latest Linux version (1.2).

Planned features

In future releases expect to have:

  • File attachments in diaries
  • Plug-ins
