Logbook system to manage notes through a Web interface


The Electronic Logbook (ELOG) provides a Web interface to manage notes. Its general purpose is to make it easy for people to put and access information online; in the form of short, time stamped text messages with optional HTML markup for presentation, and optional file attachments. ELOG has its own daemon, there is no need for a full-fledged server (e.g. Apache). It stores notes as simple as plain text; no special formatting. Its features:

  * Personal logbooks: Personal notes can be written into ELOG and can then be
    retrieved from anywhere with a Web browser.
  * Shared logbooks: Logbooks can be shared by several people, for reading and
    optionally for writing. Work groups can share and exchange information
    like in a (simplified) news group.
  * Small databases: Since arbitrary attributes can be defined for a logbook,
    it can be used as a small database with search facilities.
  * Problem collections: A system can consist of two logbooks, in one of which
    users enter bugs or problems. Whenever someone adds a problem, an email
    is automatically sent to the administrator.
  * Shift logbooks: If the Allow delete and Allow edit flags are off, an entry
    cannot be modified once it's been entered. This can be useful for shift
    logbooks for example in Physics experiments where each entry becomes a
    "document" with a time and author stamp.
  * File collections: Since files can be attached to ELOG entries, the system
    can be used to store and retrieve files.
