A framework for clustering research notes

View the Project on GitHub BrianInGermany/Xzerpt


Xzerpt uses idea clustering and source management to bring structure to your research notes and keep track of what ideas you found where.

Record your ideas in a online interface and then create printable Xzerpt cards you can cluster into stacks on your desk.

Use the Xzerpt interface at xzerpt.com/input.
