myBase - Save and Organize All of Your Information In One Place

Introducing myBase

myBase is a powerful yet easy-to-use knowledge management software that allows entry of unstructured text, webpages, images, documents, emails and even arbitrary files without regard to length or format. All information is automatically compressed and stored in the tree structured outline form. Unlike traditional database programs, myBase accepts text input like a word processor, and provides better methods for capturing, editing, organizing, retrieving, searching and sharing information.

With myBase, you can:

  • Create personal or corporate full-text searchable knowledgebase or research databases containing text, graphics, webpages and documents;
  • Save and organize a large and growing collection of notes and documents in one place with ease;
  • Keep notes in the tree outline form and securely stored in the local file system;
  • Manage product/project/customer information database with ease;
  • Write books within a tree outline much more efficiently than a standard Word Processor;
  • And more ...

System Requirements

To run myBase Desktop v7.x, you will need a PC (or Tablet PC) running GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, or Windows XP+.

Installation

For Windows, run the downloaded setup program and follow the instructions; You'll need to select the target directory and program group name; Then you can double click on the program's icon to start it.

For Mac OS X, open the downloaded .dmg package file, then drag the myBase icon and drop into the system Application folder, then you can double click on the program's icon to start it.

For GNU/Linux, simply extract the downloaded .tar package into your home directory, then you can double click on the file 'myBase.run' within X11 file manager or simply run the command line 'myBase.run &' in Terminal; You might also want to create a launcher for myBase.run on the X11 desktop for convenience.

Uninstallation

For Windows, open Control Panel, double click the "Add/Remove Programs" icon, click "myBase Desktop", then click "Add/Remove", and "Yes" to remove it.

For Mac OS X, simply delete the myBase icon from within the Application folder.

For GNU/Linux, simply remove the directory in which the program's .tar package was extracted.

Note that you may need to create backup for your own .nyf database files created within myBase before uninstalling or removing the program.

Upgrading existing .nyf databases to Ver 7.x

From version 7.0 on, myBase has switched over to save text content in HTML format for better cross-platform support, with no support for RTF formats any more. If you have existing .nyf databases generated with previous version 5.x/6.x of myBase for Windows, and would like to upgrade to v7.x, please try to upgrade the database file format, by selecting the menu item "File - Maintenance - Replicate from RTF to HTML ..." within myBase v6.3.8+ for Windows. The generated .nyf databases will work smoothly with myBase v7.x on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

Note that unlike the RTF text format, the HTML text format doesn't support OLE objects embedding into the text content; If any RTF text content containing OLE objects, they will be converted into thumbnail images in the resulting HTML contents, with no support of double-clicking on OLE objects to view/edit them any more.
