Simple provides an opportunity to focus on the things that matter. When writing on a computer we at Lasso favor a simple .txt file to let our thoughts bleed onto the screen. For us there's no simpler digital medium than a .txt file (at least that's human readable). Offline, pen and paper can become a drag, you don't always have either sitting on your desk, or perhaps you forgot to drag one or the other with you. That's why we love doing this so much:

$ vim scratch.txt
Sorry, Emacs peeps.

A terminal and a single command and you're there. Your thoughts within 80 by 24.

But this approach is not without annoyances... Keeping files accross multiple machines up to date, sharing with others, easily viewable on all your devices, keeping some things hidden. Lasso will shine here.

You may find just our website user interface enough for you -- and if so I find that truly wonderful! But we've dedicated ourselves to creating a intuitive command line interface program to use while interfacing with Lasso. We've kept it dead simple. For instance, if you are within a terminal inside a directory that contains many .txt files (and itself contains subdirectories which may or may not contain .txt files) to "pull" all your .txt files from Lasso to the current directory (and possibly subdirectories) while also "pushing" any newly created or updated .txt files to lasso is a single command:

$ lasso sync

Not placeholder commit messages for random .txt files, no forgetting to "git add [email protected]", and no worrying about merge conflicts.

You can find our binaries here for GNU/Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
