Bournal is a bash script that allows you to write personal, password-protected journal entries, as well as search through and edit old entries. Bournal has no internet capablities, so if you're looking for a blogging app, boy did you click the wrong link.
- Linux or something similar with basic *nix utils.
- Vim or Nano, or some other editor that is not as awesome as Vim.

Copy and paste these commands into a terminal:
sudo wget http://frankpena.googlepages.com/bournal.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bournal.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bournal
- Just a little code cleanup for v1.1. I noticed I was SMOKING CRACK when I wrote the search section in interactive mode, causing it to reach critical levels of god-knows-whatitude. Should work now.
- Keep in mind the find option uses egrep for searches, which has slightly different syntax from grep (e.g. grep uses 'pretty\|pony' for finding "pretty OR pony", while egrep uses 'pretty|pony').
- Files encrypted with ccrypt WILL work between computers (assuming it's installed), so taking Bournal and all its entries with you on a flash drive will work just peachy. You can have entries automatically saved to the flash drive by changing the DIR variable to the path of your flashdrive, e.g.
DIR=/media/USB_VOL_NAME. However, if you run Bournal from a USB drive, you will need to predeed it with a shell e.g.
