hoodle - free pen note taking program

Hoodle is a pen notetaking program developed in Haskell using gtk2hs (Haskell binding to gtk library).

This project started as making a clone of xournal, a notetaking program developed in C.
Now hoodle works quite equivalent as xournal and has more unique functionalities.

Haskell is a much safer and higher-level language than C while still maintaining good performance. We can develop hoodle much more quickly with fewer bugs.

As xournal, hoodle can take wacom tablet X11 input in subpixel unit so that it can result in very smooth notetaking experience. The file format (.hdl format) is very similar to the file format of xournal (.xoj format) (although it is planned to be significantly changed as the development is more progressed). Xournal xoj files can be read directly from hoodle.

Currently, to install hoodle, your system should have ghc-7.6 or higher, and Haskell Platform 2014.2 or higher, or equivalent libraries (Haskell Platform is a set of standard libraries in Haskell).

Installing hoodle should be very simple using cabal-install which is a standard package build tool in Haskell:
> cabal update
> cabal install hoodle
