Your Brain, Your Notes

Beautiful, Accessible Markdown

Tangent fully styles your markdown as you type. Markup notation melts away as you leave it behind and reappears as soon as you need it.

Supports headers, bold, italics, highlights, web links, embedded images, lists, and code blocks with syntax highlighting.

Easy Wiki Links

Tangent uses wiki-style [[Double Bracket Links]] to connect notes together by filename. Autocomplete makes this easy.

Notes know what they link to and what links to them. If you're coming from Obsidian, the links between your notes already work!

Contextual Threads

As you follow and create links, the path behind you is retained and represented with horizontally sliding panels. These panels let you easily slide up and down the path of your thought process.

Minimalist Focus Mode

Dial in your focus to one note, one paragraph, one sentence. Tangent clears everything else out of the way while keeping your place.

Robust Keyboard Control

A shortcut for nearly every action, and a command palette for all of the rest.

Create and move between notes. Add and follow connections. Reorganize your files. All without taking your fingers from your keyboard.

Customizeable Environment

Tangent lets you customize essential fonts, colors, and spacing without needing to write custom CSS.

Make your workspace your own. Make it comfortable.

Plain Text Under Your Control

Tangent reads and writes markdown files directly on your computer. There is no server to connect to. Your notes are always ready for you, no matter what the internet is doing.

Your notes are not locked away in a proprietary format. They remain open to any program that can read plain text.

Sync and version your notes with whatever system you prefer. Git, Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, it all just works.
