HyperList is a methodology to describe anything in plain text.
HyperList can be used to describe any state or transition – anything from simple shopping and todo lists to large project plans, process design, the human history, the human DNA or the whole universe.
With HyperList, descriptions become simple, easily readable, concise and precise.
After a couple of months of work, and with a total overhaul, WOIM has been transformed into HyperList! I would like to extend my thanks to Marilyn Abrahamian for her invaluable help in proof reading and for suggesting some new, very useful features.
I admit freely to being proud of this; I consider HyperList to be one of my most useful contributions so far.
For the users of the excellent text editor VIM, there is a plugin that makes it very easy to create and manage HyperLists in VIM. The plugin includes a large range of features such as:
- Complete highlighting of HyperList elements
- Collapsing and expanding of up to 15 levels in a list
- Linking/referencing between elements (items) in a list
- Easy navigation in lists, including jumping to references
- “Presentation modes” where you can view only parts of lists and line-by-line
- Creating and checking of checkboxes in a list, with or without date stamps
- Encryption (and decryption) of whole lists or parts of lists
- Auto-encryption of lists – making a list into an excellent password safe
- HTML and LaTeX export of lists
- … and many more features.
