Description : ELN is an Electronic Lab Notebook that lets you focus on note taking. ELN supports text, images, and basic graphical annotations. ELN makes safeguarding your notebook entries its number one priority and is extremely stable.
ELN is an electronic lab notebook that has been in development since 2013
and that is used by several researchers at Caltech and at other institutions.
The author and his lab members use ELN every day and have collectively
created close to 10,000 pages of notes in it over several years.
ELN is easy to use, highly reliably, and does not distract from the task
of note taking. ELN supports archiving notebooks with git for
traceability and long-term stability.
ELN is not a dependency for other packages.
The author is not aware of other packages that provide an experience as close
to a regular paper notebook as ELN does.
The author has maintained ELN for 8 years now and intends to keep doing so.
indefinitely. A .deb for Debian 10 already exists at
The author is not a DD and is looking for a sponsor. ELN might eventually
find a natural home in DebianScience/Typesetting.
