This application is in early development. There are some things that work, but we do not consider anything stable or usable at this moment. Feel free to play around anyways.

Goal / What is imag?

Our (long-term) goal is to

Create a fast, reliable commandline personal information management suite which covers all aspects of personal information management, consists of reusable parts and integrates well with known commandline tools.

Yes, imag is a rather ambitous project as it tries to reimplement functionality for several "personal information management aspects". It is a hobby project, keep that in mind. We try to use standards like vcard and icalendar wherever possible.

imag consists of modules (e.g. imag-notes, imag-tag, imag-view), where each module covers one PIM aspect. Have a look at the documentation for some more words on this.


Here is how to try imag out.

imag is a suite/collection of tools (like git, for example) and you can build them individually. All subdirectories prefixed with "libimag" are libraries. All subdirectories prefixed with "imag-" are binaries and compiling them will give you a commandline application.


We use cargo for building all crates in this repository. Make sure to use a recent cargo, at least one with workspace support. Building all crates works with cargo build --all, building individual crates by cding to their directory and calling cargo build.


After you build the module you want to play with, you can simply call the binary itself with the --help flag, to get some help what the module is capable of.

If you installed the module, you can either call imag-<modulename> (if the install-directory is in your $PATH), or install the imag binary to call imag <modulename> (also if everything is in your $PATH).

Staying up-to-date

We have a official website for imag, where I post release notes and monthly(ish) updates what's happening in the source tree (RSS here).

We also have a mailinglist where I post updates and where discussion and questions are encouraged.


This is a hobby project, so sometimes things are not optimal and might go unrecognized and slip through. Feel free to open issues about things you notice!

Though, we have some documentation in the ./doc subtree which can be compiled to PDF or a website. These docs are not published anywhere and are not even integrated into our CI, so it might be broken (though it's unlikely). Developer documentation is also available online on github.io and on docs.rs, though they might be a bit outdated.

Please contribute!

We are looking for contributors!
