Welcome to Keeppy!

Keeppy is the only tool you need  as you surf the web.  Use it to collect, organize and edit the information that you find.  With Keeppy, you can also add your own content and share your discoveries!  Here are the basics of Keeppy to help you get started. 




What is a Keeppy?

A Keeppy is a document consisting of one or more Snippets.  As you collect, create, and edit your Snippets, you can organize them into a larger themed group, which is called a Keeppy.  You can decide the best way to display all your Snippets in your Keeppy, and you have a lot of options to help you with this.  You can create, edit, and delete Snippets in your Keeppy.  You can increase or decrease the indentation of a Snippet to help bring attention to the most important information.  You can move a Snippet around inside your Keeppy, or you can move a Snippet to a completely different Keeppy.  If you would like, you can share a Snippet or a Keeppy with friends and even get their help with it.  And when you are ready, you can publish the Snippet or the Keeppy for anyone to see!

What is a Snippet? 


A Snippet is one piece of information, a building block of a Keeppy.   When you use Keeppy’s internet browser plugin tool to select information from a webpage, Keeppy creates a new Snippet for that information.  When you upload a picture or file, Keeppy creates a new Snippet for that information as well.  You can also create a new Snippet for your own original content and fill it with any text or pictures that you can imagine!  



Operations with snippets:
 
-          Create new
-          Edit
-          Delete
-          Increase/Decrease Indent
-          Move within Keeppy
-          Move to another Keeppy
-          Copy to another Keeppy
-          Publish
 
Each snippet has a series of attributes associated with it:
 
-          Date and Time when the snippet was created
-          Date and Time when the snippet was last modified
-          Reference(s) to the original web page if the snippet was created as a quote
-          A unique URL link for publishing
 
A snippet may have more than one reference in some case.  This will be explained later.
