I use Zim a little. It is a fine piece of software, but I don't have a
day-to-day need for it. There were features I needed that were not
present - for example handling data, full text searching, pages
appearing in more than one hierarchy.
So, for my own use I have written a replacement in Python 2 using the
PyQt4 libraries. Qt has some nice tools for creating a notebook
application, for example QtTextEdit. Likewise QtWebKit allows you to
integrate a browser with the editor. You might wonder why, but data
extraction from one to the other is useful when the notebook application
has direct access to the web page content.
It was also easy to include full text indexing using the Whoosh library.
In my experience, it would be better to start from scratch on something
similar to Zim rather than trying to migrate the current code to Qt,
though someone who is more familiar with the Zim code might disagree.
