Steno is a native GUI application for analysing articles. Fulltext search queries are supported, and articles may be tagged. Collected articles can be ‘slurped’ down from a server.

This is a tool for bulk-comparing sets of articles. Given two sets of articles, it generates an HTML report showing articles which look similar.

It comes in two flavours: a commandline version and one which has a little GUI to help set the various options.

No real documentation yet, but the commandline version has a README with a few clues.

The source code for both cli and gui flavours can be found in the steno repository on github.
