Treepad Lite

Note: The TreePad database program is no longer available. I’m leaving this post up for informational purposes. Links have been changed to point to collected links on the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine because now points to a marijuana dispensary.

Years ago, at the nudging of a former co-worker and friend, I decided to try working in the IT field as a Lotus Notes developer. About 2 years into my IT career, I determined that I needed a way to store code snippets and tips so that I could have a handy reference that allowed easy and quick retrieval of information for use on any project on which I was working.

  • TreePad ( is the most powerful and flexible solution I’ve found for keeping text notes on my computer, and I’ve been doing this for twenty some years now – since my TRS-80 Mod 3 in the early ’80s. (See my earlier post: TreePad – for every kind of note.) I’d like to explain that my way of using TreePad is quite simple.

TreePad PLUS is a very intuitive and powerful Word Processor, PIM and personal database, the program itself is only 842 Kb in size. It allows you to store all your notes, images, emails, texts, hyperlinks, etc. Into one or multiple databases.

After quite a bit of Internet research, I narrowed my choices down to two candidates: Info Select and TreePad. I eventually decided on TreePad after spending a bit of time using each program. I preferred the look, feel, and functionality of TreePad. Additionally, the initial price of TreePad was cheaper and it came with a lifetime license.


TreePad is a free-form database program, organized in a tree or node and article fashion. While there has not been a major upgrade for a number of years and the TreePad GUI is in need of a facelift, TreePad still works very well for information storage and retrieval. I initially used TreePad for the storage of Lotus Notes code snippets and tips as well as time tracking and reporting, but I now use it for a variety of information storage and retrieval needs: address book, blog drafts, various tip databases, various journals, database of all the music CDs I own, poems database, and quotes database.

Treepad Lite For Mac

I enjoy using TreePad for information storage and retrieval because of the tree or node structure and the article-centric method of data storage. Entering data is very similar to using a word processor. I can enter data using rich text, images, Internet links, and links to other articles within the same database. You can also create rudimentary tables in TreePad. Searching can be performed within an article or within an entire database.

Treepad Lite For Android

While TreePad is generally developed for the Windows operating system, I’ve experienced only very minor issues running it under WINE in Linux. macOS users should be able to run TreePad as well since WINE can be installed via Macports.

There are three free editions of TreePad available (Linux, Raspberry Pi, and Windows), but those editions only allow you to store notes in plain text format. There are a number of paid editions of TreePad available. I initially started out using TreePad PLUS, upgraded to TreePad SAFE and then TreePad Business, and finally upgraded to TreePad X Enterprise, Single-user, 12 Gb. There is also a server (multi-user) edition of TreePad available, but I do not have any experience using that edition. A nice comparison of the different editions is available on the TreePad site.

If you would like to share your databases with others, there are a number of export options available. You can export a full database or a separate tree or node as a web site or as one HTML document, and articles can be exported as an HTML page, as a rich text document, or as a plain text file. There is also a free TreePad Viewer app that allows others to view TreePad databases in HJT and TPD formats (both Treepad file formats). Finally, there is a free e-book creator app that enables the creation of e-books from TreePad databases.

Treepad Lite Download

If you decide to use TreePad (other than the Lite editions), make sure to get the free collection of additional tree or node icons. Extract the zipped icon files into a folder/directory of your choosing.

If you would like more info about how TreePad works without having to download and install the program, online manuals are available for TreePad PLUS, SAFE, and Business as well as TreePad X Enterprise.

Following are screenshots of some of the databases I’ve created with TreePad.
