Introducing the Tyle
At Tyles, we want you to organise your knowledge magically. Building up knowledge should feel as easy as playing with bricks. Just grab whatever building blocks you want, and keep stacking to build your masterpiece. At Tyles, we call those building blocks a Tyle.
Whether you save information from the web, an app, a document or just jot down your own thoughts – everything is represented as a Tyle. So you can think of a Tyle as an atomic unit of knowledge.
A state-of-the-art editor
In addition to that, each Tyle is equipped with a powerful editor. Headings, lists, to dos – it's all there. Work on them as if each one were a doc.
Notes as modular pieces
However, the best thing about a Tyle is that it can be easily remixed with other Tyles, and reused wherever and whenever you like. There are no folders in Tyles. Instead, you can organize Tyles inside Tyles ... inside Tyles.
To link a Tyle simply use drag and drop.
Or type @, then start typing the name of the page you want to link. Select the page you'd like to link in the dropdown that appears.
The characteristics of a Tyle
Oftentimes, information needs to be included in multiple places. But when that content needs an update, it's a pain to make those changes over and over.
Now you can use Tyles to ensure your content is always accurate and up-to-date. When you make any changes to the content or formatting of a Tyle, then this Tyle will update automatically everywhere it is linked.
In case you want to adjust the Tyles' content to the different contexts it is in without affecting the other Tyles, you can simply turn the Tyle into an individual duplicate – also known as an instance.
While changes made to the newly created instance won't apply to the other Tyles anymore, a link to it's origin Tyle will always be there. With Tyles, you'll always have 100% context. Check out the "context" section in this guide to learn more about it.
