# can-status¶

The can-status command should report different aspects of the current status of the notebook and writing folder.

If there is no notebook directory in the current working directory, then an error will be displayed to the user.

## New notes¶

The can-status command should report when markdown files in the writing folder are new to the notebook and can be added. The default note file will be markdown, but can should allow for multiple formats of notes

A heading of "new notes" will be displayed, under which each new note will have a line with the title of the note when it is added - the file name.
