  • cloudmacs

    Selfhost your Emacs and access it in browser

    Things to note: - This is a very self-hosted type of method. You can store your notes in the cloud of course, but there's no "online Emacs" (whelp, nevermind, I stand corrected). - This is a very text-based environment. There are images and whatnot, but Emacs is fundamentally a bunch of text. This is a powerful thing, don't think of it as a downside. Text is the universal interface. - This is going to be a learning experience, both about a new tool and about yourself. You should walk away from Emacs with philosophical questions and a desire to convert the nonbelievers. - You will never feel comfortable using a normal computer again once you experience the pure bliss of a computing environment made just for you. - Do youself a favor and start with David Wilson's Emacs From Scratch series. If you follow that series all the way through, and make your own choices instead of just copying him, you'll be hooked by the end of it. DO NOT try to use Emacs raw and uncustomized, and shame anyone who tells you that you should. - You should look into keybindings, ergonomics, and human physiology (especially about hands). Regular computer stuff with a regular keyboard is hell on your hands, and Emacs will make it worse if you let it force it's arcane keybinds on you. Just define your own keybinds that work for you. Bonus points if you end up with a layered split vertical ortholinear concave thumb-cluster keyboard (I aint there yet because money, but I will eventually build my own custom keyboard).

  • syncthing-android

    Wrapper of syncthing for Android.

    You can use Syncthing or any other sync method to instantly sync all your notes between devices, and Emacs can even be configured to automatically reload files when changes are detected. I prefer Syncthing because it's Free Software and it lets you control your data instead of someone else controlling it for you.
