  • Evernote Alternatives? | 2021-05-07 (what I'm using now, and have used the most of all of these) import enex file one at a time feels decently snappy: slower than old EN, faster than new EN markdown based: "write" mode and "view" mode (but there is a wysiwig editor) cannot open multiple windows... ...but does have tabs via plugins ...and can write markdown in external editor (my preferred editor is vi, so this works out) no built-in way to mark something as a favorite, pin to top , etc (but I'm faking it with some plugins and naming scheme) lots of internal keyboard shortcuts, I think they can all be reassigned. feels very DIY not a service per se -- notes are shared via provider such as dropbox, onedrive, etc. there is a CLI version, but only on linux (or WSL on windows) ... but the app includes a webservice server, so my enscript scripts can be recreated and improved

    It sounds like you would like a WYSIWYG markdown editor, since it pretty much has the features you are looking for. Joplin, for example has a markdown editor that's pretty easy to use.

  • Does anyone else use a file manager on Android and just create markdown notes that way and sync them with their cloud storage all through the file manager on Android? | 2021-05-05
  • Is anyone out there working on an open source OneNote?
    Joplin is pretty similar, depending on exactly which features you want:
  • Looking for advice on Campaign notes (Semi Long) | 2021-05-02
    I use Joplin because it backs up to Dropbox. I like that it sits in the system tray and I don't have to wait for it to load if I think of an idea. Evernote I won't use because, well for one when I tried it confused me, and for two they started charging for advanced features. OneNote I think is a good bet if you're more visual, and it backs up to OneDrive. Personal preference, having something that auto backs up to the cloud is handy, just in case.
