  • Digital Notebooks | 2021-09-18
    Joplin is a fully-featured, free, open-source note-taking and to-do program that can handle a large number of markdown notes grouped into notebooks and tags. It provides end-to-end encryption and can sync with Nextcloud, Dropbox, and other services. It also allows for simple imports from Evernote and plain-text notes.
  • Migrating Away from Google Drive. Need External Folder Structure for Notes
    You should try Joplin. "Joplin is an open source note-taking app. Capture your thoughts and securely access them from any device".
  • Search feature usability | 2021-09-17
    I think it could be an idea to submit a request here: You could check if something similar is already requested to avoid unnecessary duplication.
  • Best writing app with Mac/iOS/iPadOS sync? | 2021-09-16
  • Looking for android notes app that stores notes in plain text so I can sync it via syncthing to my other devices | 2021-09-15
    While it does not store in plain text, I use Joplin for this exact use case.
  • Apple Notes alternative for both mac and windows? perhaps?
  • Any decent markdown editor focused on note taking? | 2021-09-11, and are. | 2021-09-11
    What about
  • Sharing an awesome note-taking app for CS students that I found today called Codex!
    Spent a huge time looking for something with a good search feature and joplin was hands down the best and it is free.
  • Note apps with good search?
    Have a look at Joplin. Also available here for Android.
  • Tools for a research/PhD diary | 2021-09-07
    I'm a first year PhD candidate in robotics and computer vision. From my master thesis, I was used to a paper notebook to write down my progress, thoughts, ideas, etc. To get a bit more structure into my day and research, I would like to re-start with this habit, but this time digitally. I would like to be able to use Markdown (and LaTex) and to sync it. I thought about using Joplin for this since I'm already using it for note-taking, but maybe there are better tools around. Can you suggest anything?
  • OneNote for Linux?
    That's a tough one. AFAIK, Joplin can sync the notes on OneDrive, but not straight on OneNote.
  • Best free FOSS apps request | 2021-09-06
    If you happen to replace Google Cloud with Nextcloud, Joplin can take the place of Google Keep and Les Pas can be a replacement for Google Photos
  • Concerns before trying to jump again in Linux (for the 4th time)
    Only Microsoft OneNote unfortunately is still unmatched. I've been starting to use Joplin, which feels painfully restrictive compared to the "click-anywhere/whiteboard feels" of OneNote... but eh! I can still use the web version of OneNote, so that's what I'll do.
  • What notetaking app should I use for my android device that also allows offline access?
    Joplin, awesome note & ToDo app, multiple platform and E2EE sync. Get it here: or at official website.
