A FOSS Note Taking App... with Synchronization Capabilities (Joplin)

Joplin is a FOSS note taking app. I use the terminal functionalities almost exclusively, but there is a great GUI.

It's cross-platform and can sync πŸ‘€

Joplin will have its first Meetup on 30 August 2022! Come and join us at the Old Thameside Inn next to London Bridge!


🌞 Joplin participates in Google Summer of Code 2022! More info on the announcement post. 🌞


Joplin is a free, open source note taking and to-do application, which can handle a large number of notes organised into notebooks. The notes are searchable, can be copied, tagged and modified either from the applications directly or from your own text editor. The notes are in Markdown format.

Notes exported from Evernote can be imported into Joplin, including the formatted content (which is converted to Markdown), resources (images, attachments, etc.) and complete metadata (geolocation, updated time, created time, etc.). Plain Markdown files can also be imported.

The notes can be securely synchronised using end-to-end encryption with various cloud services including Nextcloud, Dropbox, OneDrive and Joplin Cloud…

If you've got a note-taking app preference, share it below so that others can get more organized too!

Yeah. A lot of open source solutions in this space are lacking, but joplin seems to have it figured out.
