What note taking app (for code notes) are you using?

I have been using OneNote for a few years now and I am over the clunkiness. What is everyone using these days?
Having access via browser and OS X app is what I am looking for

+1 on notion... It has replaced the following apps for me:

Boostnote
Evernote
Trello
Parts of Google calendar

I use it for:
Tracking personal goals, projects, recipes, general ideas and inspiration, gift ideas, tasks, appointments, course notes in markdown, code snippets and workflow cheat sheets,and my workout log!

Curious, how do you guys use it for code snippets?

I would also love a example on how to organise code snippets in notion. I was thinking of creating one big board with a tag on the different code bases, js, vue, php, regex, ect or create a board for each.

Is the code experience better in Notion than Boostnote ?

I have never used Boostnote, but I have 0 complaints about code in Notion

There are some things that are more text editor-like with boost.

However, I'm more than happy with notion. I did ask them to create a new feature where you can specify the code type without having to select from a drop-down menu. Hopefully they'll implement it soon.

I use Boostnote. May not be what you're looking for, but I have it synced to my dropbox so I can multiple instances.

Boostnote is awesome and so is the team working on it. It's also an open source project that is great for people looking for oss opportunities

I've been working on codernotes.io to solve this problem, mostly because I couldn't find anything that had all the features I feel are important in a code note app.

I found a method that works for me that I wrote about here: codernotes.io/blog/how-to-take-cod.... Regardless of what software you use, see if that works for you!

I use Boostnote (after a long time with CherryTree) but I'm looking for a tool like TiddlyWiki
