In this week’s issue of README Highlight (#49, 2023), we are taking a look at the following project: Joplin.
Joplin is a free, open source note-taking and to-do application that can handle a large number of notes organized into notebooks. It allows users to search, copy, tag, and modify notes either from the application itself or from their own text editor. The notes are stored in Markdown format.
One of the key features of Joplin is its ability to import notes from Evernote, including the formatted content, resources, and metadata. It also supports importing plain Markdown files.
Joplin follows an “offline first” approach, meaning that all your data is stored on your device, ensuring accessibility even without an internet connection. The application provides secure synchronization using end-to-end encryption with various cloud services such as Nextcloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, and Joplin Cloud.
The app offers full-text search functionality across all platforms, making it easy to find the information you need. It also supports customization through plugins and themes, allowing users to tailor the application to their preferences.
Joplin is available for Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS. In addition, it offers a Web Clipper for saving web pages and screenshots from browsers, which is available for Firefox and Chrome.
For more information about Joplin, you can refer to the full Joplin documentation.
Donations to Joplin support the development of the project, covering expenses such as digital certificates, app store fees, and hosting. To support the development of Joplin, you can visit the donation page.
The Joplin community is active and offers various platforms for discussion and support, including a support forum, Twitter, Mastodon, Patreon, Discord, LinkedIn, and a Lemmy community.
