Standard Notes: The Almost Perfect Note-Taking Solution

Standard Notes is a pretty well-rounded offer, even in the free version, except for one single flaw that is a deal-breaker for me. The flaw is that in the free version, notes cannot be in Markdown format, and that’s not up for discussion for me.

If I ignored that drawback, everything else is almost perfect and more than enough, even in the free version. Namely, synchronization is allowed on an unlimited number of devices, the web app is really great, the desktop app is also great, there are nice native mobile apps and there’s also the Listed platform, which is essentially a public blog journal for your notes.

Some things are not entirely clear to me, since the whole platform is 100% open-source, and the server can also be self-hosted and which they highly recommend. I don’t understand what’s stopping me or what the limitations are in the self-hosted version, if there are any. It is clear that the server component can be self-hosted and according to their documentation, I can also host the web app and compile both the desktop and mobile apps. Few people do that because every app has the option of specifying which server to connect to.

It turned out that many people are having the same doubt, see here and here, and yes, I need to solve the Markdown issue in the self-hosted version somehow. Fortunately, the solution is very acceptable.

But listen to this now. When it comes to the Web and desktop Electron apps, the solution for the Markdown limit is really solid, in form of edior add-ons, listed on jonhadfield/awesome-standard-notes, and as far as I understand, the best editors are Append Editor and Rich Markdown Editor by Outline.

So, the “Markdown limit” is solved on the desktop, but I believe it still applies on mobile. Amazingly no! It seems that the mobile app is also web-based, and these upgrades work normally on mobile too. I’m not sure, but I think that’s how it is.

That is according to some comment on Reddit: “So I setup an extension through Web, and it gets synced to my Android application?”. Probably mobile app is also web-based so upgrades work normally on them as well. I’m not sure, but I think that’s how it is.

Google Keep has new features. Get to know them fast

QQwnNotes importuje Evernote! A posle sam ustanovio da VSCODe i Atom imaju preview, pa su oni logičnijij.

Open source:

Leanote looks awesome but not sure how much is is developed anymore. I like the because it’s golang+mongodb. Works “paste image” on their server and overall: quite nice.

Turtl is similar, only actively developed.

Imgur: As long as images are getting at least 1 view every 6 months, they will stick around forever. After that, your image may be removed to create more space for newer images.
