I made my own little selfhostable flat-file notebook
Most Notetaking apps do either too much (Notion), too less (Apple Notes) or locked me in (Evernote).
I wanted something that does just-enough™, in the spirit of a flat file cms. Let me try and wrap it up in a few bullets:
- ownership of the notes (flat files)
markdown, yaml, attachments all in one place in directories
- easy on the eyes/mind
I don’t want to see all the old stuff I may not need anymore
- a search that shows me snips in the notes
not just the notes in a sidebar
- a very simple tagging support
- basic file uploads
keeping the originals side by side with notes
I like to keep things simple, so I once again fell for Roda as the Web Layer. Tantiny is the kicker for this project. I was curious, if I could come up with something useful quickly, not having to deal with a complicated setup or Postgres as a requirement.
