I might have tried to set it up once but I’ve never used it. However, my understanding is that you can install it on a server. But it also says it needs Java to run it, so that might limit the type of device that can access it?


Anyway, Piggydb is possibly the only notes database I know of that makes it easy to display all the notes belonging to a category within the same page, so they can be viewed simultaneously. I guess you can achieve the same effect with the Scrivenings view of Scrivener, however Scrivener is not a notes database primarily.
