This looks brilliant!  I will install it for testing!

I’ve been searching for a full-featured cross platform note-taking app. I formerly loved Keepnote, but development on it stalled for years. CherryTree is quite good, but the interface seems quite poor compared to Keepnote- perhaps its just my personal bias.
MyNotex is a contender which I’m testing now.
Laverna is quite interesting, but I can’t see the benefit of markup language other than to force me to memorize a bunch of codes that should be automated anyway. It also does not allow attachment of files.

The one feature I want: the ability to clip sections of webpages and insert them into the PIM with formatting more-or-less intact and have the URL inserted automatically.
So far, I’ve not found it on a cross-platform app. Even the Linux version of MyBase does not seem to have this function now.

Looks like an impressive start. But I wasn’t able to really figure out how to add new nodes or text.

Will you include a web-clipping function that will allow users to paste in formatted text?

Also, the tagging system appears to support hierarchical tagging. Could you design the system so that users could import/export a hierarchical tagging system like a controlled vocabulary.
The best system I have seen for hierarchical tagging is in the document management program IMatch 5

That Github page is gone. There’s another Treenote at github at


but I don’t know if it’s the same project. Also, I came across this blog post


which mentioned a Treenote app located at Treenote.org that was supposed to be like an offline version of Workflowy/Dynalist, but the site is password-protected.

Thanks for noting that. I just checked, and the new Github page you noted is indeed the same project—I believe Jan Korte is the main developer in both cases. But note that he indicates on the new Github page that there will be no further development of Treenote, as he is now doing “a startup, which works on the successor of TreeNote”.
