Hello, I’d like to introduce my new app for note taking - it’s called Trilium Notes and it’s hosted at GitHub: https://github.com/zadam/trilium

To quickly get some idea of what it can do you can look at some screenshots: https://github.com/zadam/trilium/wiki/Screenshot-tour
And list of features: https://github.com/zadam/trilium#features

Original inspiration for this app was Notecase Pro from with which it shares its basic idea of hierarchical structure of notes, but then it grew quite far apart.

It’s open source and free of charge. So far it’s available for Windows and Linux, support for Mac will come later (once I figure out how to build & test legally without having Mac).

Since it’s not heavily tested I can’t recommend it yet for “production” use, but it should be good enough for evaluation and experimentation.

Looks pretty cool - I’ll be happy to play with the Mac version!

This looks really cool! It’s kind of like the marriage of evernote, onenote, and markdown that I’ve always dreamed of. Two questions:

- Can you put your notes in a custom order within each folder or are they autosorted by title?
- Is there plans for mobile access at any point?

@thought: yes, you can arrange the notes in your desired order (either drag & drop or by CTRL-UP/CTRL-DOWN). Together with CTRL-LEFT and CTRL-RIGHT for demoting/promoting note in the hierarchy it makes it quite pleasant to arrange notes with just keyboard. Autosorting by title is available, but needs to be enabled by @sorted attribute.

I’m not planning to do native mobile app(s) at this point. Instead I plan to create mobile UI frontend for the “server edition” so you can access it from your browser on the phone (you’d have to be online).

Mac version is now available: https://github.com/zadam/trilium/releases
Any testing would be welcome.

There has been some new features as well - one of the more interesting are probably “relation maps”: https://github.com/zadam/trilium/wiki/Relation-map
