Too many developers promise and then don’t deliver. I make a point of trying never to promise anything in advance. Dates or features. It makes my life less stressful.

Yes, for example, I’m supporting Joplin, which I hope will eventually become a capable Evernote alternative

Akexander, a little off topic, but…

I no longer add anything to Evernote or use it for clipping, both because of cost and because it would no longer clip whole articles from the web on my Android phone.

I now use Pocket for all web clipping, and either Google docs or Dynalist for notes/writing.

I have looked at Standard Notes, Nimbus, and Joplin. My question is what draws you to Joplin? Thanks.

Well, for one thing, it’s open source. It aims to cover all the platforms that I use, including Linux, it already has a web clipper and it uses Markdown.

I also appreciate the developers’ focused approach, similar to Cintanotes, and I like that they asked for support via Patreon—ask and you shall receive.

as well as MadaboutDana’s original post introducing Joplin to this forum:

I still use Evernote, but in the long term am looking for simpler solutions.

Alexander, thank you. I took a look at Joplin, and one drawback for me is markdown. I fail to see its appeal or a reason forbit in a general purpose notes program. I tolerate it in Dynalist but much prefer the approach taken by EN and Nimbus. In Standard Notes you have to buy the extensions package to get away from compulsory markdown.
