Given that you’re using NeoVim with Markdown files, I did the following search:


This searches for Obsidian alternatives that are web-based and that support Markdown. 13 alternatives are listed. A few of them look like they would meet your needs. Boostnote looks like it might most closely resemble what you’re used to. (Bangle.io claims to work with local files, which sounds intriguing, although it hasn’t been updated in some months.)

I would also recommend Dynalist—as Steve Zeoli did.  I have used Dynalist in a browser on Windows machines provided to me by clients, with no issues.

BUT—big but—make sure you understand the privacy and security policies governing that client machine.  Accessing a browser-based note taking site might violate security policies—many government agencies I’ve worked with track such usage to guard against data exfiltration.  In might be prudent to use your personal machine next to the client’s machine, as also recommended above, just to avoid issues.

What about something from the tiddlywiki ecosystem.  There are tiddlywiki versions to mimic the look and feel of many popular note taking applications like roam.  Lots of plugins to add functions. Runs locally in a browser on a thumbdrive.

I do not sue it but here are some names that I have come across.

Similarly dokuwiki can be installed on a thumbdrive and has plugins to extend much of its functions.
