Notes/Task organisation

Posted on Tue 07 June 2022 in notes

To keep myself more organised I've done some investigations into setting up notes. My requirements are:

  • Simple to set up
  • Easy to get started
  • Syncing capabilities (between laptop/desktop)
  • A way to generate HTML out of notes
  • Markdown for notes

Outline was recommended to me by a friend as an online mobile friendly note taking application. It is sadly not possible to self host it with local authentication instead of Google/Slack

Joplin is another candidate, it offers no syncing so that has to be done separate and the main application is not packaged in Arch Linux nor does it seem to be appealing to do as it's a electron based application.

So after some quick research, I decided to go for something simple and try vimwiki.
