Joplin is a 100% open-source , markdown-driven note-taking app, similar to Obsidian or Logseq. There are apps for Mac, Windows, and Linux, even a terminal app!

Joplin Server is the open-source version of the sync engine behind, which takes you beyond simple apps, by enabling cross-device sync, sharing, publishing, etc.

Adding Joplin Server to your "Elf Stack" will let you utilize your ElfStorage (pass go, collect 100GB) for storing notes, attachments, etc.

The "publish note" feature is pretty - here's an example of what a published note looks like - it's published by joplin-server (so you can edit it with any client on any device), and it's auto-updated whenever the note is updated.

If you don't trust a seedy seedbox host with your super secret notes (and why should you?), you can enable E2E encryption in the client apps, which (like Seafile) means that all that's stored in ElfStorage is the encrypted blobs, and some metadata in the postgresql database.

How do I access Joplin-server?

Joplin-server will be available from your dashboard (https://<username>>), or directly, at https://<username>

What's my password?

The default username admin@localhost, and the password is admin (change this after logging in, obviously!).

If you change your email address (and you should), Joplin will try to send you an email to verify your address. Email doesn't work (Joplin Server is a "at home" version of the paid JoplinCloud service) so click on Admin -> Email, examine the email queue, find your confirmation email, and click on the link yourself :)
