QOwnNotes is the open source (GPL) plain-text file notepad with markdown support and todo list manager for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X and Windows by Patrizio Bekerle, that (optionally) works together with the notes application of ownCloud (or Nextcloud).
So you are able to write down your thoughts with QOwnNotes and edit or search for them later from your mobile device (like with CloudNotes) or the ownCloud web-service.
The notes are stored as plain text files and you can sync them with your ownCloud sync client. Of course other software, like Dropbox, Syncthing, Seafile or BitTorrent Sync can be used too.
I like the concept of having notes accessible in plain text files, like it is done in the ownCloud notes app, to gain a maximum of freedom, but I was not able to find a decent desktop note taking tool or a text editor, that handles them well in conjunction with ownCloud.
Out of this need QOwnNotes was born and I want to share with you the results.
Please be so kind to leave me a comment on the bottom of the page and tell me how you like QOwnNotes or write me your suggestions.
You can also contribute code by sending me pull requests on GitHub.
Visit the QOwnNotes installation page for all available Ubuntu Linux, Mac OS X and Windows releases!
There are many Linux software repositories, amongst them repositories for Ubuntu Linux, Arch Linux, Debian Linux, Gentoo Linux, openSUSE Linux and Fedora Linux.
It is also possible to use an other CalDAV server to sync your tasks to.
To get more features with ownCloud for your notes, like versioning and access to your trashed notes, you might also want to install QOwnNotesAPI on your ownCloud server.
To access your ownCloud notes from your mobile device you may want to get one of these apps:
