AppFlowy: an Open source Collaborative Note-taking for Creative Teams

AppFlowy.IO is a free open-source note-taking software for teams. It allows you to create almost anything you want in a writing canvas, such as tasks, kanban boards, and more.

AppFlowy is written in Flutter/ Dart, and it uses Rust for the backend.

Compared to Notion, AppFlowy allows you to organize your text and paragraphs better, and use Markdown with a straightforward WYSIWYG editor.

The project is currently in active development state, so expect more features to come. But unlike notion, it works completely in offline mode.

AppFlowy supports tables, boards, sub-pages, and allows users to create and import their own templates.

The boards can be organized in a grid, board or grouped by topic or tag. You can easily add a new block or column easily.

Attachment is also supported for pages and documents, you can easily upload or import your photos, videos, and documents.

Deleting any document or page will move it to the trash, which you can re-place later in the docs.

You can install AppFlowy from source, or use its installable binaries for Windows, Linux, and macOS. It also offers a Docker installation support which takes a few minutes to get everything up and running.

Users can export their document in a Markdown text format.
