Notabase is your open-source reliable personal knowledge base

A personal knowledge base for networked thinking.

What is Notabse?

Notabase is a free open-source note-taking and a Markdown editor for users who take regular notes and require a high level of organization.

It lets you connect knowledge and form ideas by linking notes together. These links allow you to traverse your notes like webpages and find connections that you never would have thought of otherwise. Think of it as a personal Wikipedia for your brain that you can edit and browse as you like. As you add more notes, it gets more powerful!

Note the project is under active development, so expect more features in the near future.
