Notesnook Is an Open Source Note-taking App and Evernote Alternative

Notesnook is a free (as in speech) & open source note-taking app focused on user privacy & ease of use. To ensure zero knowledge principles, Notesnook encrypts everything on your device using XChaCha20-Poly1305 & Argon2.

The project is written in JavaScript, TyepScript, React, and React Native for mobile apps.

The project is an open source, which you can install it and use in on your own server. However, you can use the managed service for a price of 4.49 USD per month, which is a cheaper option compared to other competitors.
