Boostnote: an open source note-taking app for desktop and mobile devices

Most of the programmers are disorganized, at least in the real life. When we talk about order for example of how our PC Desktop Looks like, then we are very meticulous. For example, every sane company or development group has some tickets system to assign tasks about projects etc. This in general is great, however when it comes with private notes, I mean things that you want to keep in mind but they're just for you, most of us decide to store that in simple text files using any kind of editor like notepad.exe. Other utilities in Windows for example, were the Sticky notes on Windows 7, however they were removed on Upcoming versions.

This by itself is not a problem if you are achieving what you need with help of your notes, but what if I told you that there's a better way to store Programmers Reminders, notes and any kind of things with a single tool? We are talking about Boostnote.

What is Boostnote?

Boostnote is a "developer oriented note taking application" so to speak. Your markdown notes are saved automatically as you write and various formatting options have semi-live previews so you can double check what you’re writing. Text is formatted as you type. For code snippets the app is able to highlight code syntax in more than 100 languages, including Javascript, Python, HTML and CSS and you can store multiple code snippets within the same snippet:


Easy to write notes from anywhere, even if you're offline. When you update notes on your laptop, they are also reflected on your mobile devices. You can download the application for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.

How is it technically made?

The core of the application itself is written in JavaScript, HTML and CSS using the React Framework. To make it accesible as a desktop application, it uses the Electron Framework under the hood. The mobile version (iOS and Android) uses React Native.

How can i support the project?

The project is open source and its source code is hosted on this repository in Github, which means that pull requests are welcome. It's an independent project with its ongoing development made possible entirely thanks to the support by these awesome backers. If you'd like to join them, please consider on becoming a backer or sponsor on Open Collective.
