Thanks for awesome app, exactly what I was looking for.

I might have miss, but for the first look haven't found this in issues.
It would be cool have possibility to make nested folder structure, adding subfolders.
Also, default syntax for folder and opportunity to edit syntaxes list (hide unused), would accelerate and simplify adding new notes.
And lastly, would be very useful have more options for customizing Finder. Search by tags, change font, theme, sizes, hide sidebar, etc.

Everything else has already been said in the other threads.
I am very happy that found Boostnote, it will be very actively used.

Thank you for your feedback.

We need to discuss this issue more. How many notes you have? And, I'll make a new issue about it later.

default syntax for folder and opportunity to edit syntaxes list (hide unused)

This acutally is planned. I think It will be shipped within 2 weeks

lastly, would be very useful have more options for customizing Finder. Search by tags, change font, theme, sizes, hide sidebar, etc.

It would be great. But, all of problems is how it should be.(For me, designing app is MUCH HARDER than writing code) Could you give me more information here? #85

@Rokt33r Hey! Sorry for delay, a little bit busy this weekend.

We need to discuss this issue more. How many notes you have? And, I'll make a new issue about it later.

Currently I have approximately 170+ code snippets which I want to keep structured by categories, for a quick example:

JavaScript:

  • NodeJS
  • ES6
  • React
  • Electron
  • Gulp
  • ...

DevOps:

  • Nginx
  • Docker
  • Varnish, Memcached
  • ...

AppleScript:

  • General
  • Apps
  • Finder
  • Script Debugger
  • ...

Shell scripts:

  • Bash
  • Logs
  • Vim
  • ZSH, Prompts
  • ...

Automation:

  • Alfred
  • Hazel
  • Keyboard Maestro
  • ...

and so on.

Also I have about 400+ bookmarks in the raindrop. I really like it. but it's absolutely not suitable for storage code snippets. I tried to use SnippetsLab, Dash, GistBox, CodeBox, and others. In most cases opportunities are very limited, I can't feel like in the editor/IDE. Even such simple things as make a comment on the usual hotkey, unfortunately almost impossible anywhere, about a deeper customization can only dream of, and usually support with updates always leaves much to be desired.
In addition to all I want to store personal library of markdown docs, different tech manuals and hotkeys cheatsheets, for example be able make a quick edits in them to use it with cheaters. Now for this I use MWeb, but I feel not a very convenient to constantly switch between different apps, keep them always running, remember different hotkeys for the same things, I think it isn't right when this kind of apps, doesn't have ability to change hotkeys, or at least doesn't follow the usual macOS hotkeys (I'm sure there are good reasons).
From time to time I'm doing the cleaning in the snippets, bookmarks and other relevant stuff, but over time, the amount of material which I would like to keep only growing. And finally, I think I found what will eventually become the instrument of dreams for this. I have a lot of material but it's scattered absolutely everywhere where only it's possible, want to put everything in order.

default syntax for folder and opportunity to edit syntaxes list (hide unused)

Cool, this is a great news!

It would be great. But, all of problems is how it should be.(For me, designing app is MUCH HARDER than writing code) Could you give me more information here? #85

I need to think how to do it better, make a small analysis of personal preferences and observations, highlight the best things from all that I already tried, and of course how this may be the most useful and convenient for all. I'll write in #85 in a few days.

Great! Thanks you so much! Your feedback is so helpful.

I am acutally going to several ways to keep and indexing notes by the purpose like #123 .

Even such simple things as make a comment on the usual hotkey, unfortunately almost impossible anywhere, about a deeper customization can only dream of, and usually support with updates always leaves much to be desired.

Let's do it.

I think these api should be provided customizable hotkey. And also I think i should provide some scope of hotkey.(It might be optional)

Api key scope
New note(default behaviour, same as clicking the plus button) Cmd + N(OS X) / Ctrl + N(Others), a(when focusing SideNav) global
New Snippet note Cmd + N S / Ctrl + N S global
New Markdown note Cmd + N M / Ctrl + N M global
New note dialog Cmd + N N / Ctrl + N N global
Delete note Ctrl + Backspace(OS X) / Ctrl + Delete(Others) global(except focusing editor)
Focus detail e side nav and list
Focus editor ? detail and list
Focus tag input ? detail
Focus filename input ? detail
Focus syntax mode input ? detail
Add Favorite Cmd + D / ? global
Focus search input Cmd + P / ? global
Change font size of renderer Cmd + +(OS X) detail
Focus sidebar(to navigate folders and storages by arrow keys, and ) list and detail
Create folder Shift + A side nav
Delete folder d side nav
Add Storage ? side nav
Unlink Storage ? side nav
Rename Storage ? side nav
Focus Note List(to navigate notes by arrow keys, and ) Esc sidenav and detail

? is I cannot sure which key would be proper. I think some of them doesn't need to be provided by default.
If I missed something or did wrong, please tell me.

I want to store personal library

It is so interesting. I think if we provide a storage like Wiki, it would be helpful for building it.

By the way, I want you to join our slack. If you don't mind, send me an e-mail and I'll invite you. fluke8259@gmail.com
It is integrated with this storage. So, you could check our progress easily.

I'm look forward to your next feedback. I'm glad to help you realize your ideal. 👍

Hi! Lovely app.
I also have feature requests:
An option for the following
- Start minimized when system starts
- Start normal when system starts
- And of cause not starting up at system start

It would be nice to not have to make fixes to do so.
Thanks in regards :)

No news yet? It would be great to be able to create subfolders, otherwise it's difficult to organize so many notes.

We're going to renew Boostnote soon. And, definitely, the renewed app should have sub folders.

Wohoo. Thanks for the update @Rokt33r. Is there a branch I could follow? I'd be curious to learn how a feature like that would come to exist.

I think this should be handled with tags instead, but if this becomes a feature for sure I'll use it

Agree with @orlando. Bear notes supports nested tags and is super easy and convenient to organize my notes.

No subfolders yet? Wow this is a very basic feature that kills the whole snippet idea, sad.

Currently it does not look like anybody is working on implementing subfolders.

If you would really like this feature, then consider funding it on IssueHunt. That way developers are incentivized to pick up this feature request.

It is ok thanks, I am thinking about building something similar very soon with Electron for people to download for free. I think it is needed. Should not be too difficult.

There were many ideas thrown around in this thread/issue, but it's hard for these to be picked up by devs when they are scattered through a long thread.

Let's make this issue focused on "Subfolders" as they seem the most popular of the features.
