Requirements

if you don't have bundler:

$ gem install bundler

if it fails by permission, you can run as sudo (perhaps you're using preinstalled Ruby in the OS)

Something happens

If your Boostnote would be broken:

  • Notes and folders disappear
  • Folder names are something wrong (e.g: Unknown 1)

First of all, look over this document. After that, if you would not find how to solve your error, please report an issue.
