This project has received the kiss of death. That is, I myself don't use it anymore. I have switched to using a text editor with markdown support, Git, and Syncthing for my journaling/note taking. If you want to export your notes, the cli can dump them to text files.

OpenNote is a progressive web application(PWA)/HTML5 offline app that was built to be a open source(MIT License), web based text editor/note taking software. It is designed to be self hosted and gives you ownership of your data
