📚 How to use

  1. Download from the latest Release that suit your computer system.
  2. Unzip and execute(trilium for Linux, trilium.sh for Linux server, trilium.exe for Windows, trilium.app for macOS).
  3. Enjoy :)

🐳 How to run server with docker

For Trilium Notes server, you can download my docker-compose.yml Then run it with docker simply by executing:

docker-compose up -d

It will download the Chinese version of Trilium I built on Docker Hub.

Open http://127.0.0.1:8080 in your browser to access the server page.

Your note data will be in the same directory of the docker-compose.yml file.


🌐 How to translate

If you would like to check the code (my codes comes with Chinese and English comments, check it) and compile it by yourself. Here is some information may be useful.

WARNING! The scripts I wrote includes some 'rm -rf' commands, modify and use codes with care!

🌐 How does the translation work

It extracts the resource files from the latest Trilium Notes official release and use regular expression to replace UI text for each file. Then pack the translated files back into the package. Done.

💻 Compile Environment Requirement

My environment is Manjaro(Linux)/macOS based, but you can make some change to work on other platform. You need to change some path configuration in my code to work on your machine.

Python3 with module

pip3 install requests --user

Nodejs with module

npm install -g asar webpack webpack-cli
npm install webpack --save-dev

7z if you want to make release

🔍 Translate Process

  1. Modify configurations in settings.py by the comments.
  2. Do translate in translations.py. (See translations_cn.py. There are over 1000 lines to translate, be patient :) )
  3. Run python3 init.py to download latest Trilium Notes.
  4. Run python3 trans.py to make a translation patch.
  5. Run python3 make_release.py to apply patch to releases for all platforms.

Note: In translations.py there are some texts begin or ends with quotes were made on purpose for regex match, do not remove them in your translation. There are some text like '${xxxx}' in the translation, these are the placeholder in the original Trilium Notes source code, do not modify them unless you know what you are doing.

📝 More text to translate

If you'd like to translate more text, mark each text in the file that you want to translate with double brackets{{}} like I did in trans.py.

Put everything between double brackets into the dict in translations.py and translate to the language you like. (Some text were ended with }. Try to avoid triple brackets by change from ${xxx}}}' to something like ${xxx}'}} )


🛑 Limitations

The translation is hard-coded in the frontend/backend source code, so you can not switch between languages. If there were some mistakes in the translation, Trilium Notes may not function correctly. Therefore, please back up your data before use.

If you break Trilium Notes somehow, you need to redownload everything with init.py.


🤔 Common questions

The following are some representative questions that I feel are frequently asked by users, so I'll summarize them.

Which VPS provider are you using to run the Trilium Notes server?

I'm using Racknerd now. It's insainly cheap. And very suitable to host Trilium Server.

Racknerd's promotions seem to be ongoing, and you can always purchase them. If you're interested, you might want to give it a try. The links include an affiliate code, which you can remove if you prefer.

I've tested Trilium's server program, and it typically consumes around 150MB of memory. So, the cheapest level would be sufficient, which costs only $10 per year. If you find the storage is not enough for you, you can try the slightly more expensive option, which is usually less than $20 per year and can provide you with about 30GB of SSD storage.

Promotion RAM CPU SSD Bandwidth Price Purchase
2024 Chinese New Year 1G 1 Core 15G 2T/Month $10.99/Year Link
2024 Chinese New Year 1.5G 1 Core 25G 4T/Month $16.88/Year Link
2024 New Year 768M 1 Core 21G 1T/Month $11.49/Year Link
2024 New Year 2G 1 Core 35G 2.5T/Month $17.38/Year Link
2023 Black Friday 768M 1 Core 15G 1T/Month $10.18/Year Link
2023 Black Friday 2G 1 Core 30G 2.5T/Month $16.98/Year Link

You can also choose other VPS providers, but remember to back up your data. Data is priceless. Make sure to perform backups just in case, and keep it in mind.

Some Questions Regarding Domain Names

How to Enable HTTPS Encryption?

In general, HTTP requests accessed through ports are plaintext. If you need to use HTTPS encryption, it must be used in conjunction with the domain.

Where Did You Purchase Your Domain?

I purchased my domain from Namesilo, and the prices are quite reasonable. Feel free to give it a try if you're interested. Below is the link with an affiliate tag; you can remove it if you prefer. Additionally, there is a coupon code nriver that can save you $1 on your first domain purchase.

How to Apply for a Website Certificate?

As for website certificates, you can use the free acme.sh tool. For specific instructions, you can refer to the acme.sh documentation on certificate issuance.

Why my translation is not working?

If you have run the original version of the Trilium program and there is a cache of the English version in your system, please follow these steps:

  1. Close Trilium.
  2. On Windows, delete the directory C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Trilium Notes.
  3. On Linux, delete the directory ~/.config/Trilium Notes/.
  4. Restart Trilium, and it will be in your translated language.

Where is the Note Database?

Default Paths for Client Databases

  • Windows: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\trilium-data
  • Linux: /home/Username/.local/share/trilium-data
  • Mac: /Users/Username/Library/ApplicationSupport/trilium-data

Default Path for Server Database

  • Linux Server: /home/Username/trilium-data
  • Docker: In the trilium-data folder in the same directory as docker-compose.yml

How to Change the Database Location?

You can refer to the client's built-in trilium-portable.sh or trilium-portable.bat to run it in a portable manner. To change the database location, simply modify the database path in the file.

If you want to experience the latest original features, it is recommended to use this method.
