Minimal notes app with rich text formatting.

What it is behind the app ?

This app is built using Angular platform with PouchDB to storing your local data on browser and CouchDB to sync notes with your account.

  • That's part of fun setting up a bi-directional and continuous replication, so as soon as we make a change to our local data it will be reflected in the remote database, and as soon as we make a change to the remote data it will be replicated in the local data. So wherever your have logged in will sync up with immediatly.
  • 📝 To create a note CKEditor5 document editor is configured.
  • 📖 For listing down all notes in dashboard I've used Angular2gridster which helps to provide easy configurable and manageable grid layout.
  • 🌄 And last thing Ant Design for Angular is a set of high quality components and rich, interactive user interfaces.
  • 😶 Opps... wait what about authentication & signup yeahh the core part, don't forget 👉 For that I've used Superlogin package a Powerful authentication for APIs and single page apps using the CouchDB.
  • We just need to setup NodeJS server, all big task like creation of private db for user, registration, authentication, logout, forgot password many more... all will be taken care by superlogin, We just need to make express instance up & running with couchdb configurations.
  • Cool... I think I'm done 😎.
  • One more thing It's PWA, a service worker is a script that runs in the web browser and manages caching for an application. Done not much... 🙊 ...
