Implementation Details

Notes

A user has the ability to create/save/edit notes using the React Quill rich text editor. Each note contains a id, body, bodypreview, title, created_at and updated_at. Notes are stored in the body as raw HTML tagged text and a stripped preview of that is stored in the bodypreview of the note. Each note on creation is stored in a notebook.

Notebooks

Users have the ability to organize their notes in notebooks. Upon account creation, a default_notebook is generated for the user. All notes are stored in here unless a user specifically creates a new notebook and generates notes in that specific notebook. A notebook contains a author_id, title, lock (status that is given to a default_notebook to prevent deletion), created_at and updated_at. Users have the ability to edit/delete a notebook from within a modal.

Tags

Users have the ability to further organize their notes via tags. tags have a name and are associated to notes by a taggings joins table.

Rich text Editor

NeverBlank utlizes React Quill to allow the user to format and save rich formatted text. The rich formatted text is saved into a note as html tagged text.
