It would be nice to have some kind of attachment support to add an image or another file to a note

If the markdown renderer would support [image](url)-format, one could upload an image via drag and drop. The file gets a UUID as name and will be stored in the same folder where the corresponding note file is. After a successfull upload, the notes app can create the markdown with [original-filename-without-extension](generated-uuid.extension) and the image gets rendered.

Any news? Nowadays we take notes with much more content than just text, especially since we all have mobile devices with cameras. I think is a rather basic feature.
There's a desktop application for creating MD notes, Qownnotes, that creates a file named "Media" inside the folder of the note and saves there all the pictures we embed; then, in the note, there's just a link to the corresponding file in that "Media" folder. Seems rather uncomplicated (from a non programmer point of view, heheh).

The other day I was reading the issues of this application and saw here that @stefan-niedermann said that the server app was lacking an API that would make possible media support for the mobile app.
I thought Hr. Niedermann was referring to the Nextxloud server app, so there I went to bother NC developers to ask them for media support. @nickvergessen kindly clarified my confusion telling me that is was an NC Notes app issue, not an NC server's, so, here I'm back.

Since I see that @korelstar has already taken this issue into account there's no more necessity to insist on this feature, but I'd like to comment an idea from @jancborchardt that he's taken from the IOS app iA Writer, an idea to be considered once NC Notes web app will support media content, of course.
The normal procedure to insert, for example, an image in a Markdown note would be using ![Alt text](image_url), but as Mr. Borchardt comments about iA Writer, said app saves all the attached files in the same folder than the .md files, and you just have to type a sort of path to the attached filename, something like /image.png (no dot before, just the slash) and there you go.
I commented to him that the idea is nice, but would be better with a variant: To me, having all the media files mixed up in the same folder of the .md files can become a real mess if you have many notes with a few images each and need to do some file browsing in your notes folders. I prefer the storing structure that Qownnotes follows: it creates a folder named Media inside each notes folder, and then it stores all the multimedia content there, so, when you browse through your notes folders, yu see all your MD files together, and if want to open or edit any, there you have them clearly at your sight, and then you have said Media folder with all the pictures and such appart, wich seems clearer and more organized to me.
I think that if the app could read /filenameand "translate" internally to media/filename it could display the attachments for each note withouth making our notes folders a messy "dump" for text files, images, audios... whatever, and at the same time keep that easy syntax.

In any case, whatever is the file storing model, I'm with Mr. Borchardt that the /filenamething is much handier than the habitual MD tag. I hope you may consider it.

Regards.

Yep, can only repeat what @eemantsal mentioned about iA writer. They use the /filename.png syntax to directly integrate images from the same folder (or subfolders).

I understand that my habits are different, yet usually I do NOT keep my images and files in the same folder of my notes.

So for me it would be good to have the possibility to refer to any file stored in my Nextcloud instance via a simple syntax.

A big usability bonus would be a tooltip that helps generating the syntax (a file selector that provides as output the right syntax).

Two further improvements:

  • autocomplection that proposes the previously used path when I use the syntax to cite a file a second time in a single note
  • a way for the app to memorize the last used path for that note; in this way if I reopen the note and reuse the file picker, I get the previously used path as a suggestion

@Spartachetto development always needs to happen in small steps. :) And the first step is as we describe. Supporting images which are somewhere else is something for a further step.

And an image outside of your Notes folder could for example be referred like

![](../Pictures/hedgehog.jpg)

And combined with the #200 context-based formatting popover we can have a filepicker for inserting images. :)

But all with time – and resources. Any contribution is welcome, or donations on Bountysource towards the issues: https://www.bountysource.com/issues/43586252-support-for-attachments-images

Are there any updates for this? Eg. can I somehow add images to a note that gets updated to something like a "resource" folder or such within notes?
