The note taking app that doesn't suck. Made under the Mykonian sun.

The goal of this project is to provide a solid note taking app with just the core functionality. There won't be any fancy unnecessary features such as a chat. It basically meets the one requirement: Taking and managing private notes.

What Mykonote offers:

  • A solid richtext editor which works properly without ruining the formatting
  • Task lists (aka. todo lists)
  • Mobile support
  • A mobile app
  • Pseudo offline support, so you don't lose data when the connection is bad or even missing. The next time the internet is up again your edits will be synced to the server.
  • A simple and fast user experience
  • An always available and easy to use search
  • A donkey logo
  • Free and open source software. There is no vendor lock-in and there will never be any weird business going on with your data.

Development setup

To get the application started the standard rails setup routine can be executed.

$ bin/setup

You can now start the application and give it a try at localhost:3000. There's a demo user with the password asdfasdf.

$ rake start


For the capybara e2e tests headless firefox / geckodriver is used.


For generating the changelog lerna-changelog is used.

To set this up locally you'll need to create the file .lerna-changelog-github-token containing a GitHub access token (with just the public_repo scope).

To create the new changelog entries just issue the following command:

$ npm run changelog
