Secret Notes

This project is a clone of privnote. I did not like how a few things work with privnote so I decided to make my own version of it

Here's how this website is different than privnote:

  • You can set the title of the note
  • You can set how many reads are allowed
  • You can set any time of expiry
  • You can set the amount of reads as well as expiry time on the same note
  • Note is not destroyed if the person enters a wrong password

  • Change CSRF_TRUSTED_ORIGINS to your domain name
