Notesnook is a free (as in speech) & open source note taking app focused on user privacy & ease of use. To ensure zero knowledge principles, Notesnook encrypts everything on your device using
Notesnook is our proof that privacy does not (always) have to come at the cost of convenience. Our goal is to provide users peace of mind & 100% confidence that their notes are safe and secure. The decision to go fully open source is one of the most crucial steps towards that.
This repository contains all the code required to build & use the Notesnook web, desktop & mobile clients. If you are looking for a full features list or screenshots, please check the website.

- React Native — For mobile apps we are using React Native
- NPM — listed here because we don't use Yarn or PNPM or XYZ across any of our projects.
