Notational, notes at the speed of thought.

Notational encourages you to keep your hands on the keyboard so you can create, update, and find notes really quickly. The UX is based on the popular macOS app, Notational Velocity (but not affiliated in any way).

Firebase Setup

Notational uses Firebase (it's pretty abstracted so it could change). You can spin up your own instance for testing or local development. Check out this issue for more info.

You will also need to create a settings.js file in the root directory that contains your Firebase information:

// settings.js

const ENV = {
	firebase: {
	    authDomain: "",
	    databaseURL: "",
	    storageBucket: "",
	    messagingSenderId: "XXXXXXXXXXXX"

export default ENV
global.ENV = ENV

The initial DB schema should look like the following (default_notes is the only required key-value pair):

  "default_notes" : {
    "notes" : [
	      "body" : "Hey-oh!\n\nWelcome to Notational – the fastest note-taking app on the web.\n\nNotational makes it easy to keep your hands on the keyboard so you can do things like... type notes really quickly! (See *Useful Shortcuts* above.)\n\nAlso, no need to save your work as everything you type (in this box) is ~automagically~ saved.\n\n—Tom",
	      "date_created" : "Sun Mar 05 2017 18:15:27 GMT-0500",
	      "date_modified" : "Sun Mar 05 2017 18:25:02 GMT-0500",
	      "id" : 1,
	      "name" : "Welcome (Click Me)"
  "public_notes" : {
  	// Auto created
  "users" : {
  	// Auto created
