Joplin is a free and open-source desktop and mobile note-taking application written for Unix-like (including macOS and Linux) and Microsoft Windows operating systems, as well as iOS, Android, and Linux/Windows terminals,[2] written in JavaScript. The desktop app is made using Electron, while the mobile app uses React Native.

History[edit]

Joplin is named after the ragtime composer and pianist, Scott Joplin.[3]

Cozic started work on Joplin in 2016,[4] and the first Android version was released on 28 July 2017.

The first public desktop application release was version 0.10.19, on November 20, 2017.[5][6][7]

A Web Clipper[8] for Chrome was introduced in December 2017 and the Firefox extension was released in May 2018.

A new Joplin Cloud service was introduced in 2021,[9] along with an on-premises Joplin Server application. Both products can be used to sync notes, to-dos, notebooks and note data across devices, as well as share notes or notebooks with other Joplin users, or even publish content to the web.

Features[edit]

  • Notes in markdown format
  • Markdown extension plug-ins
  • Storage in plain-text files
  • Optional client-side encryption
  • Organisation in notebooks and sub-notebooks
  • Tagging system
  • "Offline-first", notes are always accessible locally, and can be synced on demand
  • Web clipper for Firefox and Chrome
  • Note synchronization with Joplin Cloud, Nextcloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, WebDAV, or (networked) file system

Joplin's workflow and featureset is most often compared to Evernote.[10][11][12][13][14]
