Looking for an alternative to Google Keep? I just set up a self-hosted server for standardnotes.org and I find the cross platform client apps to be a great replacement.

@jeffalyanak That's the third time I've heard it referenced. And it looks good!

@jalcine
Yeah, it's worth checking out, even if you just use local storage (no sync) or their reference server.

@jeffalyanak

I just threw some money at them and use their servers. It’s encrypted on the client side so my notes are (probably) safe even if they get h4xx0r3d.

@jeffalyanak My reaction: "what the heck is google keep?"

I've been happy with the notes within nextcloud; but then I rarely put notes on the net - when I do, I tend to need to share them with others (simple documentation, shared todo lists, etc.)

I guess I'm so disconnected from Google services I don't even know, or look, at what they're putting out now.

@Truck
Well, Keep is from 2013 or so, so I used it back the before I moved off of Google.

At the time there were far fewer players involved in cross-platform, cloud-based notes.

@jeffalyanak 2013. So that would be 6 years + that I have been google free; despite people insisting I had to, despite people saying that it was useless and I should just give in; and despite having to do cartwheels to avoid mixing the work insistance that we use it (2 ex-jobs used it instead of mail/office...) and my home NOT using it...

That seems like many years more than I think I've been google free but... I also still have difficulty not thinking 2000 was recent, so...

@bvtsang
I would certainly love that feature but for my personal workflow it's not make-or-break.
