The self hosted back-end has a lot of moving parts. Why was the decision made to use code instead of say a text file on EC2 via a simple web server? cf https://github.com/standardfile/ruby-server/wiki/Deploying-a...

Also how easy is it to use the editor API? Could you for instance create an outliner editor?

Why was the choice made to take up 2/3 screen with tags, filename leaving only 1/3 screen for a note. Vim user, so it appears awkward to view RHS of screen coming from a culturally LHS language, English?




That implementation is just one implementation that specifically uses Passenger and Nginx. So those are not necessarily dependencies of the core server logic. The actual action is mostly handled by a single controller with around 160 lines (ItemsController).

It could easily support an extension that allows saving simple text files to S3.

Can you elaborate more on your last question? Not sure what you mean by editor API.

Instead of just simple notes, could you use the API to build an outliner? cf Dave Winers fargo ~ http://fargo.io
