Do you recall when this was? This kind of feedback is highly unusual for us. Most users love SN precisely for its reliable sync. Our syncing engine underwent large-scale changes in June/July of this year to solve an edge case with opening out-of-date clients. If you experienced any issues after this date with updated clients, I'd be very surprised, but would love to hear more if you can spare a moment.

The only other issue we have heard of precisely one other time has to do with Firefox pinned tabs + some assortment of Firefox browser extensions. To be clear, any reproducible issues with syncing are 100% fixed as quickly as possible.

Lastly, regarding our API for syncing, while our encryption specification is described in plain text detail, you'd have to inspect our source to see how syncing works.






I hadn't heard of StandardNotes before so I just went to the StandardNotes website. The explanation there is decent, but why no screenshot(s)? I had to go to Google Images to see what it actually looks like.

Out of curiosity - which Firefox browser extensions? I typically have SN open on my work PC in a Firefox pinned tab, and at home in a pin tabbed, and then on and off on mobile. I've never lost any data, but sometimes I'll have to refresh the tab for the right hand pane to load when just opening Firefox.

Is it possible to use VIM as a text editor in the terminal with SN? Or are users required to use a text editors supported by SN? This seems like an application I'm looking for but I can't ditch my vimrc and plugins

Yes, you can use https://github.com/tannercollin/standardnotes-fs to edit your notes with vim.

Wow, this might actually be what I need! Thanks!

Thanks for the follow up.

This was July or August of 2018 and Chrome on the desktop and Android.


Ah yeah, it would most likely have been the reason we updated our syncing engine in June of 2019. I don't believe you'd experience any of the same issues today.
