I already have native git client and text writing application on my desktop, I don't need a web page trying to replace both. However, a simple to use mobile client with first-class git workflow support is missing.
You can't just tell us you have a non-electron app and not tell us what it is, don't leave us hanging!
 Even if you currently have no "out of line" ideas, it's very damaging to creativity to let a medium requiring self-censorship become a part of your thought process, as notes can be. The default for notes should be as private as possible.
> [...] You will no longer be able to access our suite of apps.
The try button seems to take you to a working version of the app, is the intention to make this paid at some point later?
I don't mind paying but I object to those applications that make it appear like they're free and then once you've started using them ask you for payment on the basis you were only on a "premium trial" when you start.
Each note is saved as a markdown file in GitHub and can be searched and linked easily from the zk cli.
I'm not sure you can charge people for what amounts to a <textarea> that makes a git commit. Seems like you're sharing this a bit early, since there's only one app despite the FAQ sounding like there's a whole ecosystem.
Out of curiosity, if you had to pick your biggest annoyance with GitJournal, what would it be?
Disclaimer: I'm the author, looking to improve GitJournal.
I'm literally working right now on removing more of the code which assumed all notes would be in Markdown format, and make GitJournal open to supporting any.
If you try it out, please let me know how it did for your use case. I'm just getting started with OrgMode.
As well as while i like .txt, i can't embed images and links and for me that's a requirement sadly. Though i like the idea for purely text only note taking
A recommendation; I would think that those who this format would work really well for should have the ability to reference an image or video and have that as a "hidden" uploaded item (so that you could choose from the list of items in that folder) and have it referenced from that document
Im the creator of Dendron. we’re an open source, markdown based, git backed note taking tool built in to vscode. the nice thing about being file based is that interop comes (almost) for free which means as a user, you can switch between tools without worrying about lock in
It lets you run a Wiki out of a vault in your drive, which can be moved to a new machine or exported as PDF/HTML
It might worth a try for those who prefer less features
I've been evangelizing apps like Obsidian, Logseq, and Foam these days because note-taking has been evolving quite a bit with different PKMS methodologies and the whole zettelkasten movement (that's a bit of a rabbit hole though).
plain text markdown is imo the place to be.
