Welcome to Joplin! 🗒️

Joplin is a free, open source note taking and to-do application, which helps you write and organise your notes, and synchronise them between your devices. The notes are searchable, can be copied, tagged and modified either from the applications directly or from your own text editor. The notes are in Markdown format. Joplin is available as a 💻 desktop, 📱 mobile and 🔡 terminal application.

The notes in this notebook give an overview of what Joplin can do and how to use it. In general, the three applications share roughly the same functionalities; any differences will be clearly indicated.

Joplin is divided into three parts

Joplin has three main columns:

  • Sidebar contains the list of your notebooks and tags, as well as the synchronisation status.
  • Note List contains the current list of notes - either the notes in the currently selected notebook, the notes in the currently selected tag, or search results.
  • Note Editor is the place where you write your notes in Markdown, with a viewer showing what the note will look like. You may also use an external editor to edit notes. For example, if you like WYSIWYG editors, you can use something like Typora as an external editor and it will display the note as well as any embedded images.

Writing notes in Markdown

Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. Joplin supports a Github-flavoured Markdown syntax with a few variations and additions.

In general, while Markdown is a markup language, it is meant to be human readable, even without being rendered. This is a simple example (you can see how it looks in the viewer panel):


Heading

Sub-heading

Paragraphs are separated by a blank line. Text attributes italic, bold and monospace are supported. You can create bullet lists:

  • apples
  • oranges
  • pears

Or numbered lists:

  1. wash
  2. rinse
  3. repeat

This is a link and, finally, below is a horizontal rule:


A lot more is possible including adding code samples, math formulae or checkbox lists - see the Markdown documentation for more information.

Organising your notes

With notebooks 📔

Joplin notes are organised into a tree of notebooks and sub-notebooks.

  • On desktop, you can create a notebook by clicking on New Notebook, then you can drag and drop them into other notebooks to organise them as you wish.
  • On mobile, press the "+" icon and select "New notebook".
  • On terminal, press :mn

With tags 🏷️

The second way to organise your notes is using tags:

  • On desktop, right-click on any note in the Note List, and select "Edit tags". You can then add the tags, separating them by commas.
  • On mobile, open the note and press the "⋮" button and select "Tags".
  • On terminal, type :help tag for the available commands.

Importing and exporting notes ↔️

Importing from Evernote

Joplin was designed as a replacement for Evernote and so can import complete Evernote notebooks, as well as notes, tags, images, attached files and note metadata (such as author, geo-location, etc.) via ENEX files.

To import Evernote data, first export your Evernote notebooks to ENEX files as described here. Then, on desktop, do the following: Open File > Import > ENEX and select your file. The notes will be imported into a new separate notebook. If needed they can then be moved to a different notebook, or the notebook can be renamed, etc. Read more about Evernote import.

Importing from other apps

Joplin can also import notes from many other apps as well as from Markdown or text files.

Exporting notes

Joplin can export to the JEX format (Joplin Export file), which is an archive that can contain multiple notes, notebooks, etc. This is a format mostly designed for backup purposes. You may also export to other formats such as plain Markdown files, to JSON or to PDF. Find out more about exporting notes on the official website.

Synchronising your notes 🔄

One of the goals of Joplin was to avoid being tied to any particular company or service, whether it is Evernote, Google or Microsoft. As such the synchronisation is designed without any hard dependency to any particular service. You basically choose the service you prefer among those supported, setup the configuration, and the app will be able to sync between your computers or mobile devices.

The supported cloud services are the following:

Setting up Dropbox synchronisation

Select "Dropbox" as the synchronisation target in the config screen (it is selected by default). Then, to initiate the synchronisation process, click on the "Synchronise" button in the sidebar and follow the instructions.

Setting up Nextcloud synchronisation

Nextcloud is a self-hosted, private cloud solution. It can store documents, images and videos but also calendars, passwords and countless other things and can sync them to your laptop or phone. As you can host your own Nextcloud server, you own both the data on your device and infrastructure used for synchronisation. As such it is a good fit for Joplin.

To set it up, go to the config screen and select Nextcloud as the synchronisation target. Then input the WebDAV URL (to get it, go to your Nextcloud page, click on Settings in the bottom left corner of the page and copy the URL). Note that it has to be the full URL, so for example if you want the notes to be under /Joplin, the URL would be something like https://example.com/remote.php/webdav/Joplin (note that "/Joplin" part). And make sure to create the "/Joplin" directory in Nextcloud. Finally set the username and password. If it does not work, please see this explanation for more details.

Setting up OneDrive or WebDAV synchronisation

OneDrive and WebDAV are also supported as synchronisation services. Please see the export documentation for more information.

Using End-To-End Encryption

Joplin supports end-to-end encryption (E2EE) on all the applications. E2EE is a system where only the owner of the data can read it. It prevents potential eavesdroppers - including telecom providers, internet providers, and even the developers of Joplin from being able to access the data. Please see the End-To-End Encryption Tutorial for more information about this feature and how to enable it.

Tips 💡

The first few notes should have given you an overview of the main functionalities of Joplin, but there's more it can do. See below for some of these features and how to get more help using the app:

Web clipper

The Web Clipper is a browser extension that allows you to save web pages and screenshots from your browser. To start using it, open the Joplin desktop application, go to the Web Clipper Options and follow the instructions.

More info on the official website: https://joplinapp.org/clipper/

Attachments

Any kind of file can be attached to a note. In Markdown, links to these files are represented as an ID. In the note viewer, these files, if they are images, will be displayed or, if they are other files (PDF, text files, etc.) they will be displayed as links. Clicking on this link will open the file in the default application.

Images can be attached either by clicking on "Attach file" or by pasting (with Ctrl+V or Cmd+V) an image directly in the editor, or by drag and dropping an image.

More info about attachments: https://joplinapp.org#attachments--resources

Search

Joplin supports advanced search queries, which are fully documented on the official website: https://joplinapp.org#searching

Alarms

An alarm can be associated with any to-do. It will be triggered at the given time by displaying a notification. To use this feature, see the documentation: https://joplinapp.org#notifications

Markdown advanced tips

Joplin uses and renders Github-flavoured Markdown with a few variations and additions.

For example, tables are supported:

| Tables | Are | Cool |
| ------------- |:-------------:| -----:|
| col 3 is | right-aligned | $1600 |
| col 2 is | centered | $12 |
| zebra stripes | are neat | $1 |

You can also create lists of checkboxes. These checkboxes can be ticked directly in the viewer, or by adding an "x" inside:

  • [ ] Milk
  • [ ] Eggs
  • [x] Beer

Math expressions can be added using the KaTeX notation:

$$
f(x) = \int_{-\infty}^\infty
\hat f(\xi)\,e^{2 \pi i \xi x}
\,d\xi
$$

Various other tricks are possible, such as using HTML, or customising the CSS. See the Markdown documentation for more info - https://joplinapp.org#markdown
