Command Line - Graceful close of Joplin

Is there a way to gracefully close Joplin from the command line?
Something like joplin --quit

Before i unmount my primary data container, i run a script asking applications to close or otherwise release resources in that container that they might be accessing. A process with open documents can either auto-save, or prompt me to save/discard before closing or releasing resources. An app like Joplin could do a final sync before closing.

Killing the process should be fine, as the app is made so that any service that's interrupted can be safely resumed on restart.

Thank you very much @laurent. I will add click Joplin [Synchronise] to my put away steps, before then allowing my script to kill close Joplin. FYI, with Win10...

  • taskkill JoplinPortable.exe with or without force option:
    • sends termination signal to one process, but has no visible effect
  • taskkill Joplin.exe WITHOUT force option:
    • minimizes GUI (still available from system tray)
  • taskkill Joplin.exe WITH force option:
    • seems to kill all processes (with system tray icon eventually disappearing)
  • forgetting to sync before put away...
    • eg. force close Joplin before final sync and go mobile without latest changes
    • later on, restart Jopin and allow sync - results in notes properly updated - YEAH
    • editing same note on both devices whilst not following correct procedure, get the usual conflict scenario to deal with, which is obviously a naturally occurring artefact of any stochastic process, and no fault of Joplin.
