Exporting multiple notes

I am testing out Joplin’s “export” feature, and can only export a single note at a time. Is that by design (ie Joplin only will export one at a time), or could I be doing something wrong?

I would like to be able to keep a tagged journal, with each entry tagged by project, and to then be able to pull up all entries with a particular tag and export in one PDF file (or txt or markdown, but PDF appears to be what is supported). This would let me easily report activities in individual projects. Is this possible?


I have found another solution, but cannot delete the original post sorry. Don’t waste time investigating this for my sake - mods feel free to delete this, or leave it if the answer would be useful to others. Thanks.

@sjdennis, what was the solution eventually?

I found that jrnl would do exactly what I was looking for with tagging and reporting. It’s just a journaling app though so doesn’t have the functionality of Joplin, but does what I was looking for with this specific question.

That’s no really a solution for Joplin users.

I would like an option to export all or selected notes as well, if only for an unencrypted backup from time to time.

I am also interested in this feature-
to be able to export a notebook to a single PDF document would be very useful for archiving.

It would indeed be good if it was built-in. In the meantime you can use the CLI app do this yourself, for example by exporting the notes to Markdown, then converting that to PDF using something like markdown-pdf. Of course, you’d need to write a small script to do all this.

Ability to view all notes in a clean view will be great to have as a feature in Joplin.
Meanwhile, I have written a small php script to create a web view of all your notes.

Hope this helps someone.

I have a python script that spits the contents of joplin into a directory structure.
You can find it here, https://gitlab.com/dfaultkey/joplin-export.

This is a modified version of a tool provided by @stavros, which produces static pages from joplin notes. Here's his repo link, https://gitlab.com/stavros/notes/
