[Feature request] Nimbus Notes import

Nimbus Notes’ export is a JSON file and a folder of attached pictures. JSON contains various data like folders, date of creation/update, tags, geotag, link, tasks etc. The notes themselves are in HTML.

Example:

{
      "elem_type":"folder",
      "folder_id":"o1470054488x0031",
      "folder_name":"Music",
      "type":"0",
      "tags":[""],

I have ~700 notes so it’s impossible to migrate by hand and without a proper tool.

Import from Nimbus won’t be supported, however it shouldn’t be too hard to create an importer for it using the Joplin API. You’d need to know some scripting though or maybe find someone that can do it for you.
