Joplin Web - Web application companion for Joplin

See also my comment in Messy content on NextCloud : how can we come to have joplin integrated into nextcloud for web access ?
I fear your python code will not work in multi-user environment - somehow it would need to know about the profile to be used upon launching the web client ?

Lot of topics…

  1. nextcloud : I don’t use it, so I don’t plan to do anything for it. And that’d be too much work to do something for it now, may be later (see below).
  2. so this is an app for ourself, can’t be used by other guys except you. Why ? Because as long as we won’t have a complet Joplin API, I just could use the Joplin terminal command for my own profile.
    So as you point, actually the app need to know your profile path to be useful.
  3. future:
    After that, If some contributions would come next month (for the Hacktoberfest event https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/ ), that will be a pleasure.
    And who knows, if a complet API for Joplin come, I’ll be glad to adapt the app and add the multi user support.

Nothing is lost everything is possible :sunglasses:

OK, thanks

A little update :slight_smile:



I made tab for displaying notes/tasks


tab to switch from note to task

Looking great @foxmask!

This is exactly what I need, but because I’m not a geek with my own server, I use a simple web space with php and the wonderful Nextcloud, that simply works out of the box. But there are no real OneNote alternatives except Joplin and so I’m here.

So a nextcloud app of this would be what I need. But it looks really good.

@Chromax, do you use this php thing locally on Windows? Is it something like XAMPP?

I have a simple web space from a provider for some bucks a month. There is only php and MySQL available. I was very astonished how much is possible with nextcloud without a big server platform to get rid of Google and Microsoft cloud stuff. And it’s damn easy, even noobs like me can extract the nextcloud zip and start the index.php.

With the client apps I can now use my web space like Onedrive or Dropbox, as a OneNote alternative I use Joplin, but there is no client for any OS, so a web interface would be helpful.

Very nice work! this is what I need

With the back end server, do I still need a WebDAV server to sync with iOS client?
or is it that the back end can be used alone to both serve web front end and sync with mobile clients ?

The webapp is just another way to manage his notes, so all the needed requirements for joplin-deskop are the same for joplin-web.

Now the app is able to find local resources - here is a comparisation between joplin and joplin-web


a docker image is now available.
build it

docker build -t foxmask/joplin-web .

then launch it like this

docker run -it --network host -p 8001:8001 --rm --name foxmask-joplin-web-1 --mount type=bind,source="/home/foxmask/.config/joplin-desktop/database.sqlite",target=/home/foxmask/.config/joplin-desktop/database.sqlite foxmask/joplin-web

after that docker image, I’m working on a technical migration you can follow :wink:

Hi, i’m looking for a way to publish the project the easiest way
So If you have knowledge to build a appimage (and/or the other OS supported by Joplin) let met know. I try to “package” the project from that folder only https://github.com/foxmask/joplin-web/tree/master/joplin_web

May be that would be a possibility to use Joplin from Nextcloud ?


Until yesterday, to be able to use Joplin-Web, We had to install it on a workstation (because we need to access to the webclipper service)

Now, joplin can be run headless with:

joplin --profile ~/.config/joplin-desktop/ server start
Server is already running on port 41184

just after having update the joplin terminal version by

NPM_CONFIG_PREFIX=~/.joplin-bin npm install -g joplin

This allow you, now, to install the project on a dedicated server near your joplin resources :wink:

Thanks to @laurent !
