New user here !
I tried Evernote and Simplenote before Joplin. Both have immediate, realtime synchronization. Is it something possible to do with Joplin ? I started to sync with OneNote. Then I thought maybe only Joplin Cloud would allow that, but no.
Did I miss something ?
Is it something planned ?
I would really like an app with no "sync" button because it is done in real time.
Thank you for your attention !
Sorry if it was already asked before : i coudn't find this precise subject in the forum.
Joplin does this already to a degree, there are essentially two types of sync running at once.
When you press the
synchronisebutton or when the next scheduled run defined by the sync options in your settings (min 5 mins) begins. This is essentially a "full" sync where it both pulls all the changes from the target as well as publishing any changes made locally.
Whenever you edit a note or change something within Joplin it creates a sync event shortly after the changes have been saved (with a small grace period) which "pushes" the changes you just made but does not "pull" any remote changes.
Thank very much you for this answer. I had no idea for the 2nd sync type.
Nevertheless, I would be delighted with a real "instant sync / no sync button" solution. It would undoubtely make feel safer those - no dev like me - who comes from other apps )
But I guess it is not that easy to set up if it is not already done.
All the same, it would be a very good 'exclusive feature' to convince people to subscribe Joplin Cloud
I can remember in OneNote that the systems are so "smart" and carefree that you never know if it synced already. So I enabled, disabled sync and waited till the magic start happening. It was frustrating, I really wanted a simple "push now" button somewhere at that time.
