I’m trying to make a list of the top 5 features of Joplin, the features that really define the app. This would be useful if I ever recreate the website - in that case I could articulate the front page around these 5 features. Also good when/if I need to introduce Joplin somewhere.
For me that would be this:
Data privacy and ownership - it’s 100% your data in the sense that the complete data is on your local machine, and can be exported to various formats. Also possibility to self-host sync and use E2EE for extra privacy. And no ads, no tracking.
It’s available (almost) everywhere - you can sync to desktop, mobile and cli. You can clip on the browser.
It’s open source with an active community - unlike a commercial application it won’t disappear overnight just because a company felt it was no longer profitable.
It’s easy to use (or it tries to be) and can be extended with Markdown plugins. Already supports math formlaes, Mermaid diagrams and more.
Any other suggestions? In your day to day use, what do you see as the core features of Joplin?
