Hello, I am a Evernote user and want to migrate to Joplin. Want to migrate to Joplin because of its potential and open source.
I have a question regarding to which vendor service is reliable to use for synchronisation. I went through quite a bit of suggestions from the site like: onedrive (doesn’t work), dropbox, Nextcloud suggests us.cloudamo.com (It worked for couple days but the site is currently down for the day. I saw the domain name is listed for sale in one market so it is not a reliable host).
I also checked most of the vendors from webdav list in Joplin site. Most of services are either self host (I have web hosting service but don’t whether it works with Joplin) or need to pay (I already have lots of onedrive space, google drive and other paid storage. If it is something incurring cost, I may as well stay with Evernote.)
From browsing through this forum, found a lot of post about sync issues. Seems like it is one of the weakest of this product.
Any suggestion who to use for sync? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Personally I have only used dropbox so it's the only sync method I can vouch for. But I've never had any sync issues and have been using Joplin for ~2 years.
Honestly if this is the difference for you, I would recommend sticking with Evernote. It's a commercial tool and comes with the support and stability that you would expect from that. Plus you can't have any migration issues if you don't have to migrate
Thanks for your reply. I will give dropbox a try. After using Evernote for a while, there are certain features I don’t like. Even a lot of users complain about those features, Evernote has no intention to change or provide alternate solutions. That is one of the reason why I am looking for alternatives. Thanks for your advice.
I understand people do complain. If I see a lot of people raising concerns on one area of my product, I would put more focus on understanding where the issues are coming from. If it is user or configuration issue, I will address it via improving documentation or training materials. In the long run, it saves time on support, minimize user frustration and product reputation. Just my 2 cents. 8)
I’ve been using Fastmail for some years now, as a secondary email service. I’ve only realized recently they also offer WebDAV access and I decided to use it with Joplin the last few days. It works as it should with Joplin without any fuss.
The best & free solution I’ve been using for the last 6+ months without any issue has been drivehq. I am currently using the free tier which is more than sufficient for my needs, but even if I end up using more than this, its hardly $3 per month for the extra storage… And havent seen any down time till now. Its super simple to setup as well! Hope this helps
For a while now, I’ve been using TransIP Stack (https://www.transip.nl/stack/) over WebDAV without any issues.
