LocalNote让你能够像使用本地文件一样使用印象笔记,支持markdown语法。Use your evernote like local file system in all platforms (markdown supported)

Project Description

Chinese Version

LocalNote enables you to use evernote in the local-file way.

Popular markdown format is supported and can be perfectly performed in evernote (the download format will remain as .md instead of .html).

Majority of notes in evernote can also be translated into markdown format easily.

LocalNote is also available on three platforms, which ensure that linux users can also have a good experience with evernote.

You are welcomed to join this project on Github.
