Cenotes command line application and libraries

Project description

C(ryptographical) E(xpendable) Notes

Command Line Interface

What is this?

This is a cli project to support encryption/decryption of expendable notes

What this isn’t

UI/Frontend/Backend. This is a cli project. Frontend and backend solutions are different projects. The reason for this is to allow flexibility in frontend / backend choice and to avoid huge bundle projects.

  • A backend project that uses these libraries can be found here
  • A frontend project that communicates with the backend can be found here


  • Symmetric encryption of notes using the pynacl project
  • Local encryption & decryption of a note
  • Support to store a note to a cenotes server instance
  • Support to fetch a note from a cenotes server instance
  • Support for custom cenotes server url
