Project description

Djaken is a complete web-based notes application for Django.


Version 2.0.2 released! (2018/12/15)

Version 2.0rc1 released! (2018/12/06)

Version 2.0b1 released! (2018/04/14)

Changes in 2.0~:

  • Replace Markdown with reStructuredText.

  • Move inline images to seperate model (DB) field, thus avoiding search and markup processing on bulky image data. It also takes away the encoded image data from the markup text.

  • GUI: several improvements (HTML templates and CSS).

  • GUI: Edit Note; change “Save and Close” button to icon and have all three save and close permutations at top and bottom of note.

  • CODING: Change ‘Generic Views’ back to regular/full Django views.

  • FIXED: Page reload after going back to unlock encrypted note re-submits encryption key (password).

  • Disable browser caching as much as possible.


  • Intuitive, simple and stream-lined user interface.

  • Login/logout of the notes application.

  • Create and edit notes in reStructuredText.

  • Attach inline images (within a note).

  • Notes can be marked ‘Not relevant’, and if so, are kept out of view by default.

  • Encrypted notes (stored in database using an AES symmetric cipher).

  • Keyword search of note title and content.

  • Sort by modified/created date.
