How do you take and manage notes?
Don't laugh at me but I use Notepad++ for quick notes but I retired one of the laptops I had been using at work and installed pop!_os on it. I was going through the app store and found Joplin. It's open source, has apps for linux, mac, windows, android, and ios. The notes can be synced to your nextcloud or you can just use it locally on your device. Oh, and it has markdown support!

@humptydumpty Joplin I like, except that the .md filenames are meaningless.
Frankly, I love https://ulysses.app for all notes, Markdown is decent, export options are quality, tweakable, instant sync via iCloud. Not FOSS but for notes on everything from Tweet ideas to letters, books, creative, whatever I write goes into that.
Just one of those things that I must have tried every alternative out there but the attention to detail and pure writing tools in Ulysses was the end of my search.

I use Roam Research and it's nice for notes, but it's expensive, not self-hosted, and not foss.
There is also Logseq, which is foss roam research alternative that syncs to github that I've tried and like. It's not quite as polished, but it's very new, and imo would be worth it to gain self-hosting. One of the things I was hoping to do when I decided to try cloudron was wrap up logseq into a cloudron app and publish it. But to fully connect the dots here, I'd prefer if it synced to gitea on my cloudron instead which I don't think it currently supports.
@luckow Dear Thank's a lot!
- getpocket and wallabag seems to be similar, right?
@jeau nvALT seems to be similar to "Note", right? Zotero similar to Scrivener, right? Zotero seems to be only for Desktop/Mac, right?
I'll check this page.
About Ulysses, me too I use Ulysses but problem is missing table management. For this, I purchased iaWriter, but of course Ulysses is more usable, specially arrange content on right bars.
@infogulch Logseq seems to be minimal and with a polish UX.

nvALT is very basic relative to Notes. It is a clone of Notational Velocity witch the killer feature is an original interface focused on incremental search. The same area is used both for creating notes and searching. I.e., in the process of entering the title for a new note, related notes appear below, letting user file information there if they choose. Likewise, if a search reveals nothing, one need simply press return to create a note with the appropriate title.
Zotero is not dedicated to note-taking but to collecting and sharing references. It is however possible to associate notes to them. Zotero is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
