The markdown-based note-taking app that doesn't suck.
I couldn't find a note-taking app that ticked all the boxes I'm interested in: notes are written and rendered in GitHub-flavored Markdown, no WYSIWYG, no proprietary formats, I can run a search & replace across all notes, notes support attachments, the app isn't bloated, the app has a pretty interface, tags are indefinitely nestable and can import Evernote notes (because that's what I was using before).
So I built my own.
/path/to/your/data_directory ├─┬ attachments │ ├── foo.ext │ ├── bar.ext │ └── … └─┬ notes ├── foo.md ├── bar.md └── …
No proprietary formats: Notable is just a pretty front-end for a folder structured as shown above. Notes are plain Markdown files, their metadata is stored as Markdown front matter. Attachments are also plain files, if you attach a

This is a very slick looking product for taking notes in markdown instead of wysiwyg, plaintext, etc. Open source, promising project.
Of course, built with Electron. This will be a turn off for some.
