There was a moment where I wanted to take a really quick note without having to go through the hassle of creating a note in Notes. I had my browser open but there weren't any light-weight note taking applications that allowed you to use HTML and Markdown that I knew of. So I came up with the concept of Notus.

What it does

Notus is a web app that allows you to create notes and format it using HTML and Markdown. It automatically saves every 10 seconds so no more "I forgot to save".

How I built it

I used Node.js (with the help of Passport.js, Express.js, and RethinkDB) to create Notus.

Challenges I ran into

  • Rerendering sidebar without refreshing the page
  • Super messy code

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • Creating a full account login and registration system. :D

What I learned

  • Passport.js
  • MongoDB

What's next for Notus

  • Expanding platforms
  • Public notes
