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
What's next for Notus
- Expanding platforms
- Public notes
