I'm looking for something very similar to Evernote, the only thing I want that Evernote misses out, is sub-folder support, I can't create a sub-notebook which is ideally what I'd like. Sort of like confluence but not web-based.

I don't mind design too much as long as I have the sub-folder feature. So all I want is just a notes system with sub-folders; plain-text notes are sufficient.

  • @RockPaperLizard it doesn't have to - but if it does then great haha – user31456 May 12 '17 at 15:57
  • Have you check out Microsoft OneNote ? This one you can sync as well. – PROBERT May 12 '17 at 16:40
  • @PROBERT sorry for long delay - I have and didn't get on with it :( – user31456 May 15 '17 at 9:18
  • Does alternativeto.net/help? Specifically alternativeto.net/software/evernote – Mawg Sep 10 '17 at 22:33

Have you tried Cherrytree? (I just recommended it in another answer as it looks quite good).

  • has a subfolder feature,
  • is not web-based,
  • quite similar to Evernote in functionalities (from my observation).

Maybe it can work for you, have a look.

  • Thank you I will check it out! (sorry for late reply) – user31456 Nov 24 '17 at 12:33

TagSpaces, because who doesn't want an open-sourced, powerful and visually appealing approach to notes?

Let's take a look at the features:

  1. Cross-platform file tagging, annotation and finding;
  2. Note taking and information management;
  3. Browse folders and preview your files in one application

But further to my recommendation is supported extensions- I quite often use the ZIP viewer for my arch backups - and there are a few other file types you can view.

Lastly, let's talk about the functionality:

  1. Color scheme;
  2. Check box, hyperlinks, highlighting and tagging by default;
  3. Customization view tab

The key functions of the editor are (to me):

  • Image Support;
  • Code formatting for notes;
  • Custom tags and search features and;
  • Check Box / Table Support.

Default View

But does it suit your needs?

I can't create a sub-notebook which is ideally what I'd like.

You can make as many sub-folders as you like!

Sort of like confluence but not web-based.

All local, the way it should be ;)

I don't mind design too much as long as I have the sub-folder feature.

Just wish to reiterate the fact this exists!

plain-text notes are sufficient.

....literally any text editor passes this requirement, but this does MD files too! Yay Github!
