Paperwork, its own open source Evernote

Paperwork Currently there are many programs that help us improve our day to day. But many of these programs are proprietary even though they are free. Like for example Evernote, a great program to organize ourselves and take notes but which is exclusive.

Currently we do not have any free version of Evernote so many are looking for alternatives that meet this objective. A German developer named Marius, tired of looking for alternatives to Evernote and not agreeing with OneNote and Google Keep, decided to create his own program in the Cloud. This solution is called Paperwork, a web application that can be installed on any personal server for free and offers the basics of a note program.

Paperwork is a great development that offers us the possibility of taking notes, synchronizing them, sorting them by tags, attaching documents, etc ... But on the other hand, we do not have the possibility of installing it on several devices and that they work at the same time or advanced options such as the ocr of Evernote or the compatibility of these programs on other platforms. Although the latter will be easy to fix since there is a Paperwork API to solve this gap.

Paperwork is a web application that can run on our personal server

In addition, Paperwork, unlike other programs, is totally Open Source and we can upload it to our server for free, although if we are not sure we can always resort to demo that the creator has enabled to give us an idea of ​​how Paperwork works.

Paperwork is really very interesting, but it is surprising that nowadays there is no application to take notes that reaches the level of Evernote and that is Open Source. If there is Paperwork and Tomboy but both have the problem that they are not on most platforms such as OS X, Windows, Android or iOS, but can be consulted through a web application or an application. The truth is that to solve this, Paperworks represents a start, but certainly does not reach the level of its competitors. So if you are looking for an efficient and proprietary note application that no one has access to, the answer is Paperworks.
