Joplin is an open source, free note taking application. Designed to be capable of replacing Evernote, Joplin is privacy conscious and can be be used without signing up for an account, but optionally supports synchronising your files with a file host of your choice and with optional end to end encryption.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install Joplin, simply use the following command:
