Simplenote text editor is now open source on iOS, macOS and Android

Posted on Posted in 2016 Business Opportunities For You, What's Trending Now


Simplenote is a free text editor for Windows and Linux with support for Markdown, as well as syncing across multiple platforms. Now, Automattic, the developer behind WordPress and Simplenote, has made every version of the app available as open source software. That covers iOS, Android, MacOS, Windows and Linux.

Today’s announcement is good news for people who enjoy Simplenote’s interface, unlimited storage and syncing, easy publishing functionality, but want to customize it further to suit their needs.

The code is on GitHub, licensed under GPLv2. It’s hard to say what could really be improved about the app, but it’s more than possible that it could do those core functions more securely or efficiently, or some custom versions suitable for programming; the app’s basic features make it easy to work on multiple systems and share your files online.

Notably, the server-side code is not being open-sourced, so that part remains in Automattic’s control. For now, you won’t be able to totally clone the service onto your own servers.

If you haven’t tried Simplenote, you really should. It’s just cloud-synced text documents, and it’s so much simpler and more lightweight than something like Evernote (which daily grows larger and more cumbersome).
