Joplin is a markdown cross-platform note-taking and to-do application. It is developed as an open source alternative to Evernote. It is available in various operating systems, such as Linux, Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS. It supports cloud synchronization, end-to-end encryption, web clipping, note history, note import/export, markdown editing, WYSIWYG editing, and tagging. In addition, there are many Joplin plugins that can be installed to enhance note-taking experience.


Install joplinAUR to obtain the CLI version of Joplin. To use the desktop version of Joplin running on Electron, Install joplin-desktopAUR.


Since v1.6.4, Joplin plugins can be installed directly by opening the plugin search menu under Tools > Options > Plugins. The plugin archive file will be downloaded automatically into the Joplin plugin folder ~/.config/joplin-desktop/plugins. Upon restarting the app, installed Joplin plugins will work as its intended function.

Note that plugins only work on desktop version of Joplin.
