Opus is a minimal note-taking application.
It aims to be a mix between a text-editor and code-editor. It reads and writes
.note files from your native file system. This means it works well with tools like Dropbox for syncing files across your devices.
Much like a code-editor, Opus opens folders and allows you to edit the files inside. You can have multiple windows open, each with a different folder.
🖋Editing: Supports rich text editing with all the features you'd expect. 📄Uses Files: Uses tangible files in JSON format, not inaccessible databases. 🌙Dark Mode: Includes a dark mode for late night writing. ⚙️Customizable: The sidebar and footer can be hidden for a more focused experience. 📂Multiple Projects: Opus supports opening multiple folders at once. ✨Simple: Opus has only the features you need.
You can download the latest macOS binary from releases.
Alternatively, you can run Opus locally from the command line:
$ git clone https://github.com/pacocoursey/Opus.git $ cd opus $ npm install $ npm start
