Markdown notes for Mac.
From simple notes and todo lists, to articles and journals, to wikis and second brain — no accounts, no subscription, no vendor lock-in — coming to macOS in 2023.
A clean and familiar writing experience combined with editing tools that are invisible when you don't need them and powerful when you do.
Make ten edits at the same time, not one edit ten times.
Easily select the current element or any of its parents.
Context-aware completions and visual hints.
No reformatting on open, no transformations on copy or paste.
Speed up common things like opening files, searching, or calling commands — Nota quick dialogs use fuzzy matching to show you better results in fewer keystrokes.
Nota supports the popular [[ wiki ]] syntax for linking notes and makes it easy to build personal wikis, team knowledge bases, or something like a Second Brain or a Zettelkasten.
