Pro writing app designed for local Markdown files.
From notes and lists, to wikis and knowledge bases, to articles and books — no accounts, no subscription, no vendor lock-in.
Editor built from scratch for pros.
A clean and familiar writing experience combined with editing tools that are invisible when you don't need them and powerful when you do.
Multiple cursors, expand/shrink selection, split selection.
Move line up/down, duplicate line up/down, insert line above/below.
Autocomplete, auto-pairing, subtle 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 pages and makes it easy to build personal wikis, team knowledge bases, or something like a Second Brain or a Zettelkasten.

The docs you create in Nota are regular Markdown files that you can keep in Dropbox, manage in Finder, and use with any app that works with plain-text files — desktop or mobile, now or 50 years from now. We can't lose them or limit your access to them because we don't control them. You do.
If you use git to version-control your work, Nota will use that to show you helpful information about the current document and the other files in your workspace.
