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.

Quick dialogs.

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.

Complete data ownership.

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.

Git integration.

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.


With simple scripts, you can vastly extend Nota to fit your needs. Use scripts written by other users or write your own in a variety of scripting languages.
