Because privacytools.io recommends Joplin I am switching my notes to it. I add the text files to Git, and wonder if I can also use a public Repo and/or a cloud hosted Git server?

I will paste sensitive info like API tokens and passwords into the notes.

I enabled About End-To-End Encryption (E2EE)🔗 / docs with very strong pass (in local KeePassXC) and file synchronisation to a Git repo.

Encrypted data is encoded to ASCII because encryption/decryption functions in React Native can only deal with strings. So for compatibility with all the apps we need to use the lowest common denominator.

Too complicated for me.

    Hi, Joplin's author here. I'm not an expert, far from it, but I did try to follow industry standards when I've implemented E2EE. Additionally, the crypto has recently been audited and as a result various improvements have been made. I'm planning to post a summary of what the cryptographer found and what changes were made soon. – laurent Mar 28 at 17:10
