Each month, two Scout Report issues include a Tech Tools section, highlighting a pair of free programs, browser extensions, or apps. Readers especially enjoyed Joplin, a nifty organizational tool that streamlines and synchronizes users' notes. The open-source app is continuously improved and updated, with several new features introduced since its original feature last May (for example, added support for media players). Joplin is a note taking and to-do list application similar to Evernote. It is designed to handle large numbers of notes organized into notebooks. Notes are stored in Markdown format and can be modified using either Joplin itself or with the text editor of your choice. Similarly, all of Joplin's metadata is stored in plain text formats that can be easily inspected and modified with standard text editing tools. Joplin is able to import Evernote's .enex export files. The application also supports synchronizing notebooks across devices, using a number of cloud services including: Nextcloud, Dropbox, and OneDrive. Joplin is available for Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS devices. Joplin is free software, distributed under the MIT license, with source code available via GitHub.
