Due to its own limitations, Evernote has two key features that are still not supported: this is not supported, and that is not supported.~~ Specifically, Markdown.~~ So I spent a week trying out all the software on the market that wipes the butt for EN for reference.

Marxico

Mark Flying Elephant is indeed a software with complete functions, but more precisely, it is an online editor with evernote as storage. The only real use of Evernote’s functions is its search function. But think about it, the other editors are the same.

Although it has a client side, the client side is Chrome offline App, and there is an additional protocol association. From the EN client side, you can click the link to jump to the client side for editing. But as mentioned earlier, it is only a Markdown editor that outputs pages to EN, so modifications in the EN client side * cannot * be reverse synchronized to Mark Flying Elephant, and the source code, attachments, and mathjax source code of the MD page are all There, once you terminate its service of 79 yuan a year (very expensive), although you can edit the notes it has created, it is super troublesome to export or migrate to other tools (especially formulas and codes), and it is also lost. The advantage that EN can facilitate migration~~ blind a few turns~~.

Little bookmaker

Little Bookmaker is the most powerful one of the software I have tried. The functions I want are indentation, MathJax, Emacs keys, picture insertion, and two-way synchronization. Basically it has it all. But unfortunately, everything written in JS is rubbish. macOS has an * energy consumption index *, Firefox 28, Atom16, and Little Bookmaker is about 12. And the Alternote I’m using now has an index of 1.62. I use a notebook, and I don’t care about the card. I’ve been used to it for so many years, but I can’t stand the power consumption.

Atom

Although the way of using plugins and AppleScript makes me feel a little dirty, this hack method is still eye-catching, and it gives people a reason to like mac. But the reason for the final pass is still one, power consumption. When typing, the power consumption will rise. Although the power consumption of Atom is only about 0.5-1 when it is stationary, once it is switched to the front desk, the energy consumption will rise to 6, and the CPU usage will also take off to about 30. When you start typing or scrolling the window, the CPU will soar to 100, and the energy consumption is also mentioned 15. It can’t be used as a vase.

There are so many bugs that affect the feeling. Turn on the floating label CPU to keep the CPU high and not falling. After clicking Sync, the folder view will pop up. Turn it off and click again to synchronize. Inserting an image will base64 encode it, decode it, and then save the file. I fixed this funny bug. I didn’t want to use it instantly when I saw that code. Junk JS, junk coffee! The author said, WFM (Work For Me), the pot is thrown beautifully! Work for you, not me.

It turns out that I still don’t understand why editors like vim and Emacs are not popular and can do anything? Now I understand. Using obscure language to do the functions that an editor with “great potential” actually has no functions should have, isn’t this boring?

Alternote

Finally back to my first choice. Although there is no formula or code box, this can be solved by other gadgets, not to mention, if you think about those advanced functions, you can use them less than once in a few days, and there are more specialized tools for formulas and so on. It will be more efficient (I haven’t researched the formula, but someone on stackoverflow has suggested a solution). I think about it, the most commonly used bold italic headings and link image strikeouts are all available, which is enough. As for the absence of TOC, it’s all small things.

Alternote also has a small detail that is easy to use and explode. A function that really gives people the feeling of writing software, and is willing to pay for it, is - ** Chinese word segmentation **. If you have really written in Chinese, you will realize that the weight of these words is actually very heavy! alt-arrow can jump and delete words between sentences faster, especially for editors like me who like to consider punctuation of sentences and keep up with thinking. While writing this, I purposely opened MS Word, the ultimate word processing tool, because I thought it was so expensive that this feature should be available. Surprisingly, there is, however, ** not as good as Alternote **!

Only tested one sentence, but it should explain the problem. The test method is to use alt-arrow to navigate when writing, and when a breakpoint is reached, a vertical bar will be placed, but there are no lines drawn on both sides of the punctuation mark, which is too rubbish if it cannot be broken (in fact, except for alternote and word). Can’t break).~~ Oh yes, the official client side can also be hyphenated normally.~~ Update: All text areas using macOS native text view and text field support Chinese hyphenation.

I don’t know if you have the function of Chinese word segmentation.

  • Alternote hyphenation: Chinese | word segmentation | | function | don’t know | you have | no.
  • Word hyphenation: The | function | ability of Chinese word segmentation | I don’t know if you have | have it.

Well I don’t think it’s fair to the word. Test again.

Alternote also has a small detail that is easy to use and explode. A function that really gives people the feeling of writing software and is willing to pay for it is - Chinese word segmentation. If you have really written in Chinese, you will realize that the weight of these words is actually very heavy! When writing this sentence, I deliberately opened MS Word, the ultimate word processing tool, because I thought it was so expensive, this function should be available. Surprisingly, there is, but, not as good as Alternote!

  • Alternote Hyphenation Alternote | There is also | a | easy to use | explosive | | small | detail, a | real | giving | writing | software | | feeling, willing | giving | it | paying | fee | function, that is - Chinese | word segmentation.

It’s a matter of opinion.

Oh yes, do you know why I don’t use OneNote? I have installed OneNote for more than a year, and the synchronization has not been successful so far!

Other third party client side

From < gt r = “1”/>

  • GeekNote

How to say, some people like to use the command line, just like it. I don’t like watching other people eat shit either, but some people like it.

  • NixNote

If you don’t give money, it is unreliable. 2 is not written in java, and there is no official compilation guide. A GUI program is still ugly, which makes people doubt its functionality.

  • Everpad

Linux only. No faith, no consideration. The mouth says that it supports many features of evernote, tag, notebook, category… Is the editor too weak to say anything?


Finally, let’s make a functional comparison. (Alas, WYSIWYG’s table editor is the best to use, garbage markdown)
