On the surface, TagSpaces looks like just an excellent Evernote alternative, but let me go further to add that it does a more advanced job than Evernote.

In short, I don’t think the Evernote team is moving in the direction of TagSpaces is because in as much as TagSpaces can somehow replace Evernote, but Evernote cannot replace TagSpaces – and that’s fine; they are different applications. But I wouldn’t be surprised if TagSpaces wins an award or two in the productivity section.

  1. We had dialogue concerning TagSpaces, but to move that conversation here. I like it on the surface, but the way it implements tagging is terrible as it puts it into the file names. It does have decent search, and I find that sad that I have to list this noting how many other projects don’t have this. However, if notes are stored using HTML, it uses Summernote as its editor for HTML. The result HTML it creates is filled with tons of unnecessary tags. I don’t guess I really have to care about how inefficient this is, but it would be nice if this could be a bit cleaner.

    TagSpaces does not support linking from one document to another. Laverna and KeepNote but support this. While you can indeed put a link to a document, all links must be relative, and an external markdown editor would be opened. I suppose if you can load “editorText” (https://github.com/tagspaces/editorText/) in such a fashion that your operating system thinks it is your native markdown editor, that it will work, but it is built as a module, not a separate app I believe.

    Since I’m discussing the Markdown, the renderer (https://docs.tagspaces.org/extensions/viewerMD) is nice in that it gives color coded syntax which is a plus. However, I’m unable to find a way to indent code blocks. In Laverna, one would simply use the + or * operator to make this happen before tabbing over enough to make it a code block. Any idea how to do this?
