Is Apostrophe markdown editor is best for personal notes on fedora in 2022

Taking notes on Linux is so good because we got a lot of good options. Here Apostrophe markdown editor on fedora for my personal notes.

In elementary os, I used Norka as my primary notes application but on gnome with work but when we have other options then we should check that also and test their capabilities.

So in search, I found apostrophe markdown editor which is available in RPM package format so I give a try this new markdown text editor on my Fedora workstation.

Since I write for my website on the fedora system. here’s my thought on apostrophe note-taking application. apostrophe uses markdown syntax which is hard for someone or not but I already used markdown on norka so I didn’t face any problem while writing.

Apostrophe is available in apps for gnome circle app which means it builds for gnome desktop environment.

It’s come with a distraction-free interface for a good writing experience. Since I like gnome UI/UX. I know many people don’t like gnome desktop environment because of no customization for them. But sometimes it’s good from a productivity point of view because we don’t need to change every time.
