Cerveau: a future-proof web app for notes

I’ve announced Neuron before here – a future-proof note-taking tool in Haskell using Markdown and Pandoc.

Here, I’m announcing Cerveau - a web app for your Neuron notes in a Git repository (Cerveau = Neuron + GitHub + your notes) for future-proof editing “on the go”. It is a full-stack Haskell app, and is written using reflex and obelisk in the frontend.

In this blog post, I go over the tech stack briefly: https://www.srid.ca/689c4a39.html


How would you compare it to Standard Notes? Licensing?

How would you compare it to Standard Notes?

EDIT: My bad, I didn’t know that Standard Notes was open-source.

I’ll have to look at this later, but briefly - Neuron supports interlinked notes Zettelkasten stye, and does publishing on the web.


I address this in the blog post, in the “Towards perfecting future-proof note-taking” section - but briefly, Cerveau is a luxury-on-top hosted service for Neuron sponsors, with a potential for later consideration to open-source it depending on the sponsorship success.

If cervaeau ends up open and agpl, and you use storage free of microsoft/github such as a nextcloud backend, I would switch to using it in the future. I won’t end up using revision history, so git is optional for me.
