Was really trying to find open way of 'doing' Evernote with filesystem. Almost thought of writing my own. Think I've found it: @tagspaces— Trystan Negus (@trystann) February 2, 2015
Wow. Just found out about the TagSpaces. Very cool stuff - Evernote, bye-bye and thanks for your continued support on Linux/Chrome platforms— Daniel Vladušič (@dvladar) January 9, 2015
Definitely. TagSpaces also supports storing metadata in per-directory hidden folders, which is probably the best way to go.— ∰ Jesse (@holocronweaver) 27. August 2017
