WebNotes my attempt on Opera Notes

  • Hello,
    as many of you, I was kind of disappointed when Opera dropped support for Notes, as it was one of my most used features.

    So I decided to try to create my own notes, but now web based and browser independent - WebNotes.

    So here is more info on that: http://webcodingeasy.com/JS-classes/WebNotes
    Here is the code: https://github.com/ar2rsawseen/WebNotes
    And here is a live demo you can try and use: http://notes.waterbreadinternet.com/

    Hope that helps anyone.

    Now onto covering other missing features 😃

  • Hi

    I think your extension is actually the best available solution :yes: ... however I've some wishes if I can :p

    - An essential feature to me is having the side panel for notes. I use it as the main (and very fast) access for notes, and I open the full manager in a tab only when I've to manage and reorganize them (opening sidebar and tab at the same time lets you move notes through them very easily... Since I've more than 1000 notes it helps me a lot).
    I know the Opera and Chrom* doesn't support sidebars at all, but since FF has them, and your extension is independent from the browser, can you consider to add this feature?

    - Import feature: If I recall right, the hallvors extension has an importer for the notes.adr file ... can you use the same behavior? (maybe with an external tool, so you don't add more code to the extension... use the tool to have a compatible notes file format > then use the import feature of your extension .... it's useful to not have to use the manual import you explain in the site)

    - Sync: as you may know, this is a MUST have... without it the extension is quite useless I think :ko:

    And a doubt: where the extension stores the notes? Is there a single file or what? How to backup?

    Thanks in advance for the effort and good work :up:

  • Do you plan an extension ans syn. as well.?

  • Yes Sync and mobile friendly version is what I require my self and will try to add the features, when I'll have enough time.

    About making it as a side panel, then I would really need to dive in browser specifics, to hook up it to internal extension api, which I'd rather not do for now.

    About importing from notes.adr, I'd need to look at that format, if it is not a binary data, most probably that can be done from pure javascript.

    But on the other side, the code is freely available, and if any one wants to modify it or use locally (without access to Internet) one can easily do that 🙂

  • Any chance to implement linked note behavior (note that have hyperlink in it)?

    OK, since it is based on pure web code I think I will be able to achieve the result without difficulty, I suppose 🙂 ... I'll try to do my port when (and if) I'll switch my O12 to FF

    It's plain text... that obviously isn't something "absolutely needed" ... I suggested only to make things easy 🆒
