πŸ‘‹ Hi Product Hunt! It's been a while! After a good year and a half I've finally come back from freelancing to building something of my own. And boy, does it feel good! πŸ’­ The story: Work on Notebag started on March 7, 2020 after a few long months of me being rather unhappy with any note taking app that's out there. Originally what I wanted something that you could describe as Apple Notes with markdown and a global show/hide shortcut. Eventually I realized that I very much enjoy the efficiency of managing my notes with just my keyboard and here we are! ✨ Main features: ⌨️ Fully keyboard compatible! You can throw away your mouse! (But you don't have to). You can do everything with a keyboard shortcut. You've never moved around your note taking app this fast. ⚑️ Markdown with instant preview! There's no preview pane here. You type and Notebag immediately formats your note πŸ” Fuzzy search for notes! If you remember even a few words of the thing you wrote three weeks ago, Notebag will find it for you real quick. πŸ‘€ An omnibar you where you can quickly go to notes and run common commands. You might know this as "Go To Anything" from your code editor 🏷 Nestable categories! Simply write a #hashtag and Notebag will categorize your notes for you. They're never more than a quick search away. πŸ”— Linkable notes! Collect all your knowledge and link it. The power of organized knowledge is right at your finger tips. Welcome to a new note-taking experience. P.S: Be sure to use coupon code LAUNCH20 for the first 24 hours to get 20% off!

@_pretzelhands Do you have any thoughts on integrations? In particular I'm looking to be able to take notes in Notebag but be about to then archive it into a more structured system like Coda.
Congrats on launching, Richard! Notebag looks great πŸ™ŒπŸΎ
Looking great, congrats on the launch Richard!
Congrats for the launch Richard! As a regular note user, I'm pretty impressed by the omnibar to move from one note to another. The other nice thing is how you handle markdown, it's better than what Bear has done (no offense to Bear though, it's a great product as well). So I wish you have a massive success with Notebag. Godspeed!
Brilliant! Can't wait to try this out.
