A pleasant note-taking platform.

At early 2019, I decided to refactor VNote as VNoteX. Now a fresh VNote is ready!
VNoteX is closed source and is intended to keep several premium features compared to VNote. Most of VNoteX's code base will be open source as VNote 3.0, so VNote will share most of the code base with VNoteX and continue to be open source from 3.0.
Welcome to VNoteX and VNote 3.0!


  • The notebook format of VNote 3.0 is not compatible with that of earlier versions of VNote. Feel free to decide the right time to jump to VNote 3.0.
  • Features supported by VNote 3.0 now is NOT on par with VNote 2.0. The migration takes time.

The obsolete code base of VNote 2.0 is available at the vnote2.0 branch.

For more information, please visit VNote's Homepage.



VNote is a Qt-based, free and open source note-taking application, focusing on Markdown now. VNote is designed to provide a pleasant note-taking platform with excellent editing experience.

VNote is NOT just a simple editor for Markdown. By providing notes management, VNote makes taking notes in Markdown simpler. In the future, VNote will support more formats besides Markdown.

Utilizing Qt, VNote could run on Linux, Windows, and macOS.
