Nextcloud's Cookbook app is nice and useful!
Recipes from supported websites (schema.org recipe format) can be imported from the web app and viewed on mobile (Android) using the app (requires Nextcloud installed as well)

@jetgirl If you don't need a mobile client, Zim is really nice.
If you use Nextcloud, the Notes app (web, Android) in combination with QOwnNotes / MarkText on desktop is a good choice.
If you use Emacs, org-mode + Syncthing + Orgzly (Android) works well.

I wrote about my note-taking setup in this blog post:

Was looking up CommonMark and came across this nice tutorial on Markdown syntax. Learnt few things I didn't know before :)

@Crocmagnon "Download all files" is perfectly fine for downloading the entire folder. Downloading individual files is not intuitive, I feel. Will try submitting an issue. Thanks!

@Crocmagnon This was a link I shared with some one else. Clicking on the file name plays the video. I feel it is not immediately obvious how to download an individual file as it is hidden under the dropdown menu.

@honza Probably Mobilizon. They just had a new release I think

IMHO Nextcloud should just include the download button next to the size column rather than displaying it in a dropdown box. This just feels like a waste of space.

Some nice tips/app picks on the recent Linux Unplugged podcast. I'm checking out profile-sync-daemon. Also on the list - video trimmer, firefox-adwaita-theme and also considering moving ~/bin to ~/.local/bin

@ohemelaar Sorry, missed your previous post about not having bluetooth on your computer!

@thang Foliate is nice. Don't think it has sync. I only use it on the desktop

Firefox config to load tabs in background (CTRL+click or from external applications).

In about:config, set
browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground to true

Prefer this to the default, especially when opening links from my RSS reader (QuiteRSS)

Etar is an alternative calendar app. Once DAVx5 is installed and you've logged in to Nextcloud, calendars should show up in Etar.

Goodtime β€” beautiful, minimal pomodoro timer for Android. Been using it for a week and like it very much.

Teleprompter software for Linux and other platforms. Useful and the only one I found for this purpose. Used it for recording audio for my recent tutorials

@nurinoas Apologies for the delay. Was away from mastodon for a while.

I use the Nextcloud Notes app on Android. It is also possible to edit notes directly from the Nextcloud app. I realised this only while making the video!
