[Discuss] Backing up evernote

I gave the Joplin Linux desktop application a try, and importing one
of my smaller Evernote folders from the .enex backup file worked

I found instructions on setting up a Nextcloud server under Docker,
which Joplin is supposed to work well with.  Also, Joplin apparently
syncs with Dropbox, which Jerry mentioned as a viable back-end for
him, so running a Nextcloud server may not be necessary.

Looks like a decent replacement for Evernote if Evernote does go out
of business. At least for web clippings, which is mostly what I use
Evernote for. I've never tried out Evernote's other media types, such
as audio, or its OCR capabilities, and I'm not sure what other
non-text media types Evernote supports, so I can't test whether they
work in Joplin.

Check it out at I have it set up for Linux/iOS/Mac OS, though I don't regularly use it because I never quite got the whole Evernote thing, other than as the sign on a building in Redwood City. My main use for it is to take notes about seating locations in movie theaters, now that they all want you to reserve in advance and I got tired of being too far back or too close.
