The last two weekends I scratched a web development itch. I've been using KeepNote to store notes for years now. It's a nice simple desktop app, which I use to store details such as past addresses, account numbers, phone numbers etc. And more sensitive information like PIN numbers and passwords.
I configured KeepNote to store notes in Dropbox so that I don't risk losing anything. This has worked quite well, but I've always been frustrated that (a) I can't access my notes on my mobiles devices, and (b) I'm relying on a third party to keep my secrets.
In particular, I wanted to implement Sublime Text's fuzzy search. Essentially this allows you to filter the list of notes with a few key presses. For instance, if I have a note entitled ‘Social Security Number’, I can find it by typing ‘SSN’ or ‘SocSecNum’.
The site is currently live. Feel free to create a new encrypted notebook, but be aware that it is just for testing. Please don't use this to store the PIN number for your safety deposit box, or missile launch codes just yet. I will likely wipe the DB at some point.
I've create an test notebook which you can play with here:
Passphrase is: “where there is a will”
To be honest, I'm not sure what would happen if more than one person is editing a notebook at a time – but feel free to try it out.
The code is available on GitHub. I'm no cryptography expert, so I would appreciate someone who is to review the code…
