I am a new Joplin user and simply thrilled by the application. Thank you for all the hard work and great design!
I have a question, though. I have around 4,000 plus notes in a custom text format (mostly Markdown) that I used with a self-coded set of scripts. I’d like to import these into Joplin but in a way that preserves their tags (which won’t happen with the direct Markdown import).
I could script that pretty easily if I was able to access the API, but I can’t, as I use a 32 bit Linux system and I am neither able to use the AppImage nor build the desktop app on my own as yet. Without the desktop app, I cannot turn on the service.
The other option is to use the command line options with the terminal app, but those turn out to be very slow on my system. Importing 4,000 notes would take around four hours just for these operations alone.
So is there a way I could write a script that wuold just directly to Joplin’s note store? If there is a documented file format, for instance? Then I could resolve this issue, and for future tasks the slow command line tools would suffice.
