“I’ve been struggling with the same. I like Notion but I don’t think the mobile experience works as well as it does on desktop. Trilium is the easiest to setup but I the UX makes it harder to work with than Notion for me. Overall Obsidian is closer to what I need but I don’t want to fully move to it until I setup my own sync server that doesn’t rely on their servers.”
I like that Obsidian Sync enables E2E encryption, but $10 a month for that feature is out of my budget. I didn’t know you could actually self-host it? How are you planning to do that?
