Is it possible to sync iOS Notes with ownCloud?

Postby tom_nighthawk » Tue Jun 09, 2015 2:57 pm

Hey folks,

I would sync the notes on my iphone with the ownCloud-Server, so I can work with the notes on different devices.

Is there are way to realise this?

Thanks!
Tom

Hi,

there are two notes apps available here:

https://apps.owncloud.com/content/show. ... ent=168512
https://github.com/owncloud/notes/

Have a look at the iOS appstore if you can find an app which allows the sync against them.

Hi,

mhhh maybe this is something you should ask an iOS community if the iOS Notes App supports syncing to external sources like the linked Notes apps above.

Hi,

ahh as this is very unlikely that the iOS notes app is capable to sync against the API provided by the ownCloud apps you could also see if the iOS notes app can save it notes to a folder on your phone. Then you could sync this folder with the official iOS sync app.

In theory it is possible.
It is my experience that iOS Notes can work together nicely with an IMAP/SMTP setup.
In that sense, a basic primitive integration can be achieved by:
- using inotify to watch a particular directory for new files & changes, and trigger a script that gets it into your maildir notes area.
- using either another inotify script or building a trigger into you mail solution to sync back changes to the owncloud notes folder.

Possible issues with this can be formatting that isn't really OK for owncloud, however iOS notes app supports it (even images) - that will go badly sideways - but if you keep it as text, and study the format iOS notes is using, it can work. Again, in theory :)
