NixNote is an open source Evernote clone for Linux. There are currently two versions of the NixNote version 1 and version 2.

Version 2 is NixNote is under development is is currently in beta.



Currently nixnote does not exist in the portage tree, and every overlay I could find is out of date. So you will need to use a custom ebuild to install.

Follow the instructions here: in brief:

Create a portdir directory:

root #mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/app-misc/nixnote2

Add the PORTDIR_OVERLAY to make.conf:

root #echo PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage > /etc/portage/make.conf

Download the ebuild from (or write your own) and copy to your portdir directory. Move to the portdir directory: and create the digest:

root #cd /usr/local/portage/app-misc/nixnote2
root # ebuild myebuild-0.1.1.ebuild digest

You will receive warnings unless you add a layout.conf file

root #mkdir /usr/local/portage/metadata
root # echo 'masters = gentoo' > /usr/local/portage/metadata/layout.conf

From there you should be able to emerge as normal.

root #emerge --ask app-misc/nixnote2



root #emerge --ask --unmerge app-misc/nixnote2
