Frequently asked questions

How my notes are stored?

All notes in Plume are simple plain text strings under the hood. Right now, all these plain text strings are stored in a SQLite database locally on your computer. But we have plans to remove the reliance on a custom database and to store all notes as simple .txt files inside a folder.
