    I’m still looking for a good self hosted alternative specifically for hosting PDF’s with full text search ability. They all either seem way too complex or way too limited with PDF (no search or preview).

    And then there’s the issue of syncing everything out of Evernote.

      I use Joplin. I selfhost the Joplin server and just Sync my notes across devices.

        I’ve checked it out before and it does look like a top contender. I have 2 major outstanding questions/issues.

        First, how to migrate? I have tens of thousands of notes in many folders. Not something I’m willing to do manually.

        Second, does it allow for mixed notes of text and pdf or images of written notes?

        The barrier to entry has kept me out a bit because it looks like a big job, but would be interested to hear if someone else had pulled it off.
