Privacy oriented note-taking application??

I love onenote but would like something that actually cares about my privacy. Is there any application where I can host a server, connect to it and write notes in that is open source?

Re: Privacy oriented note-taking application??

I use a function and a symlink to a Synchting directory...

# simple notes
n() {
  local files
  files=(${@/#/$HOME/.notes/})
  ${EDITOR:-vi} $files
}

# TAB completion for notes
_notes() {
  _files -g "*" -W $HOME/.notes
}
compdef _notes n

# list notes
nls() {
  tree -CR --dirsfirst --noreport $HOME/.notes | awk '{
    if (NF==1) print $1;
    else if (NF==2) print $2;
    else if (NF==3) printf "  %s\n", $3
  }'
}

Fully open source. Completely private.

There seem to be turtl and standardnotes if it has to be a dedicated server. The official clients are electron apps, but there might be other clients available somewhere.

I'm using Boostnote with a note directory synced by pCloud. You can probably use some open-source Dropbox-like alternative for that (or even SSHFS), if you don't trust those kind of services.

emacs / org-mode / gpg.

And yes, emacs can even act as a server in this case.

Edit: Also, there are apps for iThings and Android that support org-mode.   It is also supported by vim and sublime via plugins.   I do not know if the vim plugin provides a server or not.
But, as Jason suggests, Syncthing can handle the sharing of the files betwixt the devices

I don't know if vim actually has a server for this, but can do something similar
like;
vim note-1
:X  (encryption password twice)
and save it (:w)
