This package can be used to create and manage notes shared between users.

Noter's focus is simplicity – browser display and search, with a log-in to add, edit, and delete notes.
The log-in offers basic protection from unauthorised tampering via password obfuscation and session timeout.
Noter was created for an isolated network where plain text transfer and viewing is acceptable, and without determined adversaries. Noter is NOT suitable for storing sensitive data.
A single SQLite database file facilitates easy backup, transfer, and source control of data.
A Raspberry Pi, with Apache and PHP installed, could make an ideal low-powered always-on host for Noter.
A PHP server running version 7.2+ with the following module enabled:
Clone the repository (or extract the ZIP archive) into the server's web directory e.g.
cd /var/www/html sudo git clone https://github.com/Tinram/Noter.git sudo chown -R <username>:www-data Noter/
apache instead of
www-data for Red Hat-based distros)
sudo chown www-data Noter/log/badlog.txt sudo chmod 600 Noter/log/badlog.txt
SQLite file operation (requires actioning on the directory itself):
sudo chown -R www-data Noter/db/
Check the configuration file constants: config/config.php
Only the timezone, session timeouts,
CONFIG_NUM_NOTES_DISPLAYED, and user credentials are of immediate interest.
Change the users and the user password hashes (
The default users are martin and alison, and both passwords are P@55w0rd.
(More users can be added here, and editing the relevant locations in classes/login.class.php.)
Passwords are stored as SHA-256 hashes.
CONFIG_USER1_PASS etc should be replaced with a hash generated from either a website service or by running one of the following commands in a terminal and copying the output hash:
echo -n 'PASSWORD' | sha256sum
php -r "echo hash('sha256', 'PASSWORD');"
python -c "import hashlib;print(hashlib.sha256('PASSWORD'.encode()).hexdigest())" python3 -c "import hashlib;print(hashlib.sha256('PASSWORD'.encode()).hexdigest())"
Noter includes an initial SQLite database: db/noter.sqlite3
However, where GitHub importing does not permit binary files (e.g. PHPClasses and the noter.sqlite3 file is consequently missing, the file will need to be created manually –
In a terminal:
cd db/ sudo sqlite3 noter.sqlite3 .read noter_schema_data.sql .exit sudo chown www-data:www-data noter.sqlite3
or better, configure an Apache vhost and access with:
or if Apache rewrite is disabled:
Upon logging-in through this page, notes can be added, updated, or deleted.
</code> tags can be used to highlight code snippets.
</pre> preserves whitespace (both spaces and copy/pasted tabs).
</code> does not preserve whitespace.
Most types of link references will be automatically converted into HTML links upon note addition (but not on note updating).
The SQLite database schema is available at db/noter\_schema.sql
The SQLite database schema and initial data is available at db/noter\_schema\_data.sql
Unsuccessful log-in attempts are recorded in log/badlog.txt
Noter was originally created as a second language flashcard viewer (to which it can be easily reverted).
Noter was never coded for elegance, merely to do a simple job in minimal code. It's like my car: looks ancient, runs quite well.
Noter is released under the GPL v.3.
