I have notes where I strongly wish to avoid 3rd party cloud storage - even Apple’s
To that end, I am trying to set up my own one. iOS supports setting custom CalDAV server, so it is possible to handle Contacts, Reminders and Calendar with my server. Obviously, it is also possible to run own Mail server.
What is left is Notes. My research shows that Notes uses IMAP protocol internally.
I can see that if I set up an Exchange server account in Settings->Accounts, Notes will sync with that server.
My requirements are:
- Use of the native notes app is preferred. Functionality including file attachments, document scanning, Apple Pencil handwriting and drawing are desired.
- Sharing notes with third party is optional and not required
- I would like to self host on Linux hardware using free/opensource software (MS Exchange is not free, plus it requires running Windows Server).
Is it possible?
