A website allowing markdown pastebins notes.

Feature-rich paste-bin type website with locking, encryption, self-destruction and more.

cowyo is a self-contained wiki server that makes jotting notes easy and fast. The most important feature here is simplicity. Other features include versioning, page locking, self-destructing messages, encryption, and listifying. You can download cowyo as a single executable or install it with Go. Try it out at https://cowyo.com.

There is now a command-line tool, cowyodel to interact with cowyo and transfer information between computers with only a code phrase: schollz/cowyodel.

cowyo is straightforward to use. Here are some of the basic features:

Publishing

If you hover the the top left button (the name of the page) you will see the option “Publish”. Publishing will add the page to the sitemap.xml for crawlers to find. It will also default that page to go to the /read route so it can be easily viewed as a single page.

View all the pages

To view the current list of all the pages goto to /ls.

Editing

When you open a document you’ll be directed to an alliterative animal (which is supposed to be easy to remember). You can write in Markdown. Saving is performed as soon as you stop writing. You can easily link pages using [[PageName]] as you edit.

Editing

History

You can easily see previous versions of your documents.

History

Lists

You can easily make lists and check them off.

Lists

Locking

Locking prevents other users from editing your pages without a passphrase.

Locking

Encryption

Encryption is performed using AES-256.

Self-destructing pages

Just like in mission impossible.
