Comments about Joplin as a Alternative to Evernote
Synchronizes between Windows, Linux and Android. I keep all of my notes here. Markdown is easy to learn. There are browser extensions to allow clipping notes from the web. Supports images, documents and links. Best all around notes app ever!3
open source with excellent sync options, plus encryption.8
Joplin is a quite okay alternative to Evernote, but it has its issues. 1) the mobile sync doesn't work in the background, so it doesn't work sufficiently. Issue on Android and iOS. It only syncs if you watch it. No background-sync (!!). 2) It's not WYSIWYG and you can't do several common things you can do with Evernote or Nimbus. Joplin has to improve in sync and user-friendlyness. Then it can really compete. But: it has the best Evernote import feature on the market. This worked flawlessly!1
There is a large community behind this app that can assist you if you find some problem.0
It's not WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) as Evernote. You need to learn Markdown.0
Though Standard Notes only supports text entry out of the box, it has its own advantages compared to Evernote. Its features can also be expanded with extensions. It's end-to-end encrypted, open source (but freemium), and has no device limit. It can synchronize your notes to as many supported devices as you want. Our users find that it does not feature multilingual support, however.

Comments about Standard Notes as a Alternative to Evernote
Standard Notes is the service that I can trust to not share and read my notes.2
Not good as joplin because almost all features are paid2
Does not support images or attachments, only text.13
A clean and simple, yet versatile and secure end-to-end encrypted notes app. There are multiple available extensions that allow for including images, building spreadsheets, and using markdown, among many other things.6
Standard Notes is a multiplatform application (Windows, Android, Linux), secure with perfect synchronization on several devices. Only problem: it is not multilingual.2

Comments about TiddlyWiki as a Alternative to Evernote
Although the approach is different, it is an alternative for other platforms in regards to note-taking in which Evernote does not cover (self-hosting mostly).0
Turtl is open source and encrypted end-to-end, so it's desirable as an Evernote alternative from a privacy standpoint. However, its development has ceased since 2019. It also lacks some of the more intricate features of Evernote and some of its highest rated alternatives, such as the ability to import notes from other programs.
The last update is from 2019.
Comments about Turtl as a Alternative to Evernote
Turtl stores your info encrypted, unlike Evernote. Much more private.10
Turtl is presently more of a bookmark sync utility than Evernote replacement. (For an open source Evernote replacement see TagSpaces). Unlike Evernote, Turtl is open source and use end-to-end encryption so that you can store simple notes and online bookmarks with full privacy, even from the Turtl developers. A browser plugin works together with the client to capture links. It's still being developed but already a good choice for cross-platform bookmark/note syncing.0
Windows versions do not work properly. There is very little documentation and a poor forum.6
Client-side AES encryption (private), open-source and free syncing. Markdown support, attachments, bookmarks, browser plugins and apps for Win, OsX, Linux and Android. Best used for simple notes, but it's infinitely better than, say Simplenote and much more private than Evernote.1
Turtl has a great potential to be a full alternative to evernote in the future. But that will take time, still waiting for import feature from other services like evernote,simplenote etc.1
