Hi,

On my synology NAS I have this app called the DS Notes. I have been populating this with my own faq/database materials. I am sourcing a software/method to be able to convert this to html (much like the rightnotes webbook html) that i can host this on a webserver with a tree navigation structure. The rightnotes webbook if I am not wrong, reference the links in such a way that this is not useable on a webserver so this is not suitable.

Hoping for some constructive feedback please?

Thanks
tofu

I think DS Note is the older version, and Note Station is the one in their newest OS.  Not sure if DS Note has the same functionality as Note Station, but you can export to HTML files:

Thanks wraith808. Yes it is indeed called Note Station now. I have been using Synology for a long time and sometimes it is hard to remember they have renamed the thing.

On Notestation I can export only a single note to html but the issue is that:

1. The html file is just the content of the note itself. I cannot export the html that includes the tree. so it is not really useful.

2. I need to export each note individually to html. If I export all the notes in 1 notebook for instance, it will export in a .nsx file which is not viewable in webpage.

Cheers

Not sure how well this works, but there is a tool that extracts the notes from an nsx file into Markdown.

From there, it's a short hop to HTML.

There's also a script that imports into Joplin, which might be helpful for maintaining structure.

Thanks I previously researched those ones that you listed. They appear to only export the text portion of the notes. They do not preserve the images that are embedded within the notes.

Maybe it was an earlier version?

After conversion you will get:

Directories named like exported notebooks;
Notes in those directories as markdown-syntax plain text files with all in-line images in-place;
Assigned tags and links to attachments at the beginning of note text;
All images and attached files in media sub-directories inside notebook directories.

Hi there. I have now checked out this latest version and yes it does create a markdown of the notes including the images. Sadly however it does not convert the tree structure which is an important consideration.

You might be able to put in a request in the git repo to see if they might know how to do it.  Unfortunately, I've never worked with Note Station nor that format, so other than a few Google searches, I can't be of more help than that offhand.

No problems wraith. I will try my luck then.
