Joplin is an open-source note-taking app. Capture your thoughts and securely access them from any device.
This notebook covers how to load documents from a
Joplin has a REST
API for accessing its
local database. This loader uses the API to retrieve all notes in the
database and their metadata. This requires an access token that can be
obtained from the app by following these steps:
- Open the
Joplinapp. The app must stay open while the documents are being loaded.
- Go to settings / options and select “Web Clipper”.
- Make sure that the Web Clipper service is enabled.
- Under “Advanced Options”, copy the authorization token.
You may either initialize the loader directly with the access token, or store it in the environment variable JOPLIN_ACCESS_TOKEN.
An alternative to this approach is to export the
database to Markdown files (optionally, with Front Matter metadata) and
use a Markdown loader, such as ObsidianLoader, to load them.
from langchain.document_loaders import JoplinLoader
loader = JoplinLoader(access_token="<access-token>")
docs = loader.load()
