Installing affine on endeavouros

Anybody ever tried to install affine the new Open source competitor of Notion and Miro.

I guess That it is still in Beta but it Sems to be very promising

cf. this article covering Affine: it should run on Linux too

The biggest function of AFFiNE is that any block can be converted with one click: the page editing mode + Kanban view mode + whiteboard mode can be seamlessly linked — making it easy, convenient, and burden free for all users to use. In addition, AFFiNE has more page views and whiteboard views, which can help different users brainstorm and align progress with other partners at any time while precipitating and processing data sets, and write data-related reports and complete meetings without changing the working tools flow. You can expect more feature additions as the development continues. Some existing highlights include: Native cross-platform support. Add to-do in text mode, and transform to board mode. Ability to self-host it or install it on your computer. Customizability. Data privacy. A single code base for better maintenance. Community-driven extensibility. Multi-column view and advanced formatting support. Click anywhere and type with MarkDown support. Keyboard shortcuts for editing cell/grid.

This is another way to contact AFFiNE: Telegram: Twitter: Blog: Hope you have a nice time with AFFiNE!
