As hinted in the previous post, this v0.4.0 release is a MVP to show sync between different devices using slightly patched tarpc . Currently sync works between desktop and desktop, desktop and mobile when they are on the same LAN/WiFi.
The schema of
note table is updated to have an extra
uuid column to uniquely identify and dedup records for sync. At the end of sync operation, both devices will end up with same set of
uuid by appending the diff from the other device.
Mobile device can scan a QR code encoding the server address and port to connect to the server to start sync.

I have not cut a release yet, but the work-in-progress Local Native v0.4.0 introduced a new
uuid4 field into
This serves as a unique key for each record, syncing between different devices could leverage this new column. Actual code for syncing is still yet to be written. The idea is uuid4 could be used as a record identifier to compare with records with other devices.
I considered using key based on actual content, but decided that's too much and preferred true randomness.
State of the Art Mobile Machine Learning Vision App Release!
Standing on the shoulders of giants, my version of TFL Classify and FB MLVision are published. Much like Bluetooth Chat, my goal is to just have minimum modification to cross the finish line to publish. Now they are running on light weight but powerful mobile devices, I am amazed and feel magical to see face recognition, image classification and text recognition happen in real time. I guess it is fair to say those are state of the art machine learning capacities well packaged for developers to play with.
My version of Bluetooth Chat is released.
It's one of many similar Android Bluetooth Chat applications presumably built based on same example code, which seems dormant without significant updates since 2016. Some of those applications really polished the UI and added more features like send images and files.
My version is aimed to just has minimum modification to cross the finish line to publish.
This release adds QR code display for url.
What is new?
- This Local Native release marks as a personal milestone to satisfy my day to day use case for web bookmarking and note taking with title, url, tags and description.
- Search, create, read, delete and pagination are implemented for desktop (gnu/linux, mac), browser extension (firefox, chrome/brave) and mobile (ios, android).
- On desktop, time-series charts are shown to allow filtering on time range, and tag cloud are visualized.
