Journalistic is a micro journaling app with minimalistic design, pristine writing experience, and powerful insights.

The ultimate goal of Journalistic is to help you focus on what truly matters in life and to provide a place where you can write down and organize all the things that occupy your mind.

Our app is optimized for a distraction-free writing experience so that you can express your thoughts clearly.

While you write, Journalistic aggregates information from your entries, tags, mentions, etc. and compiles them into meaningful insights, e.g. how many times you went surfing in the last month or where and when you have met someone for the first time.

Journalistic is a Progressive Web App. PWAs are fast, reliable, and always up to date. They provide a consistent experience across different devices and are available in the browser and as an app via Chrome and Safari on Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux. We chose this technology over native apps to support the open web and to be independent of big corporations – specifically Apple and Google. It also allows us to develop and ship new features faster and serve all users at the same time. PWAs provide a seamless user experience and are ideal for our use case.


Journalistic is built with Django, Nuxt, Vite, and a lot of other amazing open-source software.
