It takes about 2 minutes to get up and running with Noteworthy. Out of the box, you get a federation ready Matrix home server and a suite of privacy focused self-hosted applications.
Noteworthy is a collection network meta-protocols and reference implementations that enable collaborative personal overlay networks by building atop the decentralized Matrix messaging protocol. Here's a good overview of Matrix if you're not familiar. Over time, Noteworthy hopes to evolve into a viable alternative to traditional cloud-based online services such as AWS and Google.
Get a link via the Decentralabs Hub
By default, when installing Noteworthy, your deployment will expose a federation enabled Matrix home server at
matrix.yourdomain.com via an overlay link between your host and the invite-only Decentralabs Hub. Reach out to us via our Matrix channel or via email to request an invite.
or Run your own Hub
You can setup your own Hub with a single invocation of the
notectl command-line utility. All you need is a publicly accessible host (such as a DigitalOcean droplet or EC2 instance) with Docker installed. You can also run your Hub at home on any Windows, macOS or Linux host with Docker installed. You can find the instructions for deploying your own Noteworthy hub here.
The command-line interface
Noteworthy's primary user interface is a command-line utility. We've spent a considerable amount of effort in making sure it is well documented.

hub.noteworthy.im if you want to bring your own domain.
Thats it! It's that easy to get started with Noteworthy.
