Obsidian is a free, multi-platform application for writing and maintaining plain text notes (for longevity) as markdown files that provides a modest paid hosting service one can use with a personal-domain.

While not (yet) an open source project, the application encourages users to own their own data locally in a way that allows the use of alternate applications.

As of 2021-01-19 in version 0.10.9, the service provides a paid option for (selectively) hosting one's notes on a personal-domain allowing it to be used as an IndieWeb service.
