While Laverna may look like yet another Markdown editor, it has several features that make it stand out from the crowd. For starters, there is nothing to install. Simply point your browser to Laverna's page , hit the Start using now button, and you are ready to go -- no registration required. To make it easier to keep tabs on your notes, Laverna allows you to organize them into notebooks. You can also mark individual notes as favorites for faster access. The editing interface supports all essential formatting features. The editor itself is split into two panes: the editing area for working with text and the preview pane which displays the final result in real time.

Laverna's claim to fame is support for encryption and syncronization. You can enable encryption by ticking the appropriate check box in the Settings dialog. Here, you can also enable the synchronization option. In addition to Dropbox, Laverna supports the remoteStorage protocol, so you can use any service that offers remoteStorage-based synchronization with the editor.

Laverna's source code is available on GitHub, so if you prefer to deploy the application on your own server, you can do it by following the installation instructions in the project's repository.
