trying to find out how to take open source code
and make it into a working app/software
simplenote was made open source https://simplenote.com/2016/08/11/ios-android-and-macos-apps-now-open-source/
things i dont understand + questions
- i dont understand why nobody has made another simplenote, it so well designed, instead ppl are making all these other apps that are so poorly designed. why havent ppl copy/paste this open source code and made another simplenote?
- longterm i want to make another simplenote ( but does not have a login). i want to know what are all specific topics i’d need to know to do this ?
- what in world is this https://simperium.com/overview/ - is it needed? or?
- why did they make this open source, very confused cos wordpress brought simplenote, i dont understand why they did?
- are there any open source focused/specific forums/sites to ask btw?
- anything else that would be helpful (for goal ofc)
is there anyone on here knowledgae enoguh to answer any of these?
please answer as if i was 4 cos i know nothing about coding. i understand it takes a long time to learn coding
