Reducing friction when note taking

novice html & css web dev here

i’m in love with FCC’s side by side notes, IDE & IDE preview browser GUI.

visual studio code has been incredible for copying & pasting code & writing in my notes for code examples for my future reviewing when i’m at home: but i can’t install it on the work computer. i’ve been resorting to copying & pasting the notes i make when i’m at work from simplenote into VSC. but i want to respect the DRY principle

ideal goal:
basically, a ripped FCC layout that allows me to edit notes but uses ctrl+f to easily navigate my library of notes.
cloud based so my notes are saved & can be accessed via a work computer via a web browser

what possibly could be better than having a personal google when it comes to code info retention? rhetorical question
