Can I use extensions with a self-hosted server?

Extensions are 100% compatible with a self-hosted server. Self-hosting the Standard Notes backend server has no impact on this, and there are no unique steps to follow. If you’d like to take advantage of the entire range of productivity-enhancing extensions powered by Standard Notes Extended, feel free to sign up for Extended as usual, and follow the steps from there.

Can I self-host my own extensions?

Yes, you may self-host your own extensions. All extensions, whether implicitly or explicitly, are backed by the same OSS license as our client and server. Extensions are however our main revenue source and how we support development of Standard Notes. If you decide to self-host, we encourage you to support development of the ecosystem in any way you can.
