"unspeakably epic storage infinite in number that matches the speaker's expectations that's not food which isn't gendered that will hopefully die by sheep with a market value less than 10 US dollars"

The AGPL license is probably not in line with our current licensing policy which says "Applications which are intended to be run on a server may be licenced under the AGPL-3.0-or-later". This doesn't seem to be primarily for servers.

Running the example gives me
  QSqlError("19", "Unable to fetch row", "NOT NULL constraint failed: Note.title") when creating a new item of Note
Not sure it's wanted/expected

You don't seem to be specifying the database in your sql queries, what if i have another database in my app?

your CMakeLists.txt calls itself ikona

libpokipoki is missing from CMakeLists.txt

As someone that maintained a project with double buildsystem for a long time, I strongly suggest not to do it (OTOH this is so trivial that it may be acceptable).

Seems like this is the kind of project that would welcome some tests (something like your example file but that it's tested for each build to make sure nothing regresses).
