Ask HN: How Do You Utilize Your Personal Knowledge Base?
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Jul 2023
I started using Foam a few years ago, but the more I used it, the more I dropped all the tedious bits, and it became nothing more than a big, evolving markdown repo.
When I switched from vscode (back) to vim, it has worked as well or better than it did before. I follow my own rules. I like the Zettelkasten idea of one idea per card, but if I put more related things in the same .md file, that's OK. I didn't like the flat directory structure, and so I have dirs organized by category. My /bar directory is inside my /cooking directory, and for whatever reason, that makes sense to me. Ripgrep doesn't care, and I always find what I'm looking for.
This markdown hierarchy, that still lives in a repo called "foam", has become indispensable to me.
How would you read your files if Obsidian disappeared?

How do you guys document all the technical stuff of your selfhosted servers?
10 projects | /r/selfhosted | 1 Jun 2023
I used to bullet journal but pen and paper notes aren't searchable so I use FOAM for knowledge management, it's a vscode plugin that turns simple markdown into a great connected graph of notes.10 projects | /r/selfhosted | 1 Jun 2023
So I switched to FOAM and it's just clean & organized markdown files in a git repo. Self host a code server instance and I can reference it without installing something to the work machine.

Recently I started to configure my digital garden. Foam is a good option, Hugo Doks, No Style Please, Git-Wiki, Researcher, Thinkspace, and other themes are good for zetteltasken pages.
Silver Bullet: Markdown-based extensible open source personal knowledge platform
14 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Dec 2022
Since the data store is markdown and can be synced with Git, you can already work with an Obsidian vault using Foam in VSCode. I do.
You do need to align some options in each, such as file naming, a header, a particular style of links, and ensure frontmatter behavior. All necessary settings exist.
This supports basic static file and links functionality, not extended data tools etc., of course.
