Best looking org-modes you ever saw?

for certain files, highlight weasel words, similar to writegood-mode6 projects | /r/emacs | 27 Nov 2022
I have some elisp rules for deciding which fonts I should use in the buffer (journal files vs code files vs prose vs notes vs etc.). Also colors — blue modelines for personal files and red modelines for work-related files. And for files that will get published publicly I will highlight certain words (similar to writegood-mode). And I use different default browsers for different projects. Different indentation rules for different folders. I have lots of little things like that.
Syntax highlighting for natural languages?

Writegood mode highlights passive voice. That could be starting point.

Very interesting. Mmm, have you tried writing-good-mode for editing? I guess you can help yourself for your editing/rewriting a bit better with my PR: https://github.com/bnbeckwith/writegood-mode/pull/27
Using emacs as a study environment

If, like me, OP is a little slap-dash, happy-go-lucky, can't-decide-what-to-use, lazy, or uncoordinated, https://github.com/jrblevin/deft is a pretty handy package.

For (neo)vim users, there's notational fzf , which also requires fzf to be installed . For Emacs, there's Deft . They all what to me are nvalt's core functionality which is fuzzy search into quick note creation/editing. They can also be used in conjunction with nvalt or other markdown based applications since all of them use plaintext. For Deft, you can also choose to create .org files.
How do people search their org roam notes?

Creating a summary for org files

I like deft for this.

Honestly I've been in the same boat as you for ages and have even tried writing my own zettelkasten packages here and there on top of things like deft (I started with zetteldeft, which shows).
Alternative to notational velocity/nvALT but with image support

‘Course, there’s an Emacs command to do that: Deft mode.
Different behaviors for widget-button-press and widget-button-click
2 projects | /r/emacs | 24 May 2021
I am trying to make an extension to the wonderful Deft package that can preview/view files in a side window of the Deft buffer (similar to the functionality of the original Notational Velocity). Deft normally takes a set of text files and for each file, displays a widget in the Deft buffer that, when pressed/clicked, opens the corresponding file. For my extension, I would like the file to be opened in the side window with that window having focus, but with the Deft buffer window still visible. I have had some success getting this to work, but I came across a situation with different behaviors depending whether one "presses" the file widget (by hitting [RET] when the point is on a file widget), or one "clicks" the file widget (by clicking the widget with the mouse):
Is org-roam the best emacs-based note-taking package?

New grad student, new to emacs, hoping to use for academic note taking/writing, completely lost on where to start

For note taking, deft is neat, lightweight, and can be set up to create .org files by default, so you can use all of org-mode's functionality too.
