  • shields

    Concise, consistent, and legible badges in SVG and raster format

    Project mention: Poetry (Packaging) in motion | | 2023-09-27

    I would highly recommend adding (a few!) badges to any repository that you plan on publishing. You can get some great badges from along with the info on how to actually generate them. If your repository is public, this should be easy enough. I would say to avoid spamming a ton and having your README looks like a technicolor dreamland. Just having things like package health, SourceRank and dependencies can help inspire faith in a smaller project. Having that can set you apart by showing that your code works! 😄

    Project mention: Zotero Better Notes – Knowledge management solution insid}e Zotero | | 2023-06-24

    Yeah, I just stumbled upon this project and wanted to share, I'm currently using Obsidian for my personal wiki, but I use Zotero a lot as a paper repo and reader, the organization and metadata tools are great, and extending it to a more powerful note-taking tool seems like a no-brainer.

    Now it just needs an EPUB reader to replace Calibre, then it'd just be the perfect all-in-one personal library. For now I'm using this plugin that exports and keeps in sync the calibre library to Zotero:

    Very grateful that this open source project stays alive, I've seen attempts over the years from startups and other projects to tackle on spaces like pkm, research, paperless office, to then be abandoned yet Zotero keeps getting updates.

    There's also Tropy, from the same organization that develops Zotero, for organizing digital assets:

    Getting a bit off-topic, but this thing could use some sort of Moodboard designer to visually sort the assets in a canvas, kind of what you can do with Miro, Notion, Mural or locally with Obsidian Canvas/Excalidraw. On that note,


    😋 Free decentralized storage and bandwidth for NFTs on IPFS and Filecoin.

  • structured-filter

    Project mention: looking for a structured text component for search | /r/reactjs | 2023-05-24
