  • Project mention: A New Way to Store Knowledge | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-21

    Looking at the GitHub repo[0], I don't see why you wouldn't be able to host it yourself (extra configuration may be required). In the package.json, there is a script for running the web app `npm run webapp:build`, so I'd assume you could do that and then host the built web app however you'd like.

  • Project mention: Notion alternative: AppFlowy vs Outline vs Affine? | /r/selfhosted | 2023-07-06

    I see, well you can create tables with queries, here is the related documentation and here is a plugin for Kanban and the logtools which maybe is less intuitive. I think logseq is really a powerful tool, also with a great set of plugins and an active and supportive community, but can be overwhelming at the beginning. For what I tested and what I understood as your requirements, maybe AppFlowy could be your pick :) Solid interface, tables and kanban view.
