    Community plugins list, theme list, and releases of Obsidian.

    If so, you can do that in Obsidian pretty easily. Obsidian is free, feature-rich, easy to learn, and absolutely fantastic for taking notes. You can also find all sorts of things about it on YouTube if you search it. Reviews of features or best practices or whatever. Your notes are also stored in a non-proprietary text format and it uses a version of Markdown, which is similar to what reddit uses for comments. The company could go out of business tomorrow and you'd still have access to all your notes without issue.

  • pf2e

    A community contributed game system for Pathfinder Second Edition.

    Another option that is getting a bit more technical is storing the data in json and using a tool like jq or a bespoke script in python to transform/query/filter it. For example, an unnamed Archives of Nethys replacement project that's on my backburner clones the FoundryVTT PF2E system implementation, which has a json serialization of all the PF2E resources (eg. spells.db/aberrant-form.json, and in a Makefile extracts specific index of the files needed for my purposes.

    A free, open source, multi-platform SQLite database manager.

    If you are up to learn SQL queries, I would suggest using SQLite. It stores all information in a single file. You even can use https://sqlitestudio.pl solution so it can be a little more visual.
