  • AppFlowy

    Bring projects, wikis, and teams together with AI. AppFlowy is an AI collaborative workspace where you achieve more without losing control of your data. The best open source alternative to Notion.

    It seems like there's a lot of recent interest and effort in open-source or self-hosted Notion-like/markdown-with-widgets applications and platforms. AppFlowy (https://github.com/AppFlowy-IO/AppFlowy) comes to mind; I attended one of their monthly "town hall" meetings a few months back, and looks like they're rapidly increasing in popularity. I think there was another similar project like this on HN front page last week, IIRC.

    This makes me happy, because I switched to Obsidian primarily for local-first file storage in a platform-agnostic format. I've learned to love many things about Obsidian and am writing a few plugins myself, but there are still several Notion-esq functionalities I wish I had, and I find myself handing off between Obsidian and other webapps for certain effort, like team project management.

    I used to get far more excited to explore new projects like BlockSuite, and I really appreciate their documentation, but I find it hard to justify allocating time to reviewing and trying out new tools when I still have much more improve on with my Obsidian usage; this is especially true of newer projects where I'm unsure of their shelf life.

    To assuage my internal conflict I remind myself that I think plaintext is fundamentally the right choice for much knowledge collection, and I'm proud to say that if the internet shut down, I'd retain a significant growing fraction of my personal data.

  • logseq

    A local-first, non-linear, outliner notebook for organizing and sharing your personal knowledge base. Use it to organize your todo list, to write your journals, or to record your unique life.

    It would be interesting to have your perspective, as an Obsidian user, on Logseq(https://logseq.com/). I say this, as like you - I moved towards this for local-first file storage, where content can be edited on any device with any editor and where I have more control over my data.

    I did try obsidian briefly, but eventually gravitated towards Notion for knowledge and project management - but found that the bulk of the content I put into this would eventually go stale/unused simply because content was not linked and would instead be held in a table, within a project/area full of other pages of notes.

  • Outline

    The fastest knowledge base for growing teams. Beautiful, realtime collaborative, feature packed, and markdown compatible.

    How does this compare to outline?
