    Ultimately what I've found myself craving is org-mode without the tie to emacs. I gave it a good try for 6 months but found myself fighting emacs too much, I didn't have the bandwidth to do job, relax and learn lisp+emacs.

    Currently I have a bookstack[0] instance on my VPS which I'm trying to cultivate as more well structured long form knowledge .

    Also giving Joplin a try to see if an offline solution might be better.
