Do you guys write on a notebook or have a digital file for notes?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/computerscience

Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • LearnThisRepo.com - Learn 300+ open source libraries for free using AI.
  • Joplin

    Joplin - the secure note taking and to-do app with synchronisation capabilities for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS.

    My favorite note-taking app is https://joplinapp.org/

  • 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.

    I do interstitial journaling using Logseq. Basically you just write whatever (markdown formatting supported) and use page tags [[like this]] to mark the topic your notes are about.

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • org-journal

    A simple org-mode based journaling mode

    As mentioned elsewhere, I too do a mix (happy to talk fountain pens and paper if you’d like). But for digital, Emacs is the supreme solution. It has tools like Org-roam for Zettlekasten-style notes, Org-journal for a developers journal, Org-babel for literate (or Jupyter-style) explorations. Nothing else comes close. Oh, and the “E” stands for extensible, so if it doesn’t do what you need, you can make it yourself.

  • org-roam

    Rudimentary Roam replica with Org-mode

  • doomemacs

    An Emacs framework for the stubborn martian hacker

    It does have a steeper learning curve, and the joke is that configuring Emacs is a lifestyle. But I highly recommend Doom Emacs to get up and running fast. As a bonus, a helpful person blogged about setting Doom Emacs up.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
