    ⚡Rapid note management for the terminal. (by araekiel)

    Can Obsidian and Jot co-mingle in the same vault?

    I use Obsidian and am very happy with the git plugin[0] and Working Copy(iOS)[1] for keeping things automatically synced between my phone and desktop(s). Often I find myself dumping notes into random places from the terminal; feeding markdown via pipes. But I then have to remember to collect these artifacts and ensure I fire Obsidian back up for a push. I'd love something that could work "together" with my present setup.

    Looks like things are set out quite clearly[2], and Rust looks quite approachable. Very cool stuff!

    An Emacs framework for the stubborn martian hacker

    I found Obsidian great, so if this reaches near feature parity and allows me to stay in the terminal, it's a great upgrade already.

    Recently though I switched from vim to Doom Emacs and started learning org-mode. This turned out to quite literally be a career breakthrough for me, as I realized how much easier it is with both to remain productive throughout the day and to manage my personal knowledge base, or second brain.

    I'd highly recommend everyone to try DE out [0]. I always thought Emacs to be unnecessarily complex, but majority of it is hidden away in special features. DE, especially for vimmers, delivers a lot of very useful IDE-like functionality out of the box, simplifies the hotkeys, provides stellar configurability and, in my experience, just lets fingers flow more smoothly across the keyboard.

    Org-mode by itself may seem daunting as well, but it turns out to be designed in a similar fashion - take and use what you need, no hidden complexity or other strings attached. I can recommend Distrotube's tutorials on either [1].
