    As someone who has been creating plain text notes since 2001 I found in practice daily notes tend to be a bit too scattered. Usually if you're working on something and you want to reference your notes the next day it's a nicer experience to have that in the same notes file as today instead of yesterday. Over the decades I've settled on a YYYY-MM.txt file, or 1 file per month.

    A while back I open sourced which is similar'ish to this tool. It supports opening your notes in any editor (using $EDITOR), launches this month's notes with `notes` but also lets you create notes with `notes hey just writing a note` or sending notes in from stdin with `echo "cool" | notes` (useful for pasting a note).

    Also, if you really wanted daily notes you could easily change the date format to include -%d. After doing notes by hand for so long I initially wrote the script with daily notes thinking it would be better but very quickly reverted back to monthly notes.

    While I don't use it personally there's:

    It's cross platform and works offline. You write markdown and it produces a visual graph of your data. It supports interlinking notes, tags and images too.

    Plain text notes[0] work best for me but I'd probably use Obsidian if I wanted to see things visually. When I tried it out briefly it was really solid.
