  • A tour to my Zettelkasten note clusters

    Worth mentioning here that LogSeq can work with markdown or org-mode files. In my personal setup one of my LogSeq nodes points to my file which holds all my bookmarks, web-resource pointers and associated notes. This way I can bounce between working in Chrome, emacs and LogSeq all referencing the same underlying data model. (With Orgzly for a read-only view on my phone.)

  • Listing tags in org-roam
    2 projects | | 2 Jan 2022
    Looking around a bit I found this code on github which gets very close in doing exactly what I wanted, only issue is that for some reason the first letter of each tag in the Taglist file is missing and I don't know why...

    What I'm trying to do now is look at org-roam-mode.el and use the backlinks function as a model to create a function showing all tags to add as a section in the org-roam buffer.
  • What do you use to organize your campaigns?
    2 projects | | 23 Dec 2021
    Org Mode. Keeping notes of what all is in my setting in one header, notes of the campaign in another header, sometimes with a to-do list to prepare a bit of what to expect. Been thinking of giving org-roam a shot to manage some of the more convoluted stuff as well.

    For note taking, I use org-roam, an obsidian-like tool for emacs (my text editor). For each article that I've read, I have an org-roam node (a note with proper tags) that I can reference later.

  • Neorg OR orgmode.nvim
    8 projects | | 18 Nov 2021
    The best tool for writing notes and tracking TODOs is Emac's org-roam and Emac's org-mode respectively. Neovim has got some catching up to do, but I'm hopeful.
  • What's the difference between Vim/Emacs? Do they do they same thing? New to Linux and can't decide which to use!
    3 projects | | 11 Nov 2021
    First of all, it is focused on Vim keybindings which seemingly most people prefer over Emacs keybindings (because Vim is a far more popular editor despite Emacs being the more general, more fun and more powerful editor, easier to configure with the better extension language). However, I strongly suspect that most of those Vim users are not aware that the Evil package actually provides a better Vim than Vim itself (as this is very poorly advertised, e.g. try to find this info in any editor comparison/poll website. Really, Spacemacs is very much 'under advertised' but despite that, you'll find that it still ranks among the top five editors on e.g. I guess another reason for Vim's unjustified much higher popularity is the difference in startup time, but believe me, those few seconds are very much worth waiting for, and b.t.w. after starting up once, you will never have to close Spacemacs again, well almost). But you can also try both type of keybindings and decide for yourself, by doing the Emacs tutorial for 5 mins, and then do the vim tutorial for 5 mins. But besides that, Emacs is the most enjoyable editor. It has amazing introspection/self-documenting features, also it provides beautiful packages like org-mode and magit (and org-roam is gaining popularity also) and it provides edebug that is another great tool for inspecting/discovering the editor.

  • Good app to take notes in class
    4 projects | | 8 Nov 2021
    Here's some reasons: - You are a CS student and mastering Emacs (to a certain level) could help with other parts of your studies in addition to serving as your dev & notes environment. It will encourage you to learn Lisp/functional programming which might give you different perspectives (and you'll likely have a functional programming class sooner or later anyway) - You can easily practice literate programming. Mixing code & notes in single document. - You will get various export options from Org (PDF, Markdown, HTML etc). This could come in useful for writing actual papers or reports for school. And you can do it in the same environment in which you made those notes. - As needed you can add LaTeX support to handle citations/bibliography and equations. All while being in the same environment you are writing code and notes in. - You could also add something like org-roam to be able to cross-link ideas a-la Zettelkasten method. This might be especially useful while doing research into new topics and condensing information (which you will likely do during your studies). This is modeled after Roam Research which is quite well known in academic circles I believe.
