    Project mention: Ask HN: What do you use for note-taking or as knowledge base? | | 2024-01-01

    I keep absolutely everything in a single folder. Saved documents, images, movies, financial records, game saves, it doesn't matter. My hierarchical naming scheme takes care of organization. On the odd occasion I actually need a folder, I just append ".d" to the filename.

    I use . as a hierarchy delimiter, so file extensions are just part of the hierarchy, and I can have multiple files with the same name except for the extension. For example, "film.spongebob.png" is a photo of spongebob, "" is a note about spongebob, and "film.spongebob.s1.e7" is my favorite episode.

    I use org-roam [1] for note-taking and task/time-management. I absolutely require a plain-text system so it either had to be markdown or org-mode. Emacs was the deciding factor, else I would have still been using Dendron [2]

    If OneNote is your thing, I'd probably recommend Obsidian [3] over org-roam. Despite it being the greatest program ever created, Emacs is a lot to learn "just" for taking notes.

    If you like VS Code, check out Dendron. It's the one that got me into more serious PKMS instead of just chucking notes in a folder all willy nilly.

  • khoj

    Your AI second brain. A copilot to search and chat (using RAG) with your knowledge base (pdf, markdown, org). Use powerful, online (e.g gpt4) or private, offline (e.g mistral) LLMs. Self-host locally or have it always accessible on the cloud. Access from Obsidian, Emacs, Desktop app, Web or Whatsapp

    Project mention: Show HN: I made an app to use local AI as daily driver | | 2024-02-27

    There are already several RAG chat open source solutions available. Two that immediately come to mind are:



  • markor

    Text editor - Notes & ToDo (for Android) - Markdown, todo.txt, plaintext, math, ..

    Project mention: A structured note-taking app for personal use | | 2023-12-21

    Just curious, any reason you're using TMarkor instead of Markor? ( ,

    Only asking since this was also the editor I ended up settling on in Android, but it seems like TMarkor is just a repackaging of Markor without any references to its forked(?) source.

    My requirement was that the repo had to be open source so that I could audit the repo and compile the APK from source, as well as potentially fork it for personal modifications if needed.

  • orgmode

    Orgmode clone written in Lua for Neovim 0.9+.

    Project mention: People who used both neovim orgmode plugin and emacs orgmode, how would you compare them? | /r/orgmode | 2023-12-07

    Hi, I'm a nvim user for quite a long time already and I don't think I'd switch to Emacs. However I'm curious if I could use Emacs for orgmode, since I'm not always satisfied by orgmode for neovim (still, kudos to the authors for the amazing work!).

  • orgzly-android

    Outliner for taking notes and managing to-do lists

    Project mention: Orgzly (org-mode android client) has a fatal bug for over four years?! | /r/orgmode | 2023-06-18

    Funny enough there has been a commit that solves it and they just abandoned it.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • organice

    An implementation of Org mode without the dependency of Emacs - built for mobile and desktop browsers

    Project mention: Ask HN: Self-hosted alternative to Apple Notes? | | 2024-01-31

    With organice you can host your notes on Gitlab for free and the backend becomes "git". You get web apps for Windows, iOS and Android.

  • org-roam-ui

    A graphical frontend for exploring your org-roam Zettelkasten

    Project mention: Personal Knowledge Management Graph Visualization Tools for Neovim | /r/neovim | 2023-06-17

    I recently came across this software called org-roam-ui, a tool to visualize Org Roam's Zettelkasten in a graphical way. is there something like that for neovim? I use vimwiki as my PKM and was wondering if any of you know of any tool similar to org-roam-ui that works well with neovim, specifically with Markdown files, for visualizing one's PKM system.

  • vscode-org-mode

  • org-web

    org-mode on the web, built with React, optimized for mobile, synced with Dropbox and Google Drive

    Project mention: Orgmode is amazing | /r/orgmode | 2023-03-04

    If you stick with Orgmode, what I used was it's pretty great

  • org-ql

    A searching tool for Org-mode, including custom query languages, commands, saved searches and agenda-like views, etc.

    Project mention: Packages that you would like to be in emacs core ? | /r/emacs | 2023-12-11

    Also Org-ql, maybe with some sort merging with org-agenda (Because writing configurations of org-agenda is a PITA, too.)

  • org-super-agenda

    Supercharge your Org daily/weekly agenda by grouping items

    Project mention: org-super-agenda: Supercharge your Org daily/weekly agenda by grouping items | /r/planetemacs | 2023-09-04
  • org-noter

    Project mention: Annotating pdfs and keeping track of your notes - app recommendations request | /r/AskAcademia | 2023-06-26

    I use org-noter: Emacs document annotator, using Org-mode.

  • Memacs

    Project mention: Show HN: Khoj – Chat Offline with Your Second Brain Using Llama 2 | | 2023-07-30

    Might look into some of the tools like novoids Memacs. Notion here is to build tools that push feeds, history data, into Emacs. Using org in your use case with the Khoj tool, could be the "glue" you need to tie it all together.

  • org-transclusion

    Emacs package to enable transclusion with Org Mode

    Project mention: Tangle-Up versus Tangle-Down | /r/LitProg | 2023-05-20

    Long term: request here as a feature to make this customizable. Once implemented, you would be able to customize this value with `M-x customize-option`.

    Emacs minor mode for making Anki cards with Org

    Project mention: Is orgmode really that much better than an equivalent workflow using vim + other tools? | /r/orgmode | 2023-05-29

    Also, I sometimes use flashcards, they really help me to remember the material. I am creating flashcards using a package called anki-edior. My flashcards are my notes. I don't need to go somewhere else to search through my flashcards.
