Jumped on the Obsidian train - was keeping my notes in markdown already for some time, but it got a bit disorganised - now hoping to bring back a bit of structure with Obsidian's organisational features. Syncing everything between my phone and my PC using Syncthing.
@johanbove I thought #Obsidian was cloud based rather than #localFirst?
I tried #Dendron on my laptop with Noteless on my mobile device with #SyncThing to synchronize them.
While it was all very fancy, I, eventually went back to #FreePlane with Noteless for ideas that occur away from home, then copy to #FreePlane when I get home. If I have to search something that is not visible in the SVG of my #FreePlane diagram, I use A code on the raw XML.
It's not fancy, but it works and I trust it. Dendron freeplane localfirst obsidian syncthing
I also don't get why #Dendron eschews file hierarchies. The plugin does organize notes, but a file tree just seems like a naturally useful structure that shouldn't be ignored.
I also had issues with the meta-data, specifically timestamps, which were annoying to adjust to match externally created notes.
@strobelstefan @panigrc @johanbove #Foamed was, indeed, one of the many #PersonalKnowledgeManagement tools I looked at. It has been a while, so I forget why I chose #Dendron instead, but I vaguely remember that it might have had to do with the relative maturity of these two projects rather than the feature sets.
There are a surprisingly large set of very similar tools out there, some with very little to differentiate them from others. Dendron FOAmed PersonalKnowledgeManagement
