          Really? If avoidance of proprietary software were your only concern, you could run wild on this extensive list:

          Can someone make a open source clone of this already? Like actually a clone to the standard of LibreOffice.

          because it's not open source

          Recently started using GrapheneOS and it's pretty sweet. I'm free to use whatever proprietary software I want because I know it won't be able to phone home due to lack of network permissions or access any other information on the phone due to solid sandboxing and a mature storage permission system.

          Google keyboard is the best keyboard I've personally ever used, I couldn't go without it in lack of a better alternative, so I just revoke network permissions for it and I'm clear. Obsidian similarly doesn't get network permissions, really not even because I'm afraid of it phoning home, more just because notepads don't need network permissions so I didn't give it to it. I don't take notes on my laptop so I don't need to worry about syncing, I always have my phone on me so if I need to make a note, it's going in my phone anyways.

            I also run graphene, but I use my computer for typing mostly, so I need something that is auditable. Back in the day, when you could get a phone with a decent keyboard, I would type on mine a lot.

      Because notepad can't be made into a wiki-like formatting.

      Obsidian is a personal knowledge database with "quick note" functions a la Notepad. The difference is that Obsidian has [[backlinks]] a la a Wiki to where you can go through the notes/articles you made like Wikipedia.

      There's also the fact it's graphing function is basically a free Vizio if you learn it.

      I fricking wish there was better options. Logseq isn't it, and Tiddlywiki/etc. just aren't as good.

        Sorry for this post, I am beyond tired, and my reading capabilities reached the negative.
        I used LogSeq for a time, then switched to a bare bone web wiki, which is good enough for my usage.

    Who knows. Install Logseq.

  13. 4 weeks ago
    Anonymous

    I've used both Obsidian and Logseq, I liked the way Obsidian did things better, Logseq follows a weird format that works but when I'm writing notes I like to organize them all specific to their purpose. Obsidian does something similar but isn't much of a bother.
    Can't actually recommend either in good conscience, both use Markdown so you're not tied to them, but you need to learn their features to use them. Both are Electron, and I don't want anything I use written in Electron, much less my text editor. Nearly a gigabyte of my space cleared when both were removed, even just Logseq is around 400mb, I can't imagine why either would be so big.
    If you really want to, I'd say use Obsidian and firewall its access to the internet, and then synchronize the actual .md files with syncthing or Nextcloud, if you need to.
    I'll either look for something else in the same vein or stick with the stock text editor that comes with my DE, not really worth it.

    People have been saying to just use OneNote and make single cell tables if you want background colors. But I prefer Obsidian. It does become a resource hog, but that's mostly because my main canvas has thousands of notes on it cause I'm too lazy to save and classify them separately instead of just throwing them in a vaguely appropriate section of an infinite canvas. I also like how pretty it looks, it makes me feel more productive than I really am.

    Obsidian is a good app and has worked wonders for my ADHD. Externalizing information is very important for me. When there is a FOSS alternative with its feature set I will switch. Tested Logseq which is alright and might consider it at the end of the year or something. Moving 1000 notes over seems like a PITA.

    As an obsidian user for many years now I just switched to doom emacs. The complexity of emacs is largely a meme. After a couple of hours all relevant functionality of obsidian I could replace with some equivalent in emacs. Only thing I'm missing is the hover over link pop-up where you could lurk into files without opening them and I guess sometimes it was really nice to put a short video clip into my notes, though I rarely did so.

    Why did I switch? Obsidian sucks for anything that isn't a classical note. In emacs I can do anything related to text files I want. Even with plugins obsidian started to feel limited and with the closed source aspect I couldn't be sure how long it will last. With emacs I can keep learning and using it till my death.

    File tagging is something I don't understand at all for text files. If you're writing in plain text, every word can effectively be a tag using a search tool, like grep for example.

    Back-linking is another one I don't really understand. It's just a hyper link to another note, right?

    The idea that you can slap a bunch of tags and banklinks into a file, and create something useful without any actual intent is the most moronic thing about this whole note-taking fad.

    • 4 weeks ago

      They are just tools for organization. Yes, every word in a text file can be used as a tag but that makes the idea of tags worthless. Tags are essentially about creating deliberate context. With tags you are never searching for files, you are searching for a context. Tags are the only sensible tool if you are dealing with thousands or hundreds of thousands of files.

      I can essentially filter hundreds of thousands of files to the relevant 30 if I input like 3 relevant tags. Without this deliberate system you leave it purely to chance whether the right words are in your text files to be found by grep.

      Linking basically is about the same idea. You never have to remember any explicit file, just the context in which it exists which is infinitely more reliable.
      >create something useful without any actual intent
      It's just another tool. No one is using it for quite the same purpose. Wikis, documentation, paper notes, and knowledge bases essentially all exist for the same purpose of organizing knowledge, just that their structure differs.
