Over the past weeks I’ve been reading up on #zettelkasten note taking. I really like the idea that I don’t have to worry about hierarchy or “what goes where” when taking notes. Just dump everything in the same folder and tag stuff if necessary but even tags are not compulsory. Then finding stuff works by searching, not navigating some hierarchy. This last point is a big change for me, having previously used #emacs #orgmode
@mmin Are you talking about shet that is kinda diametrical to org mode? But ain't org kode religion to some folks? What happens next?
@leadore Yes, I’m settling on Deft now after briefly looking into Zettlr. I really like the incremental search aspect of it. I mostly navigate my emails through search these days too.
@mmin I've been using Zim wiki and have considered switching to Deft since it would be more convenient to use with org format notes.
With Deft all notes are stored in one directory, which works well for the zettelkasten method, but I like to use multiple notebooks. So I'd either have to put each in a subdir and have Deft recursively search them all, or write an elisp function to let me choose which "notebook" to switch to and set the Deft directory variable to that dir. 🤔
