While I have so much to say about Obsidian, for now I will only point you to the Kindle Highlighter plugin as a proof of just how incredible this application actually is. Ok, here are a couple of essentials as well: Day Planner and Kanban plugins. These are all md files!

@kaa It’s really a great app. What kind of writing do you do with it?

@matti Good question! Slowly adding things to it, but for now all my day work goes in there, meeting minutes, kanbans for all my projects, general notes for every project. Daily planner. I now have all my Kindle notes and highlights synched up as well! Recipes, reference notes. Things I don't want to forget. A real brain organiser. I haven't gotten into writing anything more as my other appa fit that space better.

@kaa It's good for general purpose note taking, too. If you happen to be interested in something more principled: You might want to give note taking in the style of the German sociologist Niklas Luhmann a try. :)

@matti @kaa … which is called the Zettelkasten method. Somehow the most important part went missing from my last post. Obsidian works great for this way of note taking. 👍

@matti Yeah, my biggest issue with Zettelkasten has been the linking back between articles. It hasn't flowed, rather I have found that the x method really works for me (I cant find the link explaining the method but it was something I picked up from Merlin Mann in one of his numerous podcats).

@toddgrotenhuis Kind of. So say I have a new project at work, and I want to capture all my meetings on a project, the note title is:

workxname - meeting

At work I have further subdivisions for each project general, meetings, emails

If its a project at home:

projectxname - general

project and name are all abbreviarions (prj, per, fm - project, personal, family). So when I want to get something its prjx and it will filter all the notes for projects. The x means that this character doesnt show up randomly...
