Simple Markdown Zettelkasten

image of networked notes

This is a "living essay," a moving picture of my current opinions and links on how to create a markdown based knowledge system. There is a git-based changelog at the bottom.

Goals

To create a portable, maintainable, extendable note-taking system.

Brief

  1. Content in markdown.
  2. Metadata in YAML frontmatter.
  3. Links using [[wikilinks]]

Examples:

Filename: Meaningful Title.md

# Meaningful Title

Complete, singular thought expressed in plain text. Linking is encouraged to
find the [[Border of the Known]].

Supported Tools

If we maximize portability between applications, we can maximize the longetivity of our system.

I am defining each requirement as part of the above Brief.

My Tools / Scripts

As I have pursued this... I have often wound up creating migration scripts and tools. These will be highly customized to my knowledge base and goals but you may find inspiration or good ideas to steal.
