- A project led by jeff tang.
- go https://github.com/athensresearch/athens/
- Probably the best roam like soon; but it is currently still in closed beta.
- clojure, datascript based.
I/O with Agora will probably be through something like roam2agora (to begin with).
- https://github.com/athensresearch/athens/issues/98 for export support.
- See also: athens (Agora plan: the Agora should resolve "see also" blocks.)
- A roam like.
- A vscode extension -- like foam.
- Supports hierarchical workflows.
- github https://github.com/dendronhq/dendron
- Recommended by reddy2go.
- To get started:
- [x] sub-module for private garden.
CANNOT BE DONE, gh-jekyll complains "The submodule registered for
./Wallscould not be cloned. Make sure it's using https:// and that it's a public repo. See https://docs.github.com/en/github/working-with-github-pages/troubleshooting-jekyll-build-errors-for-github-pages-sites#invalid-submodule".
- [ ] retrofit
foamto run with restructured-text (not just Markdown), see foambubble/foam#474.
You can use Foam for organising your research, keeping re-discoverable notes, writing long-form content and, optionally, publishing it to the web.
Foam is free, open source, and extremely extensible to suit your personal workflow. You own the information you create with Foam, and you’re free to share it, and collaborate on it with anyone you want.
- roam like. A vscode extension.
- go https://foambubble.github.io/foam/
- As of 2021-01-04, my personal agora client.
To use foam: - Fork its template repository: https://github.com/foambubble/foam-template/. You can use any name you desire for your repository. - Install vscode if necessary: https://code.visualstudio.com/download. Launch it. - Select 'clone repository' -- if you're using github, log in with github. Authorize vscode to make changes to your account. It sometimes requires you to retry once for some reason. - vscode should offer to install recommended extensions. Say yes. - You can now use foam: - Press alt-d to start a new daily note (your journal). - Write wikilinks to link to other pages. - Control-click them to visit existing linked notes or create them if needed. - ctrl-p to open an existing note. - ctrl-shift-p to bring up the vscode command palete; you can search for any command and see keyboard shortcuts. - Whenever you want to commit to your repository (and the Agora), save all files and use the "branch-like" icon on the left toolbar to review changes and write a commit message. - You may need to set a user.name and user.email in git. To do this, open the terminal in vscode and type: - git config --global user.name "Your Name" - git config --global user.email "firstname.lastname@example.org"
From the Github README:
Logseq is a local-first, non-linear, outliner notebook for organizing and sharing your personal knowledge base.
Use it to organize your todo list, to write your journals, or to record your unique life.
The server will never store or analyze your private notes. Your data are plain text files and we currently support both Markdown and Emacs Org mode (more to be added soon).
In the unlikely event that the website is down or cannot be maintained, your data is, and will always be yours.
Not currently open source, although they say they will release it.

- roam like, but didn't set out to be a clone as athens apparently did

could be a better default agora editor than foam
- easier to use
could be a better default agora editor than obsidian
- server components not quite, but coming soon
- open source
- browser based but also offers an app (electron)
based around git, like the agora
- can create a repository for you
defaults to org-mode instead of markdown but they now (as of June 2021) support markdown well
- uses isomorphic git
- oauth support
Desktop Markdown editor for Mac, Windows, and Linux that has built in backlinking, wikilinks, and Zettelkasten support.
License model is free for personal use, they intend to have paid licenses for commercial use, much like the licensing model for IDEs. Personal users pay for early access and other community features.
From the home page:
With Obsidian, your data sits in a local folder. Never leave your life's work held hostage in the cloud again.
Plain text Markdown also gives you the unparalleled interoperability to use any kind of sync, encryption, or data processing that works with plain text files.
From the about page:
Although we call it a personal knowledge base or your Second Brain, we also like to think of it as an IDE for your notes::highlight. You can think of an IDE as a powerful frontend that tries to understand your code, such as where are functions and variables stored, what are their types, and by doing so make it super easy to navigate code and get suggestions as you type.
They used to work on Dynalist.
- for note taking/pkm; an agora editor
- go https://obsidian.md
- forum https://forum.obsidian.md/
as of 2021-05-07 the recommended closed source agora editor.
previously I had tried it after roam -- but I left it behind for foam on due to it not being open source.
- this thread was what sealed the deal, didn't make it sound like open source was likely to happen anytime soon: https://forum.obsidian.md/t/open-sourcing-of-obsidian/1515. I then wrote https://flancia.org/go/why-not-obsidian.
- foam seemed more easily extensible to me, but obsidian plugins (community maintained) tend to be great and open source.
- as of 2021-05-07 I'm back to obsidian from foam. I no longer think it's a deal breaker as pro-social companies might need to refrain but being fully open at all times to remain competitive in the market, and Obsidian's business model (where they charge for optional features like sync and do not block community solutions in the same space) seems fair to me.
- see defoam for a description of the migration process.
- obsidian is faster, a bit more polished and has a great community extensions market.
- previously I had tried it after roam -- but I left it behind for foam on due to it not being open source.
aka the best markdown editor on the planet!

Publishing a knowledge base with org-mode
This personal wiki is written in org-mode style plain text and exported to HTML.
Oh man. Just discovered org-download. So useful!
Works best with 'import %s' to my mind. gnome-screenshot blocks the window, whereas with import I can still tab around and select which window to capture and all that.
I use this to get a better layout in org-agenda.
Dang, the marking and performing actions of multiple items in the agenda is super useful. Especially to think you can write your own arbitrary function to run, too.
I added this via the pdf layer from spacemacs. It's handy for sure.
A tool in the pkm space.
- That is, a tool that is in some way like roam research, or more generically a note taking tool that supports wiki conventions and backlinks.
- pull pkm roam likes
- If you use roam research, it is not hard to make the jump to:
"A note-taking tool for networked thought. As easy to use as a document. As powerful as a graph database. Roam helps you organize your research for the long haul."
I currently use Roam for my private note taking. I practice making a daily Worklog, taking notes on meetings, running a lightweight CRM, and managing my personal TODOs with it.
- go roamresearch.com
- Probably the lead in the personal knowledge management space.
- It is like a personall wiki with the following extra features:
- Unfortunately not open source. Has an extension ecosystem but that's also closed.
- pull roam likes
