Writing Notes

Notes are simple text files with some extra flavor, in the shape of Markdown syntax and support for extra properties (see [[note-properties]]).

Foam Syntax

Foam uses standard markdown, with a few added twists:

  • the title of a note (e.g. in the [[graph-visualization]]) is given by precedence based on:
    • the title property (see [[note-properties]])
    • the first # heading 1 of the file
    • the file name

Markdown Syntax

With markdown we can style our notes in a simple way, while keeping the document a simple text file (the best way to future-proof your writings!).

You can see the formatted output by running the Markdown: Open Preview to the Side command.

Here is a high level overview of Markdown, for more information on the markdown syntax see here.
