    I wrote void for similar reasons, and it has totally changed the way I learn things, approach problems, and track progress. I really recommend people learn how to build their own organizers. Everyone hates the organizers that someone else wrote to some extent, but if its your own baby it’s hard to hate :P Use tools you love.

      I totally agree. I love plain text files. And I only trust and like my own dogfood.

      I’d rather use org-mode. That has an offline-capable mobile app (orgzly/beorg).

        Yup, this seems like the textbook example of an ad-hoc, informally-specified, bug-ridden implementation of Org mode (with apologies to Philip Greenspun).

        I would suggest howdoi as complementary tool

        1. 2

          Lack of an offline work capable mobile app is probably blocker for me.

          But it looks nice and I like the CLI UX design.

            I’ve been using hnb for the past 6-7 years, it’s been a treat so far.

              This sounds really interesting. I use Org mode daily for notes, but seldom review them, and it can be difficult to find individual items. I like the ideas expressed in the article, and I do like the idea of creating my own bespoke system, but don’t want to take the time at the moment. Thanks for posting this!

              1. 3

                Searching Org mode files works really well with org-sparse-tree (assuming that you are adding your notes as subtrees to a single Org file).

                  Thanks! Tried out C-c / r today, and the regex matching is great.

              2. 1

                I love this idea. If I were to make my own knowledge base, I think I’d try to use RDF
