    Void hits a really special and niche spot for me. I do a ton of pretty huge penetration tests and often times have a short amount of time to do them it gets very messy to keep everything in my brain when you are running through 2 or 3 /8’s of vulnerabilities and attack chains. Void(map) helped keep me in the terminal paradigm while also still letting me mentally map things, I wrote about this a bit more in-depth for anyone who wants to see a not so standard workflow.

      WHOAH it feels so damn cool to see that all those random features I chucked in there are actually getting used by other people :)

      I use void frequently every day and it’s always heartwarming to see that it has helped others to better understand things that are happening in their lives. While the repo is more or less stalled right now, it’s still important in my life, and I mostly consider it done. Although I do aspire to close out those remaining tickets.

        I was actually hoping you’d see this, since I believe I found void through a thread where you mentioned it here on lobsters. Thanks for your hard work on it, there are a lot of little things that I very much appreciate how much thought you put in. You’d also probably be happy to know that I’ve used this in executive meetings to show visualizations of “attack paths” where I had hundreds of nodes and it was incredibly well received and it’s made it into multi-hundred page reports. This project was actually one of the driving reasons I have been learning rust, I have a small backlog of little bugs that I was hoping I could send patches for, so I for one really hope you keep maintaining it!

      WARNING: this is alpha, and the default keybinds are still weird because I use colemak

      Finally, something will have non-weird keybinds for us colemak users \o/

        My thought was “at least keybindings are reasonable” when I was skimming through the README with one eye closed 3am this morning. (What’s wrong with me?)

          Colemak 4evah! So nice to find a piece of software living in that mode already.

          I was already inclined to check this out because I love rust and I have an unhealthy obsession with trying new thought mappers/todo systems, but the colemak defaults pushes it over the edge!

          Oooooof, this sent me down such a deep rabbit hole, don’t look at the other stuff the author made.

            I’m using void as a daily driver now. It’s been instrumental in managing my time better.

            The priority (#prio) values I use are:

            • Important, Urgent: 11
            • Important, Not Urgent: 7 (tasks which should be scheduled)
            • Urgent, Not Important: 3
            • Not Urgent, Not Important: 1

            I tried using :txt nodes, but I wasn’t getting syntax higlighting in my text editor, as the contents are stored in void.db instead of files. Instead, what I do is have a command like “editor filename.org” and then when I do a Ctrl-K, my editor opens the file, and I can edit it there.

            void has allowed me to chew through tasks at work at a rapid pace.

            Many thanks to @spacejam for creating such a wonderful tool.

            In discussions about productivity hacking at work, I started wondering how we can add effort estimates to tasks. Say, I have 30 minutes to work on something, I would like the random task selector to pick a task for me which could be completed in that time. 🤔

              Nice tool but the repo doesn’t look active.
