  • The problem would be global link renaming. You don't want every link to be replaced with a new ID; you want every unique link to be replaced with a new ID, and every recurrence of a link to be replaced with the same ID as its siblings. While bash…
  • Yes! But not as soon as you might like Please be patient for a while longer
  • Solved with v1.3.1, available today!
  • The best hack to "flag" stuff in notes comes from Merlin Mann: My trick is to end the file name of all my most frequently used or referenced files with a certain number of “q"s. Why? If I type "qq,” I whittle down to 15 or so greatest h…
  • Now that you bring up the topic of granularity, I remember another thread of discussions on the blog: You could, theoretically, put your whole Zettelkasten into 1 big file, and instead of linking to different files, you link to different headings wi…
  • That sounds even clunkier than, say, installing a dokuwiki or zimwiki for your own use. Too many steps to create and link stuff, which means you'll do less of that in the long run. Yet I think you could write a Jekyll helper that looks for [[...]…
  • That package works great, too! Thanks @Basil This would be the script I end up with (accepting pasteboard as input, aka stdin): #!/usr/local/opt/python/libexec/bin/python import parsedatetime, time, sys input = sys.stdin.read() parsedTuple = …
  • This particular outlining feature is not on my task list, but I do think the upcoming scriptability milestone will enable us all to figure out how to script stuff like this. The functionality The Archive will expose can change in the process, and we…
  • @mvock Sure, here you go: https://zettelkasten.de/the-archive/roadmap/ @Vinho and @depraff I think 3rd party scripts like the abovementioned zkviz are a good place to start. When the next milestone is reached, y'all be able to script and interact…

  • Thank you very much! Rather than being just an app for notes, it made me question what a note is? And from there, the doors opened for a much more insightful way to think, learn and discover. It'd be cool if you write more about the w…

  • Whoa, crashing is absolutely not expected. Sorry to hear this! Please email me the crash reports. You can find them when you launch Console.app from Spotlight, go to "User Reports", and then select all that start with thearchive-. The Console app…
  • No, that's too far in the future to make an estimate. Just watch the updates
  • I guess one could make the PAT_LINK into an optional argument when running the program: ... -i --identifier Pattern used to find links to other notes. Default: [[(\d+)]] This would open up support for Wikipedia-style links where the title is …
  • Cannot stress this enough, I think @gescho is spot on with the emphasis of splitting notes for personal association networks and publishing, and all the good stuff that stems from it!

  • It should be where this is pointing to: pip list -v | grep zkviz I'd like to suggest downloading a ZIP from GitHub (Or git clone if that's your schtick), then calling pip install -e . in the resulting dir to use a local "development" copy th…
  • I proposed a fix in a pull request: https://github.com/Zettelkasten-Method/zkviz/pull/3 For those of you at home wanting to follow along, just change line 19 according to my diff to this: PAT_ZK_ID = re.compile(r'^(?P\d+)\s(.*)\.(?!=\.).*$') …
  • Yes, it's part of the upcoming scriptability milestone!
  • @sjhogerzeil Sure! I'm experimenting with Markdown parser improvements on the side and ship them with 1.x updates, but the issue you describe could persist until I give the parser my full attention. I work on the features on the roadmap in their res…
  • I never heard of this before, but I'm intrigued In hindsight, it's no surprise that of all humans beings it had to be Adler to write a book called "Syntopicon".

  • You're not missing anything: We deliberately don't show file metadata because it's not very reliable in all cases and focus on file name and file content instead. Of course now I wonder: Why do you ask? / What do you want it for?
  • Sounds sensible to me. Your example of Human Behavior [[201812061423]] is driven by Mental Models [[201812061423]], which are expressed in Sense Memories [[201812061423]] ... likely won't make sense if "Human Behavior" is not enclosed …
  • Welcome! It'd be super interesting to have you share your experience about the "hard" sciences and the Zettelkasten Method with us some day! There must be a way to make it work
  • This is tied to the Markdown highlighter, and I'll get to tidying up lists eventually
  • Depends on what you got If you, like the Professors at Bielefeld University, have Work docs full of lists, then grab yourself a doc-to-Markdown converter and plain-text-ify your stuff. Throw it into your archive. Maybe add a tag like #_imported …
  • Initially, I used incrementing counters for parts of the ID, too. Because the tooling was so bad, I had to manually create the ID. Got on my nerves rather quickly, so I resorted to an always-unique timestamp.
  • Can you send me the more recent crash reports? Should be stored in Console.app > User Reports (you can email from there directly)
  • This is especially awkward since I rely on the macOS link detection stuff I'll investigate! Thanks for the great work uncovering this!
  • Can you test clicking on different parts of the link? I wonder if the domain after the @ is treated as a web link overwriting the existing email link at that location. I cannot reproduce the link opening in Safari at all at the moment. Could you sha…
  • The short answer: No, you don't need to. The long answer: File extensions are used by macOS to determine which default app to open the file with when you run the open command in the Terminal or double-click the file in Finder. So if you have e.g.…
