  • Addendum: Also the note list is not re-sorting when changes are made by external software until I hit ESC. Probably related enough to mention it here.
  • To amplify a specific part of what @ctietze said, when I have had paralyzing fears like this in the past, they have frequently come down to a fear of doubling effort. It's usually something like "If I do this the wrong way, I will have to do it agai…
  • "Hm I'll just start a discussion in public about a deeply complex idea essential to how I think. There's no way that could lead to an existential crisis! It'll be fine!"
  • I am reminded of our discussion about using ZK for creative writing here. Something that's fascinating about the plain text approach is that there is an eroding of the usual boundaries of form and content, which has the potential to do... something?…
  • My workaround for this is to do the search in Finder and limit search to "title contains." It's not optimal, but on the other hand it's a great example of why plain text software-agnostic approaches are best
  • I am doing pretty much precisely this. I don't have as much need for formulae and citations, but for inline images I work in parallel in either The Archive or Emacs with Marked open next to it. Especially makes doing things like making sure tables a…
  • I think "Zettel" is a specific subset of "Note". "Note" can include such as a scribbled phone number or other misc information. A "Zettel" is a note that is * deemed worthy of inclusion in one's Zettelkasten (so, for example, my TODO items abou…
  • I'm really liking both of these. Thanks for the new themes both of you! (for those coming along before @nickmilo22 puts in a screenshot, it's a dark semi-Solarized look, but with some interesting custom color choices that I think are really nice).
  • @Eurobubba said: (Part of me wants to say use Unix hard links, but I don't think those play very nicely with sync services either.) stares grimly off into distance They most definitely do not.
  • @sobertruth said: I will consider this—I especially like the file id idea and connecting them with plain text notes, since the Archive is becoming the center of my workflow. Is the directory just one folder or a hierarchy? I have a hi…
  • As an alternate perspective: I just keep my documents (mostly PDFs and docxs for the kind of work I do, also writing, but more fiction as well as articles) in a dedicated directory (which has the advantage of being synced by dropbox as well), but I …
  • What I really want here is deft to have some kind of option to use whatever search strategy works for the user. So, default would be native deft search, but I could set a flag and use ag, someone who likes xapian could use that, etc. I have no idea …
  • @EFLS I can speak to my own experience here, which is, yes, using the interface to filter notes is desperately slow (~900 notes for me). Initializing deft takes about 8 seconds. The first letter I type into the filter interface takes about 4 seconds…
  • I'm noticing a behavior that I'm not sure if it is intentional, or if it existed previously. If I select part of a text, go to a different note, then go back to the original note, the selection area is still selected. In other words, selection area …
  • I think you are correct @ctietze . I actually do most of my searching with helm-agrather than deft internal search.
  • @Will said: @mediapathic your suggestion or desire to get a feeling as to the value of a note by delineating notes by "most-to-least used" is a good one and one I to wish for. This would require more than software magic. So I've implemented a man…
  • Yes indeed, 1.1.8. I'm adding this sentence because the forum system thought my statement was too short to post.
  • @Will: thanks for doing this. I've implemented it with Alfred (I can do that with this one!) and it works great. One question, for whomever: would it be possible to change those sort commands to list the tags in order from most-to-least used? …
  • @pinkhurricanegown I think the issue is not with deft per se, but with emacs. I hear complaints about slowness from a bunch of people on /r/emacs who are doing unrelated things, it seems to be just the case due to the internal structure of emacs …
  • I'm currently experimenting with Hyperbole. I agree with @pinkhurricanegown that it's actually about five packages crammed into one and yeah it's very 2001 Monolith, in a number of ways; it's a giant thing that makes no sense but if you touch it may…
  • @Will said: Keyboard Maestro is so helpful here for us who are deaf, dumb, and blind to EMACS. Don't feel bad, emacs is less an editor and more a Questionable Lifestyle Choice.
  • @magnus said: Also @EFLS use in Zetteldeft https://efls.github.io/zetteldeft/#orgdc68570 Oh right! I always forget that he put that in there.
  • @ctietze said: @mediapathic what does you tpl-journalentry.txt look like? My templates are very ... minimalistic. Oh it's very minor, I just made it when I was experimenting with templates and thought it was going to be more complicated t…
  • @ctietze quick form question: you have several lines beginning with :. Does this indicate anything other than an alternate form of list like -?
  • @ctietze said: @mediapathic Ok, you won. Hooray! Thanks very much. Now I have something to point people to when they are confused as to why I send them documents with things like 201902200146 in them.
  • I briefly played with making a visualization like this using dot language, but this looks much more extensible than my probably-never-actually-realized idea.
  • (setq org-capture-templates '(("J" "Journal" entry (file+olp+datetree "~/Dropbox/Writing/Zettel/org/Journal.org") (file "~/Dropbox/Writing/Zettel/org/tpl-journalentry.txt")) ))
  • I'm hearing this sort of request from a number of places. It seems to be a common sticking point for people getting started, it certainly was for me. @ctietze your example files are fantastic, but Evernote has again broken their web viewer and I (us…
  • This is great! I love the random number method. Any chance that script will end up on melpa eventually?
  • @magnus on further experimentation: it looks like the search-project ones are specific to spacemacs, but helm-ag works as an approximation (it doesn't search at point though, it'd be nice to figure that one out). But the projectile-find-file-dwim is…
