link-as-search vs link-as-direct
I've been doing all of my links as
[] Name of file, due to The Archive prioritizing link-as-search, which I think is core to the discoverability aspect of Zettelkasten. However, I'm playing with a bunch of other markdown-based tools, and there seems to be a tendency to prefer
[[202005091413 Name of file]]. This is what I think of as link-as-direct rather than link-as-search.
I'm thinking about my own implementation here, and I'm considering moving to link-as-direct for interoperability with other tools. I think the only thing I'm losing there is, in The Archive, not seeing related links by default. But, I also think that is solved by just I guess backspacing to the UID (or possibly using a KM macro to extract just the UID or something).
I'd like the thoughts of the community on this one. Am I missing something? Am I going to break anything? Anyone have a script for converting all the links in my thousands of files to their equivalent filenames?
(also mods feel free to move this if you disagree with my category choice, I wasn't sure where to put this.)
