Remnote: excellent Roam Research alternative (for outline-based knowledge management)
I am just more and more sold on outline-based (aka workflowy-like) knowledge management.
Roam Research authors did a lot of work with smoothly implementing automatic backlinking and different kinds of references (as we discussed already in these forum). However, with Roam going now from public beta to pretty audaciously priced subscription version (15 $ / month), I would like to point out at (currently) free alternative to Roam:
I have no connection to them and I do not want to sound it like a cheap promotion, but I am very impressed so far. I just started to play with it yesterday. It has all the features of Roam (incl. backlinks, links to blocks, transclusions, previews etc) + other interested features (e.g. embeddable dynamic searches as part of notes) + very thoughtfully designed architecture (e.g. in contrast to Roam, there is conceptually (in underlying architecture) not a difference between text-block, document, folder, tag, even some formats (like headings), views, filters... - in internal functioning, they are considered as the same "rems" (think "elements") - and all these elements (rems) have some common attributes/features and connections. Such design is very promising as for many (current and especially future, as this app is still rapidly built) features, like searches, interconnections, visualisation of information or some (arbitrarily chosen) parts of documents etc.
Just as an example, also some internal "files" are the same types of documents ("rems"), so you can hack your css (styling of your app/notes) by adding css code to one of the special "rems" (document), which is basically the same document (you can view it in the same editor, edit it in the same way) as any other zettel/note. (But this one has special name "custom css". You normally add your css in the same way as you would add any other text note into your zettelkasten. No need to open some system files etc.)
Second part of the app is for spaced repetition learning, so some users can also connect their zettelkasten with actively memorising some facts from their notes (I am not much interested in it as - IMO - spaced repetition is very hyped at the moment, as typical post-factual hack, cure-for-everything in learning. I believe it has its (very limited) role in learning some knowledge pairs to the level of automaticity (e.g. chemical elements and their abbreviations), but vast majority of learning should be context-based, with rich learning formats and active recalling in context of interconnections of other information, not as isolated "items" of learning, as spaced repetition forces learner to do. But it is another discussion).
My opinion is, that the authors market Remnote too much as "spaced repetition" app, whereas they should stress much more its huge knowledge management capability. So I believe they will be able to find enough interested users who understand the real potential of their app.
Of course, full Zettelkasten system can be easily devised in this system, as many youtube videos show (there are more tutorials for ZK for Roam Research, but there are not practical differences in both apps as for this functioning, so any Roam flow can be applied to Remnote also).
