    1. As easy to use as a word document or bulleted list, and as powerful for finding, collecting, and connecting related ideas as a graph database. Collaborate with others in real time, or store all your data locally.

      DarkRedman They're very similar because of the "second brain" method, backlinking, Zettelkasten support

      kpathakota Still local notes, but way more full-featured since it uses VS Code as the editor and embraces heirarchies so your notes don't get so unwieldly.

    6. The problem with notetaking apps like Evernote or Apple Notes is that once you write a note, after a week you never look at it again. Without any organization, you're stuck praying that search will work for your future self.
    7. SiYuan is a desktop Markdown Block-Reference and Bidirectional-Link note-taking application. Support fine-grained block-level reference and Markdown WYSIWYG.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      WYSIWYG is far more important than I thought. Besides, the data in SiYuan is .json, which allows better redering-performance and Notion-like typesetting.

    8. Easy to create. Easy to understand. With Hypernotes you can finally express your knowledge in a natural way – easy to create, easy to expand, and – maybe most importantly – easy for others to understand. Stop writing notes. Start creating knowledge.
