      CherryTree vs OmniOutliner opinions
      This alternative is disputed. CherryTree is still a legitimate alternative to OmniOutliner, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      The thing I love about OmniOutliner is the fact that each row of data in the hierarchy can have multiple columns, which is very convenient UI for structured data. CherryTree doesn't support this.
