Logseq, un logiciel de "Personal Knowledge Management" non linéaire

Hi all,

This is just to discuss and maybe make you discover new open source projects :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
I don’t know whether you know and/or use Roam Research, a “Personal Knowledge Management” software, which is a kind of mix between an outliner note taking software (workflowy) and a non-linear wiki (TiddlyWiki).

It’s becoming quite trendy since a few months, and I’m personnaly convinced that it’s one of the best note taking / productivity software ever made, once you have well understood how to use it (hint : not like a traditional note taking software). The problem with Roam Research is that in addition to be quite expensive (15 USD a month) all your notes are hosted in their server and as always, who knows what will happen the day that company will decide to go bankrupt or sell your notes to the best offer…

Thankfully a few open source clones are now starting to take shape. Among them, Logseq and Athens seem to me to be the best offer. They are both evolving very fast. Athens has a slightly more elegant interface, but it’s far behind functonalities-wise, and uses a kind of database format that is quite scary for the long term. Logseq uses just a bunch of .md files, one per note, which is perfectly resilient and should outlive the software, should it disapear. Also, eventhough it’s in Athens’ roadmap, they don’t yet offer an online version.

It looks like Logseq could be quite easily installed as a custom webapp, so I may have a look and try to have it installed on Yunohost. Should it be the case, I would tell you here for those who would be interested. Meanwhile, you should definitely give a try to the desktop version.

Happy discovering :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Hi @Limezy
Did you find a solution to deploy Logseq on Yunohost ?
At this moment I’m interrested to try this app to see if it can help for my professional learning :slight_smile:
