So we're officially at the mid-point of the year today and to celebrate I've decided to use three different note-taking apps for the next 6 months:

  1. RemNote Pro
  2. Craft
  3. Bear

Ok yeah it's a weird way to celebrate (and why would anyone celebrate the mid-year point anyhow?) but I love to tinker and dabble with stuff like this so to quench my interest I decided it would be easy to split up the next 6 months and really give each of these apps a go for my note-taking needs. One thing important about all of these tools is they allow export of notes to Markdown so when I'm done I can get everything back into Obsidian which is the tool I've been using forever. But it's nice to see how others live right? To be fair I used to use Bear before moving to Obsidian but that was Bear version 1. Version 2 is much-improved so I want to give it a go again as well.

First up is RemNote. Similar in philosophy to Logseq RemNote is really geared towards students. That said it isn't exclusive to students and the flashcards and other learning features might go along way to helping me go deeper on learning JavaScript and Typescript which I am now dealing with on a daily basis in my job.

To be accountable in this adventure I'm planning on posting opinions on the days I've been using these tools if I've written down anything of note. In fact I already took some notes yesterday on RemNote when I "officially"switched over to it. Let's see how this goes!

So far I'm digging RemNote. They definitely do things a little differently here, templates being one of them. In RemNote you assign templates to tags and apply a tag to a note/document. This is pretty flexible but has also led me to a bug. I have created

* Love the fact that I can chose the date format for the daily notes, etc. It defaults to "July 1st, 2024" but I prefer using YYYY-MM-DD and this is possible! (unlike Craft) * Looks like they have finally created ways of easily hiding bullets for a whole document (or
