zettelkasten   emacs

[2022-06-18 Sat]

Zettelkasten is an approach to note taking and knowledge management. In this approach, the notebook consists of atomic nodes with the following properties:

  1. Each node has a unique id
  2. Each note contains one idea
  3. Each node links to related ideas
  4. Each node may have tags (optional)

Several digital solutions for maintaining a Zettelkasten exist. I think the solution put forward by Y. Herklotz is straight-forward and feature complete. It is the implementation that I also use.
