I’ve tried several tools and processes over the years for capturing and organizing notes. My most recent favorites have been Scrivener by Literature & Latte and Visual Studio Code by Microsoft. Both provide really rich and customizable environments for keeping details and assets related to life’s many project in order.

There are many well respected options available for cloud-based note storage. The downside of these that each typically includes an ongoing subscription fee, lack of portability, and/or tiered plans where key features are locked behind tiered subscription plans.

This video by Alan Young exposed me to Logseq, an open source solution that stores locally and has some really amazing organization features. It’s one of the first tools I’ve seen in a while that really excites me.
