Trying Denote for Note Taking
I’ve been using
org-roam for some time for my note taking.
One of the practical problem is I’m used to Markdown so much, that switching
org syntax does not come naturally to me.
The other day, I had to look the syntax for
begin_src - which is just
3 ticks in markdown.
So I checked to see if there are note taking packages in emacs that support
taking notes in markdown, and thus I came across
To my surprise, the frontmatter used by
markdown-yaml filetype in denote,
is very close to the frontmatter used by
hugo SSG. (Denote has an extra
identifier which is not there in hugo.)
So here is what I did after above was written as a “note” in
I copied the file which has following components
So original filename looked like
I copied the file to the
content/post/ folder and renamed it to retain
just the title.
When previewed with local hugo server, it worked flawlessly 🎉
I removed the
identifier attribute (even though it worked with it, doesn’t
mean I should keep it)
I plan to add a tag
blog in denote - which I’ll remove when I move the file.
I have not explored denote much (at all?) but the first impression is good.
