notes

How do I generate my knowledge base

For quite a few time, I used Bear as my go-to Notes application for two reasons: it was single to use and the syntax was quite similar to markdown. However, it is not markdown and it does not support some things that’d like to see on such software: diagrams, mathematics, wiki-like links, etc.

After searching for a bit I found out an app called Notable. In addition to having all the features I wanted from Bear, it is also storage independent, meaning everything is stored as markdown plain-files that I can version control with Git or some similar software.

This is just a FYI: if you’re interested, I recently added a knowledge base section to the website where I automatically deploy de notes I write with Notable. I actually have some ideas of things to add to these notes when I have time. It’s actually quite simple: just set up a GitHub hook, pull the notes repo, convert them to Hugo’s format and et voilá!
