Trithon109024dCare to elaborate?
For years my notetaking has consisted of just editing text files and saving them under my cloud directory. And the problem with this is that though I have a powerful editor for it, I have no real system for retrieving a note after the fact. I would name a note file with something having to do with its content, or maybe the date and time. It depended. So usually, a note was never seen again after I wrote, saved and closed vim.
I've never really been much of a plugins person with vim, as I considered it to be mostly just expensive flash. A prime example is the effect airline has on start times. So anyway, I never bothered. But within only a week or two, both Derek Taylor and Brodie Robinson dedicated videos to a plugin called vimwiki, and both were very enthusiastic in their support and recommendations.
So I tried it out, and after only a day or two I was completely hooked. The internal markup is extremely simple but powerful. Filling it out has generated a dozen files or so, with file names I would never have chosen, but creating and navigating them is effortless.
I cannot recommend it enough.
Trithon109024dgotcha! thank you!
