@matilde how absolutely nerdy are you willing to be, here..?
*rubs hands together in an unmistakably emacs-user kind of way*
@gnomon I’m intrigued. You track this in emacs?
@matilde in org-mode specifically, yes.
I found emacs to be very intimidating at first, but I got into it once I started learning topic-specific major modes and thinking of them as small apps relying on shared infrastructure; my gateway was twittering-mode.
Org-mode makes for a nice to-do/note tracker that you can incrementally extend as you explore, with categories, tagging, image embedding, cross linking, state tracking and so on.
@matilde I posted that half-joking reply before I saw that you had already settled on LibraryThing! I also try not to proselytize too much, I know it's super tiresome. But if you're interested I could go on!
@matilde IN THAT CASE 🤩
- http://sachachua.com/blog/category/geek/emacs/org/ - @firstname.lastname@example.org is an absolute treasure trove and a lovely human
- https://youtu.be/oJTwQvgfgMM is a very interesting presentation by the creator of org-mode (but long, ~45m)
- https://youtu.be/FtieBc3KptU is an interesting talk by an author about using org-mode for long form creative writing
- the org-mode manual is good for dipping into one topic at a time but https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/orgtutorial_dto.html is a very good brief intro!
@gnomon this is so much. My goodness
@matilde oh gosh I'm sorry, didn't mean to be overwhelming.
@gnomon no no it’s not bad. It’s just next level ha. I’m very, macOS, workflows and AppleScript. This is just a step up in extensibility
