A local-first, non-linear, outliner notebook for organizing and sharing your personal knowledge base.
Use it to organize your todo list, to write your journals, or to record your unique life.
Logseq is a platform for knowledge sharing and management. It focuses on privacy, longevity, and user control. Notice: the backend code will be open-sourced as soon as we’re sure that the backend service meets the security standards.
The server will never store or analyze your private notes. Your data are plain text files and we currently support both Markdown and Emacs Org mode (more to be added soon).
In the unlikely event that the website is down or cannot be maintained, your data is, and will always be yours.
Please go to https://discuss.logseq.com/c/feature-requests/7.
How can I use it?
Make sure you have registered a GitHub account and already created a repository (could be an old one). Currently we only support GitHub, but more sync options (e.g. Gitlab, Dropbox, Google Drive, WebDAV, etc.) will be added soon.
Visit our website https://logseq.com/.
Click the "Login with GitHub" button in the upper-right corner.
Following the on-screen instructions, install Logseq app on your selected repository.
Start writing and have fun!
