WoxWiki

A note taking personal wiki solution to capture my life.

After getting fedup from a myriad of tools which didn't satisfy my thirst to effectively, correctly, and seemlessly capture my thoughts onto the digital media, I finally decided to write my own solution. This is how WoxWiki was born.

But since I'll be using this for life, it's important that my data is stored in something portable. Flat-files although being portable, are largely a pain because they don't have a structured format (and XML sucks). So, all data is stored as markdown inside a sqlite file (which will allow for easy exporting).

Everything resides as a page. There are no namespaces or portals like other traditional wikis (mediawiki), because organising content is hard. It's pure cognitive load which we shouldn't have to think about. Multiple categories, and multiple tags will solve this organizing issue for us.

    • Heirarchial category structure
