About The Project

Product Name Screen Shot

Logseq is a great PKM (personal knowledge management) tool, but keeping your knowledge for yourself only gets you so far. As Erwin Schrödinger stated:

If a note is not published, does it really exist? — Erwin Schrödinger

Knowledge is meant to be treasured and expanded, but before all shared. This plugin helps to make that possible, or at least easier.

Note: This project is very much a work-in-progress. Please report issues and questions.

This plugin uses YAML for the Hugo front-matter. It will convert Logseq page-properties to Hugo front matter.

Logseq keywords are lowercase converted to Hugo keywords, and category in Logseq is translated to categories for use with Hugo. Logseq links ([[like_this]]) are stripped of [[ and ]].

All other keywords are just converted to Hugo keywords.

For now you must add date with the posts date in the form of "2012-04-06" to your Logseq page-properties.

date:: 2012-04-06

Configuring Hugo

Hugo does not by default support backlinks. Use a snippet like the following to simulate backlinks. It will parse every page for local links. This snippet should be placed in ~yourhugo/layouts/partials/backlinks.html.

{{ $re := $.File.BaseFileName }} {{ $backlinks := slice }} {{ range where
.Site.RegularPages "Type" "page" }} {{ if and (findRE $re .RawContent) (not (eq
$re .File.BaseFileName)) }} {{ $backlinks = $backlinks | append . }} {{ end }}
{{ end }} {{ if gt (len $backlinks) 0 }}
  <div class="backlinks">
      {{ range $backlinks }}
      <li class="capitalize"><a href="{{ .RelPermalink }}">{{ .Title }}</a></li>
      {{ end }}
{{ else }}
  <h4>No notes link to this note</h4>
{{ end }}

<aside class="related">
  {{ $related := .Site.RegularPages.Related . | complement $backlinks | first 3
  -}} {{ with $related -}}
  <h3>slightly related</h3>
    {{ range . -}}
    <li class="capitalize"><a href="{{ .RelPermalink }}">{{ .Title }}</a></li>
    {{ end -}}
  {{ end -}}


Logseq has several built-in adminitions, namely:

  • caution
  • example
  • important
  • note
  • pinned
  • tip
  • quote
  • warning

These get converted to:

{{< logseq/orgCAUTION >}}Caution here{{< / logseq/orgCAUTION >}}
{{< logseq/orgEXAMPLE >}}This is an example{{< / logseq/orgEXAMPLE >}}
{{< logseq/orgIMPORTANT >}}This is important{{< / logseq/orgIMPORTANT >}}
{{< logseq/orgNOTE >}}This is a note{{< / logseq/orgNOTE >}}
{{< logseq/orgPINNED >}}This is pinned{{< / logseq/orgPINNED >}}
{{< logseq/orgTIP >}}This is a tip{{< / logseq/orgTIP >}}
{{< logseq/orgQUOTE >}}This is a quote{{< / logseq/orgQUOTE >}}
{{< logseq/orgWARNING >}}This is a warning{{< / logseq/orgWARNING >}}

So Hugo needs those in ~yourhugo/layouts/shortcodes/logseq/:


And they should contain something along the lines of:

<div class="caution {{ .Get 0 }}">{{ .Inner | $.Page.RenderString }}</div>

See the open issues for a full list of proposed features (and known issues).

What works

  • Local Hugo links (but Logseq uses one folder for everything, so Hugo does too)
  • Block refs(!) — On conversion the block is pulled from the other location
  • Images
  • Basic Markdown styling (including highlighting!)

What is known to not work

  • Indentation Logseq ➡ Hugo is still a work-in-progress

I would like to thank Alex Qwxlea (@twitter_handle) for the idea to write this Logseq plugin. Also for breaking the plugin after I wrote it. And finally, thank him for adding this note: Qwxlea, you're the best 😁!
