I’ve been switching things everything from Notion but still having trouble getting a few “list” type databases to work to emulate the functionality. A while back I stole an idea from Ali Abdaal on a Resonance Calendar. In Notion, this is a database where records are linked ti pages etc.
How I use Notion as a Resonance Calendar - YouTube for everything you read, blog posts, watch etc. You get the idea… The idea being a processing stack for helping you apply what you’re absorbing and incorporating it. it’s worked well.
In Logseq, I am trying to build a query to effectively grab everything with tagged res or with tags for movie, book, post, course, etc etc and then have it displayed in a tabular format with specific fields in the frontmatter (so for instance have I “processed” this entry) and then returned as a numbered list in reverse start date format.
So end goal arriving like this:
|1.||DeFi Orientation||#Course||****||[[Aug 29th. 2021]]||[[Aug 30th, 2021]]||Nat Eliasson|
|2.||Doom Patrol S01||#Series||[[Aug 27th, 2021]]||HBO|
|3.||Molecular Biology of the Cell 5th Ed||#Book||[[Aug 26th, 2021]]||Alberts et al|
|4.||The Double Helix||#Book||***||[[Aug 18th, 2021]]||[[Aug 25th, 2021]]||James Watson|
Where of course the tags or #links in the page or frontmatter allow it to be derived (I’m also hoping to use this same technique to show subcategories like my books read etc.
Is there any way to currently pull this off in Logseq? I’ve tried a few different throws at this but not being a datomic expert nor clojure dev nor the internal structure of pages and tags etc in logseq had me mostly thrashing on this one.
thanks for any help on this or getting it a bit closer.
Also, if there is a way I should restructure my pages for note taking (which currently are sectioned and just use the hashtags – not tags: xxx – like yaml front matter at the start of the doc) to make this easier on myself, do let me know.
