Software engineer for over 20 years. Long time user of plain text to organize my engineering logs. While plaintext is great to get your thoughts out of your head, it’s not great to make connections and organize your ideas. In the past, I tried wikis, but found that they have too much friction.
Before LogSeq, I tried Obsidian. It was almost perfect, except for the damn keyboard shortcuts. As a programmer, I’m used to VSCode shortcut combos. Then I started looking at LogSeq. I was relieved that it had the same keyboard combos as VSCode, and became a convert when I found out about its powerful features.
I’ve been using LogSeq since last October. My only complaint so far has been the occasional issues with data sync, but I’m willing to stick through with them to support this project.
