I’ve been using Athens for quite a bit of time and as such, I have a lot of notes on it. I just discovered logseq and from my limited interaction, I feel that it is a much better fit for me. It will, however, be a pain to transfer all the notes especially if we were to use block references. I’d love a quick way to import the Athens .transit file format. Thanks!
Hi, thanks for the suggestion. Since the current userbase for Athens is vanishingly small, creating Athens import probably won’t be a priority. But if you can output Athens into a plaintext file format, you or someone might be able to write a small script that can change it into Logseq-compatible files, especially once Logseq accepts standard Markdown.
Hi @Aryan, welcome aboard and thank you for the post.
As someone who has used quite a few notetaking apps over the past year, import/export features are something that definitely need improving across the board. The lack of a standardised
format and model/code though means that I am not sure if this is something that is imminent - Each app has their nuances which makes capturing every single scenario burdensome.
Having said the above, I found that (currently) nothing beats manually importing your notes - it is a pain especially if you have a lot, but this way you can be sure that the links/refs are properly integrated. The other option would be as Cobblepot mentioned to export from Athens and add to your LS directory - having tried this though (not with Athens but another app), you may find you spend more time sorting your notes out than copying and pasting.
Hope this helps
Yep that’s what I tried finally
