In the August query sprint, there will be two live lectures. The first lecture was a crash course into note structures, boolean logic, and queries.
Watch the full replay on YouTube:
- Query = request for information.
- Query language = (simple) computer language to request information from a collection of notes (a database).
- Quickly and precisely search your notes.
- Understand best practices for structuring your notes.
- Power workflows to use and expand your notes collection.
Logseq is an outliner, which helps you to structure your thoughts in a tree-like structure.
- Leaves = individual bullets (blocks).
- Branches = collections of (nested) blocks.
- In Logseq, every bullet is a block.
- The smallest unit of knowledge is the block.
- In other apps the smallest unit is the page.
- Blocks can be combined in branches or on pages (folders in other apps).
- Pages are nothing more than collections of blocks.
- By indenting blocks (using
Tab) you create relationships; parent-child and sibling relationships.
- Parent blocks have one or more blocks nested underneath.
- Sibling blocks have other blocks on the same indentation level.
- Logseq is an outliner, which helps you to structure your thoughts in a tree-like structure.
- Links with
#hashtagspoint to pages.
- Because of bi-directional links (linked references), pages are entry points into your notes.
- Links are the most important search terms for queries.
