I enjoy creating plans and workflows for my daily developer activities. Like any developer, I love planning ahead for everything I want to learn, as well as my content calendar and other tasks. It helps me stay organized and ensures that I can efficiently manage my time and resources. Plus, it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I can check off tasks from my plan.

I have been using Notion since the beginning, and it has been a helpful tool for me.Recently I've found that Notion doesn't fully meet my needs anymore and I'm looking for a new opensource alternative. I want a tool that gives me more choices and options to better fit my needs.

What is Logseq ?

Logseq is a powerful and advanced Tool for Thought. It has been available for a few years, which has allowed it to accumulate numerous useful features and establish a decent-sized community of friendly and helpful users.

An Outliner tool

Logseq is an Outliner tool. In simpler terms, an Outliner is a special type of text editor that helps you organize information in a tree-like structure. It allows you to create and edit outlines, which are like family trees for your text. You can break down your ideas into sections called "nodes" and arrange them based on their relationships. It's a helpful tool for organizing and managing your thoughts and information. Outliners may take some time to learn, but once you do, they become indispensable.
