Plain Text Journaling ·

This is really quite similar to my neovim notetaking setup, with a bit more structure. I particularly enjoyed their vim-specific improvements, like using iabbrev to shorten common words (like todo and done to · and ×, respectively) and formatprg for automatic todo sorting. And using syntax highlighting was a beautiful detail. (I'm filing these away as todo list items for myself, to be honest.) The post also comes with a #nix flake too. As an aside, I intend to start gathering info about nix, since it looks quite promising as a system setup tool. I've never quite been happy with ansible for those purposes, especially when it comes to local dev.
