Welcome to the Functional Programming Zulip Chat Archive. You can join the chat here.
imagine I've written a note A. some time later I write another note B that is tangentially related. I want one to link to the other, what do I do?
folgezettel choice is up to you, depending on how you want them to appear in the hierarchy (zindex and the 'uplink tree' on top of zettels).
if non-folgezettel, it doesn't matter if it is A->B or B->A. They will appear in the backlinks of another note anyway
Sometimes, you might want to create C, and then folgezettel connect them to [[[A]]] and [[[B]]]. So you have a triangle, with C on top, with A and B below.
That's all dependent on what the note is about.
I get confused about which link to use and when all the time
I have no idea of what kind of link will lead to a fruithful zettelkasten in the future
maybe [] was a mistake, like you said in another topic
I don't think [[..]] is a mistake. If you happen to use just that (and no folgezettel links), then that means you have to use the "More backlinks" section for navigating your zettelkasten, with both the uplink tree (the thing above zettel) and the z-index being not at all useful, as they operate on folgezettel links. Also note that the future of neuron is such that it may well move towards using exclusively [[..]] links, with folgezettel ([[[..]]]) being used to "curate" the published site's navigation, all the while the backlinks sections becomes more feature-rich, with the z-index supporting a more general graph view (discarding folgezettel). For details, refer to today's planning chat: https://twitter.com/sridca/status/1304445587908112384
Design and planning for what's coming next for neuron:
- Less monolithic: neuron "core" separated out from publishing
- "core" is just wiki-links (`[[..]]`)
- Plugin mechanism to extend (eg: publishing, code evaluation, pandoc plugin run)
that makes sense to me, I was already slowly moving towards using [[[...]]] for indexes and sub-indexes and [[...]] for references, but maybe I'll make these a rule now
