An Extendable Obsidian Publish Alternative using Next.JS

The problem with Obsidian publish alternatives As an Obsidian user, I know firsthand the power of bi-directional linking within a single vault. I wanted to create a landing page for Fleeting Notes that captured the same power. But when it came to customizations, the options were limited (I wanted a landing page + a blog). I've tried many solutions (e.g. quartz) but I haven't found one that hit all my criteria (from ChatGPT) below: Compatibility: Not all Obsidian Publish alternatives may be com

How to Connect your Notes (Obsidian, Logseq, etc.)

With apps like Obsidian and Logseq, building connections between notes has never been easier. Simply add double-square brackets and you’re good to go.

A Home Widget (iOS / Android) for Fleeting Notes

Let me get this straight, I love link-based note-taking apps, the features, the plugins, and the community. Everything is fantastic, except for the speed of taking notes.

Since I'm not up for manually transferring notes from a quick capture app to Obsidian, I decided to create an alterna

Improve Note-taking by Organizing Notes like Code

Note organization is very opinionated. There is no shortage of ways to organize notes and everyone seems to have their own method of doing it. Although these methods are great for the short term, as the number of notes grows it becomes difficult to manage notes with these self-made systems. Funnily enough, the very same thing happens to programmers as well. As code gets more complex, it becomes harder to manage code. Now the difference between the two is that poorly managed code has real tangib

How I Migrated 1000+ Users from Firebase to Supabase

When beginning my journey as a Flutter developer, I thought Firebase would be the best backend solution for Flutter. Given that both are made by Google, I thought this would be the backend that would be the most stable and flexible. I was wrong. The lack of full native Dart support, slow build times, sketchy workarounds, and no desktop support led me searching for another solution. After many hours of research, I was faced with the choice between two frameworks: Appwrite and Supabase. Both were
