Add another 'Text' Package



Command-line tool for managing zettelkast documents. The tool primarily focuses on providing unique ids and showing a graph of document connections. It tries to be as unintrusive as possible.

The only requirement is setting the ZETTELKAST_ROOT environment variable to where you want to store your zettels.

What is a zettelkast zettel

A zettelkast zettel is just a normal markdown file with a unique zettelkast style filename. Aside from the filename, you can write your normal everyday markdown with no special consideration of any kind.

  • The first layer of header1 is used as the title when listing with zettelkast list
  • Any links across zettels are just normal links to files. No special syntax or identifiers needed.

Creating a new zettel

$ zettelkast new

It will open your $EDITOR with the filename, defaulting to vim.

Showing the document graph

$ zettelkast graph | sfdp -x -Goverlap=scale -Txlib

The zettelkast graph command will output the connections graph as a dot output, you can pipe it to graphviz to render it.
