LogSeq notes for awesome linked research notes
LogSeq note-taking application is fantastic and can link your knowledge together in ways you never thought possible. With its atomic note taking features, you can create individual notes that are then linked together to form a larger knowledge base. This makes it easy to find information when you need it.
As a developer, this is exactly what I need. A flexible atomic note structure that I can add to and craft over time to build up a comprehensive knowledge garden on my favourite development topics. I can use bi-directional links to create a graph-type structure that shows me the relationship between subject nodes and their relative importance to each other and the graph as a whole.
This visual graph feature is what makes apps like LogSeq shine amongst competitors like Evernote and Apple Notes. With Evernote for example, you can create a note and then add sub-notes to it but you cannot see the relationship between the note and its sub-notes. You can only see the note and its sub-notes if you open the note itself. This makes managing large amounts of information very cumbersome and time-consuming.
Flexible Note Taking.
LogSeq note-taking application gives you full control over your note structure and adding new note types is very easy. Your note structure can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be and linking notes is easy with bi-directional wiki-type links.

For example, if I wanted to link the documentation of my favourite programming language to a note about a specific coding project I'm working on, I can do that very easily and recall it again quickly later on.
This connection of notes and ideas helps to keep your thoughts organized, easy to find and also helps you to format the information in a way that is conducive to creating your own original notes or text output for essays etc.
