It's open source so it won't be for everyone. The UI is not as slick as other apps like Obsidian, for example. However, if you prefer to write in a true outliner, or you want maximum flexibility, then this is probably the better of the two and is definitely worth looking at.

It's more promising so far than any other bazillion note/calendar/todo/journaling apps I've tried in my life so far. Handwriting was the only hold up for me with OneNote, even when the UX is a bit crappy with it, and with Whiteboards I think I'm done with OneNote.

Logseq changed the way I take notes. I used to use Notion as my primary note taking system. Notion was not my first either. I used Evernote. Then moved to OneNote. And then moved to Notion. I was using Notion for a long time. But I felt Notion felt too heavy. It takes a lot of time to load. And it was very difficult to organize my notes. I had two options. If I want to take down some notes, either I need to find where I can put the notes or, I need to put them in Quick notes and later move them to relevant notebook. And opening different pages was very slow. I started looking for other choices. I found another category of note taking apps like Obsidian and Logseq. I tried out both. I loved the features of Logseq. So, I'm using it for a month for now. I'm stuck with Logseq for two reasons. The note taking is local. I keep the notes in local disk and sync it with git. This makes the note taking feels so fast. The second one is the way Logseq organizes the notes. I don't have to think about where to put notes. I can just backlink them wherever I'm writing the notes. When I want to look back at something, I find everything I need at the same place

There are minor issues to work through, mainly the UI/UX, but at this stage, I am unable to function without this solution. The biggest issue it solved for me was that when I'm trying to capture information, I need as little friction as possible while capturing. Logseq's daily journal combined with the bi-directional linking makes it much easier to capture information while working much closer to how our brain functions (less static categorization and more linking between ideas).

Logseq is the note taking tool I have been waiting for. I've used paper, Evernote, OneNote, my own custom mix of SimpleMind + NeuralNote (an app I developed for Android to match the notetaking style I wanted), and finally Logseq. I have tried Obsidian. It is much more polished and has a more mature plugin marketplace, but IMO in it's effort to be more user friendly it has lost something that Logseq excels at; something worth a lot. If you use Logseq and adapt your notetaking to its outlier approach, you can effectively make Logseq your second brain, legitimately. With Logseq I can pause and resume thought chains when I don't and do have time for them, losslessly. I can examine and correct my thinking and provide a chain of custody for the thoughts that have led to the decisions I've made. It took me about a year to develop my current notetaking pattern in Logseq - I was too used to working with OneNote/Evernote/etc. that I wasn't leveraging the graph-based system effectively. Now that I'm fully on board, it's life changing.

Logseq is excellent for recording notes and ideas and finding connections between them. The way it links between pages is especially helpful. I usually do not have to do any manual organization of pages, yet can still find what I need. Logseq is an awesome tool and I would highly recommend that anyone looking for notetaking, brainstorming, or general life organization software give it a try.

As a long-time Evernote user, Logseq seems to fit my PKM needs more efficiently (and securely) than Notion or other similar cloud apps.

Very solid PKMS with infinite outlining as a central mode of writing. FOSS project with a vibrant and fun community. It's easy to jump in and make contributions. Think of some way you could improve the product? You can write custom Javascript that gives you the full capabilities of their plugin api. I highly rate this PKMS. It's an exemplar of the power of FOSS

I just started dumping my thoughts and #tagging them as I saw fit. After sitting down and setting up some default queries I am on top of my life like never before.
