Hey Product Hunt!
I started Logseq as a side project in February of last year. I’ve been using Org-mode (which is similar to Markdown but has more features) to manage my ideas, tasks, and notes. It’s incredible, but I need to access my notes on mobile, and I want to build a graph on top of the growing notes to make it easier to ask and answer some questions and see the connections between different topics.
It’s pure luck that many users came to try Logseq and contributed to our community, coding, videos, documentation, and give us valuable feedback every day.
Our long-term vision is to build a privacy-first platform/community for knowledge management and collaboration.
For the personal knowledge base, we believe:
- Your data is yours, forever.
- Interoperability with other tools, no lock-in, no proprietary formats
We choose plain-text Markdown/Org and standard syntaxes for data longevity and better collaboration with the existing ecosystem.
- The ultimate fun is to change the code and do some nasty tweaks. That’s why we open-sourced Logseq, and we’ll release the new plugins API soon.
