I’ve brought this up as part of the twitter thread about journaling, but I think it’s worth asking explicitly. One of the forms of data I capture with Kinopio is and question and answer.
What is the best way to “encode” this?
In the context of personal knowledge management and journaling, I’d like a way to reference my answers. Is there a way you were thinking that would make querying for this easier?
thanks for asking, things get lost in long twitter threads
I think the first option: parent + connected children is the canonical kinopio way to structure this. Maybe with the parent being also loosely tagged. As for querying it, that’s a harder question.
The place I’d probably start with answering this is making an easy api endpoint to query for cards connected to a specific card.
From there at least there’s a dev-friendly way to float/track this data programmatically.
Longer term, I’d want to build an interface to be able to search cards, and optionally display their children in the results.
That’s really good to know. AFAICT, there’s no directionality of connections indicated in the UI, right? I know I can tell from the API, though. So, by child, do you mean cards where connections end?
That’d be neat. I can currently accomplish it via the API, but something more direct would be useful.
that would be sweet (displaying children of a card result)
there’s no directionality of connections indicated in the UI, right?
not yet, I have really ambitious plans for how to do this in the future
