Dendron is a text-based, hierachical note-taking VS Code extension. It's a new project and is developed full-time by the extremely talented Kevin Lin. It's also the tool used to create the pages you're reading now.
As with all of my software notes, this isn't an attempt to replicate or improve the documentation. It's a space to explore the specific use-cases and solutions that are relevant to how I'm using the tool.
I started using dendron after exploring many other options, notably Evernote, OneNote and Obsidian Notes. The last of these was pretty close to what I wanted, but being closed-source limited my ability to tinker.
