Leaving Notion for...
Tired of using Notion too? I found something better
This post isn't about development, but it also can be helpful in the day2day work for the software developers.
Why do I decide to abandon Notion in the first place?
I've been Notion-fan for a long time joined it at the early stages. But time passed, and I noticed that it became slow, messy, and complicated. No offline mode makes sometimes the whole thing non-usable.
The main reason I choose Obsidian is because of its approach to storing notes. It uses a local vault which can be located in cloud storage like google disk for the sake of being able to work with notes on another pc and not worry about losing them in case some psycho(could be me???) burns the laptop.
Is it worth it?
In my case, yes.
There is a significant feature gap between these two, but I use it mainly for note-taking so I probably find the ideal tool
- Use my phone to work on the notes
- Use the templates
- Share my stuff with others
- Use it for database or project/task management
If your use case is similar, consider switching too.
But we'll see how it goes in my case.
Also, I have the idea of using private Github repo as backup storage just in case. Stay tuned.
