I’m about to start working on the Org-roam side buffer revamp. The current version was hastily designed, largely copying from my prior work using side-windows, and built around the constraints of org-mode. I’d like to not repeat this mistake, and at least have some mocks of the buffer first before diving into building it. For this, I’d like to gather some user feedback. I welcome any pictorial designs/descriptions of what you would like to see.
Here are some of my own pain points:
- It is currently impossible to specify what one would like to see in the side buffer. Some people would like to also see forward links. The buffer can also get crowded, and it is difficult to collapse them.
- One can only have 1 org-roam side buffer, and only for the currently viewed org-roam file. The side buffer can’t be split as the user desires. Window management with the side-windows is a pain in the ass.
