I’ve been thinking, particularly for sharing information with others, it may be useful to be able to create ‘compilation documents’ which combine multiple notes into a single file.
Use case example
I’ve recently started adding interesting snippets of information regarding computing hardware to my network. A tech-y friend of mine may express some interest. It would be very nice if I were able to generate a single combined file I could export to a PDF and send them.
Take some minimal example network of notes. A query is performed on a particular vertex.
A DFS is then performed alphabetically (just some order) according to the query, and a resultant combined file generated. This could be placed in a sub directory, or a tmp file. It would be opened immediately after creation.
Let’s have this as the sample graph, with the vertices/letters being notes, and the colours representing tags.
All blue notes
* A ** B ** C *** G ** D ** F
Blue, to depth 1
* A ** B ** C ** D ** F
All blue and green notes
* A ** B *** H **** I ** C *** G ** D ** E ** F
Let’s make this extra-fancy and have two query ‘source’ notes — A and J.
Brown, and connected green up to depth 1
* A ** E * J ** K ** L ** I
Currently, I just have this idea. I certainly don’t have the time to implement it in the near future.
To prompt conversation though, I thought I may as well put the idea together and share it.
If someone else is interested enough to try to whip up a prototype, that would be lovely
