Roam is not an outliner, even though it has outlining features in it’s editor. Roam is a Personal Knowledge Management tool built around linking, either pages or blocks, (paragraphs if you will) to each other. In this way Roam is more like wiki than an outliner.

Said differently, Roam is to an outliner as the Windows File Explorer is to an outliner.

I was curious, so I created this simple one page blog using Little Outliner.

I am following Dave’s writing about the integration of Little Outliner with apps like Obsidian and Logseq.

First off, there is an existing standard for using double brackets, it is an internal wiki link and the expected action is that it automatically links to a page that exists within the app hosting and editing the content. Usually what is between the double square brackets is the name of the page. If the page already exists, clicking the link loads that page in the app. If the page does not already exist, clicking the link creates a new page with that title in which one can then edit.

One of the things to wrangle through is the difference between navigating through these pages within the app and publishing the content to a web server or a file format like PDF.

For example, when I use Obsidian, I can control-click a wiki link and that opens the associated page, but if I publish that source page to a PDF, you see the brackets but there is no link.

You will notice at the top of this page there is a link to a new Reading page, where you can see what I am currently reading along with links to books I have finished reading and want to read.

I agree with The Verge, that the Shortcuts app needs to provide a way to silence notifications. And, it needs to fix the Close App action for Personal Automations, which currently only works when you switch between apps but doesn’t work when you return to the home screen.

Further troubleshooting of my Personal Automations finds that if I switch from the opened app to another app then the close app event triggers in the automation, but if I just close it to go to the Home Screen, it does not. I wonder what that means?

I have a few Personal Automations on my iPad that should trigger when I open and close an app. Up until a recent update to iPadOS, or to Shortcuts, both triggers worked but now the close app trigger does not work. I read that when first released Personal Automations only triggered upon open but there was no option for closed and it looks like some code was reverted in a recent release.
