Since a couple of months I use to write down into files my findings whenever I research a subject at work (sometimes also at home).
I keep all those notes in a git repo, so I can manage them easily (different computers, versioning, publishing, etc.).
At some point, when the number becomes big I lost track of which notes I have and where. That's why I decided to start tagging them so I could write some automation to look for my notes in a given subject.
A very simple example of note:
Testing in python tags: python, testing here comes the content of the note.
For more examples of notes you can check the repo, but I think the idea is clear: there are some fields (like
tags:) which are used to classify and index the notes.
Recently I started developing some python thingies that:
- Index the notes with their tags
- Can perform searches for a given tag
