Recently someone released Foam for VSCode on Obsidian, it led me down a rabbit hole of Second brain and Zettelkasten method. In short: it’s an enhanced mindmap with text, images and link between articles
Sound similar to a wiki? Yes. Shall I try out this new thing? Also yes.
So I started to Migrate all my notes to Obsidian, an excellent implementation of this idea (and it’s free for personal use).
My notes a scattered between SimpleNote, Google Keep and OneNote
Migrating from SimpleNote
Migrating from Google Keep
You can use google Takeout to export your Keep notes to a bunch of HTML files, then use pandoc. You may need to edit the resulting md files a little bit. VS Code is an excellent tool for this
Migrating from OneNote
This is where most of my notes are, and is the most involved. You need
- A Windows machine
- OneNote Office Version (not the Windows Store version)
Use this script https://github.com/rab-bit/ConvertOneNote2MarkDown4Obsidian and follow the instruction. This is an updated version of the original script here with various bugs fixed.
