Welcome to FluxGarden!
The Simplest Backlink-y Digital Garden app to host both your public and private sense-making.
No idea is an island: everything is connected. And no idea is ever finished (except in retrospect).
So writing in a system that lets your refine an idea, jump off in a new direction, re-connect, re-discover, and refine again, probably works better for your thinking.
And sometimes variations of those ideas belong in public and sometimes they don't. So making it easy to switch spaces, and cut/paste from one to the other, with the same formatting, is handy.
So FluxGarden keeps it simple.
You get 2 gardens: 1 private ("inner") and 1 public ("outer") (for an example, see mine). (Under the same subdomain which you pick, like "alice.flux.garden".) Both spaces give you:
- the same Markdown format, and double-bracket linking for Backlinks;
- a nice front-page of most-recently-updated pages, with excerpt;
- an RSS (Atom) feed.
Everything is browser-based, so:
- you don't have to do separate installs on your laptop, your tablet, and your phone;
- you can bookmark;
- you can open different pages in different windows, and move/size them however you like;
- it's *your* browser, so whatever you've picked, and however you've customized it, all comes through.
For a little more flavor, see Getting Started With FluxGarden (which includes a video).
Who makes this?
- I'm Bill Seitz. (Alone for now.)
- I discovered wiki in 1999 and immediately started using it for my private notes.
- I switched my blogging to a "wikilog" in 2002.
- I created a hosting service for them in 2003.
- I wrote and self-published an ebook Hack Your Life with a Private Wiki Notebook: Mash Up "Getting Things Done" and Other Systems in 2013.
- After using forks of other people's code, I finally moved my wikilog "outer garden" to a system I built from scratch in 2016, and moved my private "inner garden" to the same code in 2020. By this time, I have 18k pages in the outer garden, and 3k in the inner.
