Remember that you will need this to maintain your indexes...


I tried org-roam a bit in 2020. If I remember correctly it required a
database, it used IDs that were too long and not very human-friendly,
and the notes had to be put in files that also had human-unfriendly
names and that had to be in Org mode... what happened was that 1) I
hated it, 2) I gave up playing with it after just a few minutes, 3) I
didn't learn much about how it works, 4) I didn't "integrate it with

"Integrating org-roam with eev" would mean two things:

  1. eev would have a function `find-orgroam' that would work like
     this. This sexp

       (find-orgroam "Foo Bar" "Blitch Blep")

     would open the org-roam notes about "Foo Bar", and would search
     for the first occurrence of the string "Blitch Blep" there,

  2. `find-here-links' would recognize when "here" is a note in
     org-roam, and would generate a temporary buffer with links like
     this one:

       (find-orgroam "Foo Bar")
