House Cleaning

  1. RFC 23: Consolidate Configurations (Private)

Dendron configuration can be overwhelming - we are working on making it less so by consolidating configuration by function via a gradual rollout. This week, we are migrating all command related options to their own namespace. We will migrate the remaining configuration over the new few weeks. This should be transparent to you as an end user - a backup of your current configuration will be created before migrating .


Greenhouse Series - Typescript Development with Dendron and VS Code

In Greenhouse talks, Dendron community members share the fruits of their learning. This may include showcasing workflows, tooling setups, systems, and other topics in personal knowledge management, but also anything that the speaker has in-depth knowledge of that may be of interest to the wider community.

All talks are recorded and made available on YouTube after the fact.


In this talk, Kevin, Dendron founder, will go over his workflow for Dendron development using typescript and VS Code.


  • VS Code setup: extensions and settings
  • process for breaking down a task
  • using Dendron to augment the development process
  • test and debug process
  • questions

Dendron Reading Series

This week's entry in the Dendron Reading Series. Small update to the format - the entry for the reading series will now be pinned in the #teatime channel which is now open for everyone!

Personally, I find few things as frustrating as trying to get Siri to understand me. Voice recognition is one of those things were the difference between 95% and 99% accuracy matters.
