Best Practices

Naming

We recommend using all lower kebab case when naming your files. For example, awesome apples would be awesome-apples. This would be stored in your file system as awesome-apples.md.

Dendron will auto-generate a human friendly title based on the last part of your hierarchy. By default, Dendron uses title.sh to generate titles based on your note name. Titles generated are consistent with the Chicago Manual of Style. Dendron will replace - with a when generating titles.

If you end up adding custom capitalization to your file name, Dendron will not attempt to generate a title but return the last part of your hierarchy as is.

Some examples below:

- awesome-apples.md -> title: Awesome Apples
- fruit.awesome-apples.md -> title: Awesome Apples
- fruit.Custom-Capitalization -> title: Custom-Capitalization
