Notion Vs Dendron
Dendron is your IDE for General Knowledge, see how it stacks up vs. Notion.
Notion is an online notetaking workspace for teams and individuals. Unlike Notion, Dendron is fast, local-first and open source, giving you control of your data so there's never any downtime. You'll never wait for a note to finish loading in Dendron 😇
A Knowledge Base that Scales
Most PKM tools help you create notes but slam into a wall retrieving them once your knowledge base reaches a certain size threshold. That threshold varies with the tool, but virtually everything stops working past 10k notes unless the user was extremely diligent about organizing their knowledge. Past this threshold, entropy wins and every query becomes a keyword search and scrolling through pages of results.
Dendron's mission is to help humans organize, find, and work with any amount of knowledge.
It not only helps you create notes but also retrieve them - retrieval works as well with ten notes as it does with ten thousand.
Fast and performant
Did we mention we're local first? We'll never send your notes off your system unless you want to explicitly. We also have easy guides for syncing with GitHub or you can always use your own service (Dropbox, Onedrive) to sync your notes wherever you want. Because you own your data.
Extensible and open-source
Dendron is built into VS Code and can take advantage of all the extensions you've come to love. Whether you want Vim keybindings, mermaid diagram support or snippet support, the extension ecosystem has you covered. And if you can't find something that you need, we also offer Hooks so you can build advanced workflows, right into Dendron.
