Do you use any "note taking" systems / tools for developers?

Hi everyone!

I have just joined the community and this is my first question on the forum :slight_smile:

So I’ve been using GitHub Gists for years now for documenting tutorial notes, useful code snippets, etc. (and love the whole write markdown, read html idea) but I was wondering if there are better alternatives for long term note taking, especially regarding organising and categorising them in a more logical order than just a pile of random .md files.

Any personal systems that you developed yourself or perhaps some interesting tools?


I have just been using the notes app (macOS) - you can create folders - there’s no markdown or anything, though, so it’s not ideal. I guess you could use a github wiki or a webapp maybe if you want a way to keep it all organized, and keep the markdown.
