When to use HackMD, when to use Obsidian

  • since HackMD and Obsidian (along with other tools) use Markdown, it's very easy to move notes between them
      1. three dot menu
      1. download Markdown
      1. save to correct directory on your computer
      1. in HackMD (optional, Save As Version)
      1. in HackMD, delete all note content and leave a header at top about # moved to wiki (wiki name)
      1. (if you're using Git) commit and push changes
  • HackMD for synchronous things, like Zoom meetings
    • often "ephemeral"
  • Obsidian for asynchronous, longer term writing
    • persistent, but not real-time collaborative yet
