On Heptabase and its Developer Ecosystem
Dear Mr. Chan,
很高興見到你! I am Sunghyun Cho, a computer scientist based in LA and Seoul. I am also a contributor to GoogleChrome/web.dev, Facebook/docusaurus, Vercel/Satori, Logseq/Logseq, Etc. I came across Heptabase and wanted to speak with you!
First of all, I want to show my support and love ❤ towards anyone contributing the rethinking the Extracranials (-- my terminology of external thinking support software)!
- Creating Next-gen Digital Brains https://cho.sh/w/D8FB8E
As you can see on my website, I am heavily obsessed with Digital Brains on the web. My entire research page (https://cho.sh/r/) runs on heavily customized Obsidian, Nota, and Docusaurus, serving as my daily note-taking platform after figuring out Logseq Publish, Obsidian Publish, and Roam Garden did not suffice my needs.
I am recently experimenting with Visual Thinking tools (okso.app was an interesting one), and you would know that there aren't any open-source/open-data/developer-friendly services in the market yet. As much as I hope Heptabase becomes an Open Core model (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-core_model), it doesn't seem that's feasible shortly, considering there is still a paywall upfront. However, I would love to explore Heptabase's native APIs and endless possibilities 🚀
Now I would like to ask: Would there be some sort of... in the near future (within six months)?
- Markdown-Wikilink import/export
- API support (Notion-like?)
- Handwriting/Pen Support (iOS App)?
- Any open-source works
- Free-to-use Service
- Extension APIs
P.S. I love your work and blog and have always enjoyed reading your English/Taiwanese articles. I never knew Taiwanese → English translation evolved so well! Anyways, if you need any Korean 🇰🇷 translation support or anything I can help with, I'm more than happy to! I know a community of 900+ individuals interested in Heptabase & Visual Thinking.
感謝您, and I look forward to your response! 🇹🇼🇰🇷🇺🇸
(I just studied Taiwanese Business Letter 101 — Apologies if these are wrong 😅)
