The Complete Computing Environment



org-roam repository on GitHub. Org Roam is Roam Research in org-mode maybe. a Knowledge Management Tool for Emacs org-mode in nonlinear Zettelkasten fashion. It is for now the root of my personal Knowledge Base, the repository which feeds my Arcology, where I develop thoughts and make plans, and where the CCE is developed. It is configured quite simply, with a keymap exposed to me on <SPC>r via Evil Leader. One of these days I'll build a cleaner abstraction defining these maps.

List of Things to Fund

Rather than install org-roam with the system wide load-path, on systems with home-manager it's included through MELPA. To build from local checkout: #+ARROYO_HOME_EPKGS: overrides/org-roam.nix which injects this override in to Arroyo Emacs's package index:

org-roam = {
  src = /home/rrix/Code/org-roam;

I unconditionally need sqlite3 installed in my home-manager:

{pkgs, ...}:
  home.packages = [ pkgs.sqlite ];

My org-roam configuration is basically pedestrian, I can hit <SPC>r to get to the org-roam-prefix-map keymap below which includes all the sort of functions I would want to perform on a node or to browse to a new one. Pressing M-. in insert mode will allow me to quickly link to any roam node.

(use-package emacsql-sqlite3)
(use-package buttercup)
(defun cce/org-roam-mode-hook ()
  (setq-local completion-at-point-functions
              (delq 'tags-completion-at-point-function completion-at-point-functions)))
(use-package org-roam
  (org-mode . cce/org-roam-mode-hook)
  (setq org-roam-v2-ack t)
  (setq org-roam-directory (expand-file-name "~/org/"))
  (setq org-roam-directory (expand-file-name "~/org/"))
  (setq org-roam-link-title-format "%s")
  (add-to-list #'org-roam-mode-sections #'org-roam-unlinked-references-section)
  :bind (:map evil-leader--default-map :prefix "r" :prefix-map org-roam-prefix-map
              ("aa" . org-roam-alias-add)
              ("ar" . org-roam-alias-remove)
              ("f" . org-roam-node-find)
              ("g" . org-roam-show-graph)
              ("i" . org-roam-node-insert)
              ("k" . org-roam-ref-find)
              ("Ka" . org-roam-ref-add)
              ("Kr" . org-roam-ref-remove)
              ("l" . org-roam-buffer-toggle)
              ("L" . org-roam-buffer-display-dedicated)
              ("r" . org-roam-node-random)
              ("Ta" . org-roam-tag-add)
              ("Tr" . org-roam-tag-remove))
  :bind (:map evil-insert-state-map
              ("M-." . org-roam-node-insert)
              ("C-c r" . org-roam-node-insert)))

I have a lot of work still to expand upon this, but for now I just use the defaults. These are not included in my configuration:

(setq org-roam-capture-templates '())

(add-to-list 'org-roam-capture-templates
             '("d" "default" plain #'org-roam--capture-get-point
               :file-name "${slug}"
               :head "#+TITLE: ${title}\n"
               :unnarrowed t))
(provide 'cce/org-roam)
