I am getting obsessed of finding a simple tool/app to let me easily document the work I have done each day, write notes about it, and document the things I have learnt.
In essence, it is something like a daily journal, but I want to be able to categorize the different things (progress on iOS app, learning swift, learning design, …) and also be able to publish this data to the Internet for others to benefit from. For example, they get to see how I broke down a complex app to simple tasks that I tackled one a time, how I solved a specific problem, how/where I searched for the solution. Would also be helpful for clients to look at my process and my way of doing the work.
Things I have looked at:
- Todoist, although great for task management, lacks the ability to publish to the internet, having comments on the tasks
- WordPress blog, Tumblr, Medium.com: lack an integration with a task management
I think I need something that combines task management with documentation/daily logging.
I asked this question on Reddit and people offered various suggestions (Wikilog, Zim Wiki, Tiddly Wiki, PyWiki, Ghost, Pollen, Clitch, Fossil SCM along with Chisel and Camlistore), but they are not good enough:
It is mostly due to how they present the data and the constraints imposed, for example, some platforms organizes posts by recently edited or recently created, but I need a way to display both at the same time (a way to filter between the two ways). Another important thing, they are created for Wiki-like websites and not blog/personal/portfolio type of websites so they look odd for my needs. Finally, they need some degree of manual management and making sure that the server has the latest data and so on and so forth …
