I think I will continue with the combination of Visual Studio Code and Dendron for my personal knowledge base.
In the aftermath of the Microsoft “hot reload” controversy, I was wondering if it would be a good idea to stop using Visual Studio Code and switch to something with less corporate influence. However, after thinking things through, I think it makes sense to wait a bit longer and see how this plays out first. The community response was swift and clear, and Microsoft reversed the decision to remove “hot reload” functionality from the .NET SDK.
Based on this outcome, I am going to see if Microsoft has learned their lesson. In the short term I will continue using VS Code and Dendron so that I don’t derail my PKB project again. At the same time, I am going to evaluate some other editors and tools with a longer-term goal of replacing VS Code with something less encumbered.
Continuing to migrate my existing notes into Dendron.
