About This Site

sylund.net is running on Google App Engine with Python. The data is stored in Google Datastore, a cloud-based database.


I named this project as mind flows, or m-flows. I want to create an easy and fast way to store ideas.

I found a hierarchical structure such as the unix directory structure feels most intuitive. As a result, a flow (a document) has its parent and child. There also will be an alias or symbolic link to reduce duplicated content in different paths. For example, /about/publication and /research/publication could point the same document. I am also most comfortable with a markdown syntax to write things, so I am using a custom markdown syntax with my own rendering engine. The markdown syntax is primarily influenced by Dokuwiki.
