AnyType for Zettlekasten

Hi y’all.

I want to use AnyType for the Zettlekasten method. Here is how I have managed so far based on this YouTube video:

  • Created a custom object type for fleeting notes (initial annotations) with custom note templates for notes
  • Created a custom object type for literature notes (summary/key points) with custom note templates for notes
  • Created a custom object type for permanent notes (organizing for an article to write) with custom map content template - this is where you link to the fleeting/lit notes and create the knowledge graph.

Here are my questions:

  • Is there a more efficient way to manage the custom object types/templates?
  • I am stuck on the permanent notes bit. I need to be able to setup bi-directional linking (i.e. in each of the notes, I need to be able to link to other notes). Then I need the knowledge graph to show the relations between fleeting, literature, and permanent notes. This is trivial in Obsidian using the [[Link]] notation, is there an equivalent?

I know this is vague, so I will try to clarify if folks have questions. Thanks in advance!

Oh, that’s interesting. I would like to visually see how you did it.
