I've been using this for years, and keep all my notes in a wiki, written in GitHub flavour mark down, with syntax highlighting etc. in the editor. I guess it's not orgmode (which sounds amazing), but it seems really really good to me.
I created the vimwiki_markdown gem which allows you to convert GH style markdown to HTML using the wiki. Now I might just call out to pandoc, but I didn't know about it at the time, and my gem works fine*
I love that you can have project specific wikis etc. It's just so great. I'll also link to the relevant section in my .vimrc if you are going to go down the markdown route.
So often when I am taking notes, the notes involve diagrams. Markdown is great at text, but has nothing for diagrams.
After a lot of thinking about this problem, I've decided to start using an iPad with an Apple Pencil and Microsoft OneNote. Here is an example of some notes I took when thinking about an AudioUnit plugin that would dilate time:
VimWiki is definitely very cool. Just sharing this in case anyone out there has the same concern as me about drawing diagrams.
That said, I rarely draw pictures and defer diagraming to my co workers, so vimwiki will fill a purpose for me.
It was a ruby rogues pick a while back, you might like it!
