Great idea. I'll give it a try.
I've been attempting to use Microsoft's OneNote to organize thoughts and files. It is the only Microsoft product that I like. Been working with it about 9 months. I use it online via Linux Chrome browser and from my Android phone. However, its search capabilities are nil or non-existent. I'm ready to try the next idea.
Hey David, thanks for your feedback!
I'm not a big fan of Microsoft's products and the only one I use is VSCode because I really like it. In sum, I'm not the best person to comment your experience with OneNote.
However, regarding Git/Github, I can assure you that your search needs will probably be fulfilled because Github itself provides a very decent file searching feature on repositories and also, depending on your OS (which I assume to be Windows version X), you'll also have the advantage of whatever search capabilities it provides for files (in Linux it's really good).
Hope Github is a good choice for your workflow and that it fixes the headaches you've been going through.
