Discussion on: A Personal Git Repo as a Knowledge Base Wiki

Like it. What's your process of adding images to the pages? Is it: take a picture with a smartphone → icloud/dropbox sync to computer → move the file to the repo → add an image in markdown?
I'm yet to find a perfect solution for a personal knowledge base. I like to add diagrams next to the text (often a doodle is worth a hundred words) and I want the process to be as easy as possible. I found Notability app to serve best my needs. Using it on my iPad and computer. Also tried OneNote, GoodNotes and (Apple) Notes but they didn't click with me.

Thank you! Yes, that's basically the process for adding images - I've only had to do that with one or two hand-drawn ones so far, for screenshots it's of course even simpler than that.
When I was first introduced to Apple Notes, I got into using it but getting the information out was ridiculous - I ended up connecting it to my Google account and so the notes now live in a Gmail folder as though they're emails. I've started the process of copying/reformatting the info to live in this repo, where it'll be a bit more useful!
