Discussion on: Using Markdown for Notes

Yaml front matter is something that is used by my static site generator. I've actually just created another snippet to quickly insert checkboxes. I don't know that Yaml front matter is a standard piece of markdown but it can be helpful. I usually just organize my markdown with headers. The outline pane in VSCode let's me see those headers nested like a table of contents, and the edotr will let me fold everything from a header until the next header that isn't a larger number than that one (i.e. Folding an h2 will fold everything between it and the next h2 or h1) .
