Logseq is one of the best personal knowledge management and note-taking apps that you can use to organize your notes and learn better. Some of the features of Logseq include backlinks, block reference and block embeds, task management, daily notes, and plugin support. In this article, we are going to focus on the Logseq plugins. Plugins are what you can use to add extra features to Logseq. I love the plugin approach as it keeps the base app experience clean and easy while allowing power users to add the features they need. Here are the best Logseq plugins you can use to enhance your note-taking experience.
Best Logseq plugins you should use
In my Logseq Review, I mentioned that I am using the app exclusively to manage all my notes. Plugins play a big role as they have allowed me to use the app without running into any restrictions. I hope you will find these plugins as useful as I find them every day. But before we get into our list, let’s see how you can install plugins in Logseq.
How to install plugins in Logseq
To install plugins in Logseq, you will have to first enable the feature in Logseq’s Settings and then use the plugin directory to install them. Also, note that plugins are currently only supported on the desktop apps, so you won’t be able to use them on your mobile or tablet. Finally, since these plugins are generally developed by the community, they come with a disclaimer.
Plugins can access your graph and your local files, issue network requests. They can also cause data corruption or loss. We’re working on proper access rules for your graphs. Meanwhile, make sure you have regular backups of your graphs and only install the plugins when you can read and understand the source code.
So, ensure that you are backing up your graph and use these plugins only if you are comfortable with them. That said, I have been using these plugins for well over a year, and I have not come across any issues. With the disclaimer out of the way, here’s the step-by-step guide you can follow:
- Launch Logseq on your computer and click on the three-dot menu in the top-right. Now, click on the Settings button to open settings.
