In that case, you might like Zim. It's a desktop wiki tool, that writes flat text files in folders (if you use note nesting), using markdown (plus buttons for formatting if you prefer). You can configure it to default new notes to include date, and I think a calandar selector is used for something, but I've only used it for cross-referenced things, such as cookbooks or loading TTRPGs/settings together. - Source: Reddit / 10 days ago
I've just checked my desktop and (beside a ton of terminals), I have : - Zim (GTK widgets note taking app): https://zim-wiki.org/. - Source: Hacker News / 29 days ago
I don’t want my dev notes in the cloud, so I use Zim Wiki. Has git integration and markdown supports as well as dozens of plugins for other kinds of markup (graphs, flowcharts, etc). Also decent attachments support and the ability to export HTML for documentation. Also has sufficient GTD support. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
You could try Zim wiki. It might not be exactly what you want, but it's fairly close, I think. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
OneDrive + https://zim-wiki.org/ = a personal desktop wiki I can create a record for each NPC, notes, and use a simple but effective tagging system for the search function. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
Will definitely compare it to Joplin (which isn't exactly apples to apples). - Source: Reddit / about 13 hours ago

I wish I could sit here and tell you that I write everything in a journal because pen and paper feel old-school dungeon master cool. But I can't say that. I keep everything on a computer program. There are a million computer programs for doing this job, but I find simple works best for this. I use a free program called Joplin. I have it on my computer and my phone and they sync up very well together. - Source: Reddit / 9 days ago

I didn't see it so I'm recommending it. https://joplinapp.org/ Use this with the encryption, sync to local filesystem, and with syncthing or similar and you can have an entire "second brain" tree of knowledge written in markdown. On your phone, on your laptop, pc at work, etc.... All for free because devs. - Source: Hacker News / 16 days ago
