## Software for organizing information

### Associative

* [Foam](  A Roam Research clone as a Visual Studio Code extension.
* [Roam](  “As powerful as a graph database.”  SaaS.
* [Org-mode](  “Rudimentary Roam replica with Org-mode.”

### Spatial

* [Nototo](

### Tag-based

* Boorus.  Oriented towards media, not text.  There are many.  Every booru I have seen identifies files by their checksum, usually MD5.  It may be better instead to identify them by a [perceptual hash](
* [Hydrus](  A cross-platform desktop booru with optional server-based collaboration.  Stores tags in a database.
* [Tabbles](  A desktop and Web-based document manager with optional server-based collaboration.  Windows-only.  Allows chat-like comments on files.  Stores tags in a database.  Proprietary.
* [TagSpaces](  A cross-platform desktop document manager.  Stores tags in filenames or [sidecar files](
* [TMSU](  A cross-platform command line tool for tagging files.  Can expose a virtual filesystem for accessing files by tag.  Stores tags in a database.
* [AlternativeTo: Apps tagged with 'tag-based-file-management'](
