I am checking out Piggydb, which is a tool for building personal knowledgebases. Rather than installing their standalone package that uses Java, I went to Docker Hub and found a container that hosts the server based version that I've been running in Docker Toolbox for Windows. What I find interesting about Piggydb is how you can relate notes to each other. My guess is that there is relational database running in the background keeping track of all the relationships. Right now I am only running Piggydb on my laptop, I would need to move it to a server if I were to commit to it.#
