Weekend Project: Roam → Anki Sync

Over the last weekend, I hacked together a small NodeJs(!) library that does an automatic anki -> roam sync. Github

Learning points:

  • Building stuff in the Node was super productive due to the great ecosystem.
  • Versus Go’s simple API to invoke async functions, callbacks/promises in JS are still rather unwieldy.
  • I miss the expressiveness of functional programming constructs like map, reduce, filter in Go.
