Org-roam is a Roam replica built on top of the
all-powerful Org-mode.

Org-roam is a solution for effortless non-hierarchical note-taking
with Org-mode. With Org-roam, notes flow naturally, making note-taking
fun and easy. Org-roam should also work as a plug-and-play solution
for anyone already using Org-mode for their personal wiki.

Org-roam aims to implement the core features of Roam, leveraging the
mature ecosystem around Org-mode where possible. Eventually, we hope
to further introduce features enabled by the Emacs ecosystem.

@technovangelist has produced a video
describing Org-roam and the concepts behind it:

As of February 2020, it is in a very early stage of development.

A Preview

Here’s a screenshot of org-roam. The org-roam buffer shows
backlinks for the active org buffer in the left window, as well as the
surrounding content in the backlink file. The database is built once,
and updated incrementally. The graph is generated from the link
structure, and can be used to navigate to the respective files.


You can install org-roam using package.el:

M-x package-install RET org-roam RET

Here’s a sample configuration with using use-package:

(use-package org-roam
      (after-init . org-roam-mode)
      (org-roam-directory "/path/to/org-files/")
      :bind (:map org-roam-mode-map
              (("C-c n l" . org-roam)
               ("C-c n f" . org-roam-find-file)
               ("C-c n g" . org-roam-show-graph))
              :map org-mode-map
              (("C-c n i" . org-roam-insert))))
