Roam Research (aka Roam) is a silo that functions as a personal wiki, to do list, digital notebook, or commonplace book. It can either be public or private and thus could be used as the basis for a website, though there isn't a way to map a personal domain name onto the service.
Among many common website features, Roam has the ability to:
- tag or categorize content
- provide backlinks (or bi-directional links) between pieces of content
- provides a mind map view of links between pieces of content
Foam is an open source tool "inspired by Roam Research" built on Visual Studio Code (used to edit the content) and GitHub - including the possibility to publish the content to GitHub pages.
