It's been amazing 2 months since I tried quick-slim branch and I've decided to share my feedback with y'all
For many, performance boost in this branch might seem minor thing, but for me personally, it made me truly appreciate so much more of Joplin.
Particularly, I was able to install and use a lot more of our great plugins. With little incremental impact on performance that felt quite liberating!
Since it got snappier, I noticed that I naturally spend more engaged time with Joplin: writing more detailed notes, organising notebook tree, saving and extending documentation. It very nearly became my go-to application for anything of substance. In this mindset, like many other members of our community, I even started to write little scripts and snippets helping me achieving my goals.
In social aspect, this improvement made me sure that I can recommend Joplin to older folks who often have quite outdated hardware and at the same time, are easily put off by minor inconvenience.
In conclusion, I want express my gratitude to all contributors: you're truly making my life and lives of my loved ones, easier and better. Thank you
Since changes in quick-slim branch involved switching between notes, notebooks and reducing rendered updates, I've been attempting to force it to get stuck on previously rendered note.
How: deleting notebook with currently focused note, transition from empty notebook, deleting tags, deleting last note in a tag list, using go-to, using favourites plugin, resolving conflicts, using internal links with
# ancors and external links
Result: all passed
I've stumbled upon some flaky weirdness with notelist focus shortcut, but couldn't either localise or attribute it to the specific Joplin version.
