Manage notes (not folders) as a collapsible nested list in the File Explorer

Related to Zettelksaten: if you want to follow the Folgezettel ID system, you may find helpful the ability to manage notes in the sidebar as a nested list without using Folders structure. This would allow you to expand or collapse sections and sub-sections in order to improve the way to view and work with the different branches. Similar to the way that Workflowy or Dynalist works

It is not about a list within the note but about managing notes as a nested list

That would be great, I’d much prefer navigating a collapsible structure to finding my way on this ever-changing graph view.

What I like most about this system of naming notes is that I can easily browse it while writing

@berzhot, I have tons of notes listed in the sidebar. What would it take to turn them into a collapsible nested list in the File Explorer, like what you’ve shown here?

I don’t know. Is just an idea to share in order to see if any developer thinks that it is something that worths to be developed or not.

I love this idea, because it’s exactly what I’m looking for to implement Luhmans Folgezettel idea.

Unfortunately my programming skills aren’t good enough to write an extension.

Agree! Look at this.
