[Problem] -- We have proprietary apps, like Workflowy (.com), or
(.io), that sell lists/trees management with great features (like subtexts,
highlighting, etc.) with good amounts of freemium, but no true
of privacy, and having data on a 3rd party's cloud. There are also
apps for tree editing, like Calculist (.io), which unfortunately, are not
easy to use.
[Idea] -- list management is not so different from source code
and there exists open source editors, such as VSCode (Visual Studio
Code), that support plugins and in-between-the-lines notes. So, with
investment to open source, we could have an open source plugin
replicating those features, and enabling the use for private lists/trees
Notes: could export/import with YAML-like format, OPML format, etc.
GitHub -- created a generic issue, that would help later implement this more easily.

||I've not come across "list management" as a discrete
thing before - however, I do think there's a huge
opportunity in using tools like Git for non-binary
document management generally. Whether you're
writing technical manuals, short stories, lists,
markup documents, articles, code, whatever - if there's a
potential for edits and re-writes - especially
across a team - then Git is the way forward. You can
see changes, who made them, when and what their
motivation was - as well as keeping a full history
so you can revert to an earlier version. Who'd do
||From the idea title, I was half-expecting this to be a
reinvention of Lisp.
||// Who'd do anything otherwise? //
||Insufficiently technical people, who will almost certainly
continue to exist (both unfortunately and fortunately).
||// I do think there's a huge opportunity in using tools like Git for non-binary

||[zen_tom], I totally agree here, and that's the "why" part of the idea.
