- To contribute to the Agora, you need to write down notes or posts in one of the supported formats and upload your notes to a git repository of your choice. These steps are expanded below.
In a nutshell: you need to host your notes (more generally, resources, defaulting to markdown plus wikilinks), somewhere online. And then let the agora know about it.
- The Agora doesn't host your data, but rather pulls it from a location you control and renders it for you and other users; in the process interlinking your data with that of other users.
- Most users currently host git repositories on https://github.com or https://gitlab.com.
- Note using the default format (Markdown) lets you also easily publish your blog or digital garden independently online with tools such as jekyll, gatsby or nikola.
As of 2021-05-07, the recommended Agora editor is:
- foam, if you want open source hosted locally.
- logseq, if you want open source, value the convenience of a hosted setup, and use chrome or a chromium based browser (any browser but firefox, essentially).
obsidian if you don't mind using closed software from a small ethical company, in particular a small one with a vibrant open source extension community.
- You need at least also the obsidian git plugin. See obsidian plugins for more.
- install obsidian by visiting https://obsidian.md and then follow vault backup to set up backup to git: https://docs.github.com/en/github/importing-your-projects-to-github/adding-an-existing-project-to-github-using-the-command-line .
- Then follow the procedure below to add your vault or digital garden to the agora.
- You can also use:
After getting yourself a repository, you need to let an agora know about it so it can be pulled and integrated.
- Please send a pr adding your garden to gardens yaml, accepting the agora's contract and indicating your desired username; or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, flancian or vera with information about your use case. We'll do our best to make it work! We want the agora to be maximally inclusive.
All agora users must agree to its contract as defined by the system account.
- The contracts of other users can optionally be a endorsed.
- My proposal to you now is that we use the capability of sharing and discovering context-relevant media at effectively zero cost for the greater good: let's agree on a protocol to escape vendor lock-in and cooperate optimally on projects of public utility.

- To read the Agora, you don't need anything but a web browser.
To contribute to the Agora, first you need to publish your digital garden or content elsewhere online. The Agora doesn't host your data, but rather pulls it from a location you control and renders it for you and other users; it interlinks it with that of other users.
- If you know your way around git, markdown on git is the default format. If you use roam or a roam like or you have a notes database, you're almost there.
Whatever participation mechanism you choose, you need to let an Agora maintainer know where your content is, so it can be pulled and integrated. We strive to continuously support new sources and formats.
You can send email to email@example.com or reach out to a member of flancia collective with:
- The URL of your repo or content.
- Your desired username.
- Confirmation that you agree to the Agora's contract (only the one by the @agora user; other contracts are optional).
- Alternatively if you know your way around git you can send a PR for
gardens.yamlin the Agora repo: go/agora.
- You can send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to a member of flancia collective with:
- The Agora wants to be maximally inclusive, but it is in its infancy; it is a work in progress. If you want to participate and can't, please also send email to email@example.com to let us know.
- Please refer to agora install in case you want to run your own Agora; and to agora editor for more information on clients.
