The shortest path to understanding Brimm is to understand its primary motivation: to combine Notion’s database and document editing experience with the structural flexibility of infinite outliners (apps like Workflowy or Logseq).
Brimm lets you model data as blocks of many shapes (text, tasks, bookmarks, personal info, events, books, music albums, contact info, etc.), categorise and organise it, make connections, and search across it. You can mark a block as todo anywhere, then create a table listing all todos due today, whether from your entire database or a single project. You can list all paragraphs in need of revision from a blog post you’re writing. Or create a gallery of your favourite grunge albums.
Brimm is a full-stack web app, with the backend under the user’s control. Unlike Notion, you own your data. Brimm will be open source across the stack.
The broader vision for Brimm is to provide you with a capable personal/team graph database with a default UI. While the default interface covers many use cases, you should be able to work with your data through other interfaces/applications.
