Core Concepts

with Ethereum

Sign-In with Ethereum is a new form of authentication that enables users to control their digital identity with their Ethereum account and ENS profile instead of relying on a traditional intermediary. You will need an Ethereum account to use Dunlin.

Bidirectional links

Dunlin uses bidirectional links to help you organize your notes into a knowledge graph. You can link a note to other notes, and each note displays the notes that link to it (its "backlinks"). When you create bidirectional links, you are making two notes aware of each other and start to build connections between ideas in your workspace.

Graph visualization

When you compile notes and link them together, they form a graph of interconnected ideas. Dunlin's graph visualization is a bird's eye view of your knowledge base and can help you identify connections and patterns in your graph.

Sharing a workspace

You can join forces with a friend or community by sharing your workspace with them. To set up the access conditions, click the "Share workspace" button in the top toolbar. Among other options, you can grant access to an individual wallet, members of a certain DAO, or holders of a specific NFT. To accept an invitation to another workspace, click on "Join" in the dropdown menu from the top of the sidebar and enter the unique ID of the workspace you want to join.

IPFS publishing

If you would like to share your notes for wider consumption, Dunlin lets you publish to the public, distributed, censorship-resistant IPFS network.

Note editing permissions

By default, a Dunlin workspace allows any of its members to edit all notes freely. The workspace owner can configure the workspace settings to only allow a note's original author to edit it.
