Behind the scenes

Intrigue is heavily inspired by Victor Margolin's method of organizing research literature and writing, which makes use of note cards and literature canvases. Here's a video of him explaining the process.

Next steps

Next steps includes better integration with Zotero, Overleaf, etc. through BibTeX, as well as a drawer to collect and organize all the literature you've ever put in the canvas and the notes you've snapped/connected to them.
