Roam Tools

May 17, 2020 • #

The roamcult has been on a streak of creating tools to extend and improve Roam Research. Here are a few that I’ve been using lately.

Better Roam Research

This one is a simple Chrome extension that reskins Roam with a minimalist design. It doesn’t change much about the utilitarian interface, just some simple spacing and colors (plus Dark Mode support).


A simple Chrome extension for clipping quotes into your Roam database. It takes the snippet and source URL and formats them into a nice block to link into your notes.

Roam Toolkit

A toolbox of useful utilities to make Roam better — FuzzyDate is a quicker way to enter date links, spaced repetition tools for memory, custom CSS, custom shortcuts.

Roam Codes

This isn’t really a tool, but this documentation page shows the extensive set of special codes and objects you can use in Roam markup.
