4. Configuration

To use deft, you first need to specify the directory in which your notes are stored:

;; add to $DOOMDIR/config.el
(setq deft-directory "~/notes")

The default note format is org-mode. You can change this by setting the value of the variable deft-default-extension. Replacing the value with "md", for example, will change the default note format to markdown:

(setq deft-default-extension "md")

You may also want to alter the way titles and file names are automatically created by editing deft-use-filename-as-title and/or deft-use-filter-string-for-filename.

Further customization options can be found in the project’s documentation.
