I write stories & articles inspired by all eras of history & science... so I wind up putting notetaking software like Obsidian & Readwise thru their paces.

Obsidian Updates

  • 1.1.15 brings many Canvas improvements and bugfixes out of Insider and to everyone 🥳
  • The new default theme for Publish, and Publish theming updates, are very nice. I look forward to updating my digital garden soon! Was going to do it this week (I'm very excited about this update) but my kid missed 3 days of daycare this week thanks to the holiday and a fever, so I didn't have a chance. If anyone made theming changes recently and wants to share their Obsidian Publish digital garden, please reach out :)

Plugin News

Pending (as of Friday morning)

Note: Not all new plugins are available in the community list yet, as they need to go through code review first. You can manually install plugins that aren't in the community list yet by using the Beta Reviewer's Auto-update Tool. Note, though, that this is not as safe as waiting for them to go through code review.

  • Heading Level Indent by @svonjoi  facilitates indenting content under headers based on their level
  • Open files with commands by @LostPaul  create commands that only open one file at the time and that can be used with the commander plugin.
  • LaTeX Algorithms by @SamZhang02  facilitates writing algorithm blocks in LaTeX
  • Rofi Helper Plugin by @digitalsignalperson  adds a leaf id parameter to the URI protocol for switching between open obsidian tabs with Rofi. A sample Rofi script is included.
  • Open In New Tab by @patleeman  opens files in new tabs and makes open tabs active instead of opening a copy.
  • Awesome Reader by @AwesomeDog makes it easier to create a book note from a table of contents and read PDFs and epubs in Obsidian.
  • Feeds Reader by @fjdu  is another option for reading RSS feeds within Obsidian.
  • O2 by @songkg7  makes obsidian markdown syntax compatible with Jekyll.
  • No Empty Windows by @popscallion  closes Obsidian window with cmd+W on Mac when the last tab is closed.
  • Tasks Calendar Wrapper by @Leonezz  is a simple wrapper for Obsidian-Tasks-Calendar and Obsidian-Tasks-Timeline.
  • Fantasy Content Generator by @Gregory-Jagermeister  helps the generation of fantasy content like inn, settlements and names for characters based on races, useful for fantasy authors & TTRPG fans.
