Plugin News

New in Community Plugins

These plugins went through code review and are now available in Obsidian's plugin list. For the full list, check out the plugin stats page.

  • Short links by @scottwillmoore will shorten internal links, for example turning Foo # Bar into just # Bar in the case of heading links.

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.

Note: these plugins have not yet been submitted for code review, and are being made available primarily for testing purposes.

  • Weaver is designed to seamlessly incorporate ChatGPT/GPT-3 into your note-taking process, allowing users to access AI-powered suggestions and insights.
  • Text Generator Plugin Version 0.3.4-beta has Dataview integration; for example you can now get personalized book recommendations based on your reading history and preferences by querying your book notes with Dataview.


Ancillary Code

  • Here's a Ruby script that uses an OpenAI API key and will watch a folder for large text files, summarize them using GPT-4, and save them to Obsidian in markdown format.



Note: There are a couple of affiliate links & codes scattered around, but these always come from links I was already recommending and usually I share them because they benefit you too (i.e. getting you extra time on trials).
