  • Setting Up Obsidian for Content Planning and Project Management
    3 projects | dev.to | 11 Mar 2024
    Obsidian has a large collection of community-contributed plugins to serve various user needs. For this guide, we'll install Templater and Tasks, two plugins that can be really powerful when combined to create notes and task lists.
  • Publishing to my blog from Obsidian

    I use the Templater plugin mostly for my newsletter and some other miscellaneous things not relevant here. I ended up making a "blog template" that I can use to quickly add the frontmatter I need!

    That said: - I assume you will be doing at least some highlighting / annotating of pdfs and / or websites. In that case, you might want to look into either plugins that automatically import your highlights from other tools (Zotero, Kindle or another e-ink device, Hypothes.is, Readwise, etc), or into plugins that allow for highlighting PDFs directly inside Obsidian (Obsidian Annotator). - Templater is useful for most folks that have to create many notes with repeated layout. If you have notes for each lesson, you could have a lesson note template, to create them faster and keep them consistent. - As a student, you have to keep track of your schedule when it comes to classes, exams, etc. - you could use a plugin to sync your existing Google calendar, or keep your calendar entirely in Obsidian (Full Calendar).

    Don't worry if you're template isn't perfect. It can always be modified. I modified a template this morning that I created eight months ago. It needed a little tweak. Documentation: https://github.com/SilentVoid13/Templater

    I totally understand the learning curve. I was there too, for sure. The syntax you've pointed out are both part of the Templater extension. It's a fantastic extension and well worth the effort in learning, by the way. I'd recommend looking at the guide the author provided for the extension (https://silentvoid13.github.io/Templater/).
  • Is the Templater plugin abandoned?

    I spent another couple hours writing an elaborate script that creates new notes based on a set of conditions, but that also turned out to be a waste of time due to another documented bug with Templater itself.
