  • How to improve your GitHub vanity metrics FAST
    2 projects | dev.to | 29 Jan 2024
    In practice I write in Obsidian, the best thing since slice bread for me. And it was obsidian-git, running every 10 minutes or so, who was keeping my GitHub vanity metrics very green.

    The way it's handled can make the difference in control.

    > by separating that in their DB, it's a big NO for me since it's a closed silo.

    Joplin is using a popular open database with a healthy community and good tooling. It's as open as markdown. Maybe not for you, when you lack the knowledge, but markdown is similar closed for anyone not understanding filesystems and editors.

    > This: https://github.com/blacksmithgu/obsidian-dataview works so wonderful for me

    Good for you, but that is very low level in terms of data-handling. Dataview is really just an elaborated search, there is no good level of interaction. Datacore, the next project of the Dataview is supposed to bring this, but it's not even usable yet AFAIK. Coincidental, the Obsidian-devs are also working on that front, but nothing is finished yet.

    > https://github.com/denolehov/obsidian-git and b) easy to fix since it's a text file. Gosh!

    That's useless when the app itself is not working. And even worse if you are not realizing the errors early.

    > Aha. I don't think so. Which authority says that?

    My own experience. I've tested enough plugins over the years to know their dark corners.

    > And even if It's like that, my markdown files would survive everything

    The thing is, technically you are not even having proper markdown, but a fork with some extensions of Obsidian. So some features of your parts might break when switching away from Obsidian. And the reason for all this is also because markdown is lacking definitions for what obsidian-people are doing with it. Coincidentally, this seems also one of the reasons why Joplin is using a database.

    > And gosh, this is a good thing!

    Not if they all suck.

    > Installing multiple task plugins shows that something is "broke" on the user side.

    Sure, because the plugins are lacking features, its the users fault... Maybe some users have just very different levels of requirements from you.

    The Obsidian team uses the "remote vault" feature[1] to collaborate on making Obsidian. Since Obsidian runs on local files you could use any shared file storage like Dropbox. If you want more granular version history, you can use Git, there's a nice plugin for it[2].

  • Show HN: Open-source obsidian.md sync server

    I've been using the main Obsidian git extension, https://github.com/denolehov/obsidian-git. Took some work to set it up ergnonomically but it works great now. I enabled auto-commit and push on save, and auto-pull when you start the editor. No merge conflicts yet between two machines.

    Should note I use Obsidian for a journal, so it's pretty much append-only.

  • A Side Effect of Storing a Git Repository in iCloud Drive

    I use Obsidian to create notes as Markdown files on my computer and use the Obsidian Git plugin to version control the changes via Git. The Obsidian vault in which I store my notes is stored in a folder synced using iCloud Drive.
  • Syncthing is causing battery drain. Any free alternatives?

    Up to my knowledge, Obsidian GIT doesn't support merge on mobile. There is a different approach for handling those on mobile using Command Line, you can find more info in this post and this article.
