    > Not really. Obsidian has its shares of problems too, and most of them originate from using Markdown.

    Aha. Which problems do you mean?

    > Markdown is a freeform text-format, and works very well for writing text, but it really sucks for data and structured content.

    Joplin is using md to. And if Joplin does a good job on "data" and "structured content" (whatever you mean by that) by separating that in their DB, it's a big NO for me since it's a closed silo.

    This: works so wonderful for me, and it never breaks anything in my simple md files.

    > Most plugins and features in that area are very brittle and overspecialized, working only well enough in their specific use case.

    Aha. I don't think so. Which authority says that? And even if It's like that, my markdown files would survive everything, since they are a) in git. and b) easy to fix since it's a text file. Gosh!

    > And gosh, Obsidian has really a huge amount of plugins for data-handling.

    And gosh, this is a good thing!

    > At some point, it was so bad that there were multiple competing task-plugins which broke each other just because they had different formatting for dates.

    Installing multiple task plugins shows that something is "broke" on the user side. It's not the fault of Markdown or Obsidian.

    Just have a look on: but you dont need a fancy task plugin like this, if you know your way around or

    My perfect bookmark manager is Markdownload

    Just save the complete page, only selected text or only the link to a markdown file or Obsidian. With downloaded, linked or without pictures. My OS and Obsidian can search those files, they have more (automatically added) metadata.

    I can even edit them in the browser: add your thoughts, tags or change the name of the file before they are saved.

    I can (automatically) do with them what ever I need. They can be used to (automatically) generate an always up to date start page or a data vault on GitHub.

    My local AI assistant can parse them.

    Local, versatile, permanent, flexible, cost effective, future save. No need for a bookmark manager.

    Yes and no.

    Instead of PDF, use Markdownload (on iOS, use a Safari web content to markdown file extension):

    And save in a journaled folder like "YYYY-MM-DD - Page" with a YAML frontmatter of all available metadata.

    Have this as a folder in your PKM of choice (Obsidian, Foam, whatever).

    These days, point some text embedding at it, and let it generate your own LLM brain.

    But you can also static-site-generate that back into your own web knowledge site or base.
