Obsidian set up for newbies

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/ObsidianMD

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • talent.io - Download talent.io’s Tech Salary Report
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.

  • obsidian-excalidraw-plugin

    A plugin to edit and view Excalidraw drawings in Obsidian

  • MathJax

    Beautiful and accessible math in all browsers

    For math and programming, core plugin-free Obsidian should do fine. For math notes, it has built-in support for mathjax. For programming notes, it displays embedded code nicely via code blocks.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • mermaid

    Generation of diagram and flowchart from text in a similar manner as markdown

    noteapps already covered Excalidraw plugin, which is probably the only "mandatory" one for what you've outlined. (Mandatory in quotes because Obsidian does include a version of mermaid.js which I believe can do drawing etc, but excalidraw's so much more convenient.)

  • MathWiki

    An Obsidian.md vault for my math course notes in university

    Few days ago someone asked about math note taking and this vault was linked.
