Obsidian integration

The main purpose of this fork, other than cosmetic changes, is to create a web representation of an Obsidian vault, using the Simply-Jekyll template.

Usage

Things to know :

  • Markdown is fully-compatible (including Latex delimiters !)

  • There are now only notes (no blog posts). If you really want blog posts along notes, a hack is to set the YAML season of blog posts to summer and notes to automn - they won't appear in feed but will be searchable and appear in tags page.

  • Code is now correctly indented

  • You can change the code template by replacing the css in /assets/css/highlight.css by any template from pygment.css

  • Wikilinks are usable : [​[​…]],

  • Also alt-text wikilinks (with transclusion !) : [​[​original link\|alternative text]]

Please note : You need to escape the pipe character in Obsidian (\| instead of |). This won't break Obsidian's functionality.

  • Fresh new feature : you can also link headers ! Use # when typing the wikilink : [​[Obsidian integration#Obsidian setup|Alt-text]] will create the following link : Alt-textObsidian integration

Please note : This feature will work only if you write alternative text in the link : [[Obsidian integration#Obsidian setup]] won't work1.

  • You can use Simply-Jekyll custom features, such as flashcards : Carte mémoire !

Obsidian setup

Installation

After having forked notenote.link on your computer, open Obsidian and create a vault in the root folder (/notenote.link).

This will allow you to modify all your markdown files inside the directory.

about.md is in the root folder.

Your notes should go to the _notes folder, images in assets/img. You need to tell Obsidian where to put the new notes. In Preferences/File, enter the following settings :

  • Default location for new notes : In the folder specified below`
  • Folder to create new notes in : _notes
  • New link format : Relative Path to file
  • Attachment folder path : `assets/img

Frontmatter

Front matter is needed at the beginning of your note. Here is the template :

---
title: My Note
tags: tag1
toc: true
season: winter
---

You can hide it in Obsidian by toggling the option "Show Frontmatter" in the Preferences/Editor menu.

Images

Images are the tricky part :

  • You can use vanilla markdown links: ![](/asset/img/img.png)
  • You can drag/drop/paste images in Obsidian, which will create a link such as : [​[​../assets/img/Pasted image.png]]

A quick hack in the last case is just to change the brackets : ![](../assets/img/Pasted image.png)

  1. I don't use it, so I didn't change it but if it's important for you open an issue and I may fix it.
