Obsidian (A second brain, for you, forever.)

Program: Obsidian

License: Free Personal • Proprietary

Description: Powerful knowledge base that works on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files.

Website: https://obsidian.md/

Feature

  • #Tags
  • $$LaTeX math$$
  • [^Footnotes]
  • [[Internal links]]
  • ![[Filename]] to embed notes and other files
  • backlinks and graph view
  • Command palette
  • Open in default app
  • Plugins
  • etc

Other: Obsidian is 100% free for personal and educational use. You don't even need an account to use it. In Obsidian, making and following [[connections]] is frictionless. Tend to your notes like a gardener; at the end of the day, sit back and marvel at your own knowledge graph. Note-taking is incredibly personal.

Obsidian is built to be extensible. With 22 core plugins and 237 community plugins, set up your own toolkit and get running in minutes. In our age when cloud services can shut down, get bought, or change privacy policy any day, the last thing you want is proprietary formats and data lock-in.

With Obsidian, your data sits in a local folder. Never leave your life's work held hostage in the cloud again. Plain text Markdown also gives you the unparalleled interoperability to use any kind of sync, encryption, or data processing that works with plain text files.

Great Program, Would Be Useful to Have in a Portable Mode

Obsidian is really great and currently the de facto application for this.
It would be highly useful to have it in the suite.

Obsidian Launcher

Hi, I came across this simple batch file, on Obidian community (nice, sharing chap, I'll go back and thank, now I've tried it), it creates a directory system, local to the Obsidian.exe, wherever you put it - plus all else, as installed in ~/Appdata/Local/ point at 'your' vault - copied, including plugins, etc., or new...
