A Neovim plugin for writing and navigating Obsidian vaults, written in Lua.

Built for people who love the concept of Obsidian -- a simple, markdown-based notes app -- but love Neovim too much to stand typing characters into anything else.

If you're new to Obsidian I highly recommend watching this excellent YouTube video for a great overview.

Keep in mind this plugin is not meant to replace Obsidian, but to complement it. The Obsidian app is very powerful in its own way; it comes with a mobile app and has a lot of functionality that's not feasible to implement in Neovim, such as the graph explorer view. That said, this plugin stands on its own as well. You don't necessarily need to use it alongside the Obsidian app.

Features

▶️ Completion: Ultra-fast, asynchronous autocompletion for note references and tags via nvim-cmp (triggered by typing [[ for wiki links, [ for markdown links, or # for tags), powered by ripgrep.

See this screenshot

🏃 Navigation: Navigate throughout your vault by typing gf on any link to another note.

📷 Images: Paste images into notes.

💅 Syntax: Additional markdown syntax highlighting, concealing, and extmarks for references, tags, and check-boxes.

Commands

  • :ObsidianOpen [QUERY] to open a note in the Obsidian app. This command has one optional argument: a query used to resolve the note to open by ID, path, or alias. If not given, the note corresponding to the current buffer is opened.

  • :ObsidianNew [TITLE] to create a new note. This command has one optional argument: the title of the new note.

  • :ObsidianQuickSwitch to quickly switch to (or open) another note in your vault, searching by its name using ripgrep with your preferred picker (see plugin dependencies below).

  • :ObsidianFollowLink [vsplit|hsplit] to follow a note reference under the cursor, optionally opening it in a vertical or horizontal split.

  • :ObsidianBacklinks for getting a picker list of references to the current buffer.

  • :ObsidianTags [TAG ...] for getting a picker list of all occurrences of the given tags.

  • :ObsidianToday [OFFSET] to open/create a new daily note. This command also takes an optional offset in days, e.g. use :ObsidianToday -1 to go to yesterday's note. Unlike :ObsidianYesterday and :ObsidianTomorrow this command does not differentiate between weekdays and weekends.

  • :ObsidianYesterday to open/create the daily note for the previous working day.

  • :ObsidianTomorrow to open/create the daily note for the next working day.

  • :ObsidianDailies [OFFSET ...] to open a picker list of daily notes. For example, :ObsidianDailies -2 1 to list daily notes from 2 days ago until tomorrow.

  • :ObsidianTemplate [NAME] to insert a template from the templates folder, selecting from a list using your preferred picker. See "using templates" for more information.

  • :ObsidianSearch [QUERY] to search for (or create) notes in your vault using ripgrep with your preferred picker.

  • :ObsidianLink [QUERY] to link an inline visual selection of text to a note. This command has one optional argument: a query that will be used to resolve the note by ID, path, or alias. If not given, the selected text will be used as the query.

  • :ObsidianLinkNew [TITLE] to create a new note and link it to an inline visual selection of text. This command has one optional argument: the title of the new note. If not given, the selected text will be used as the title.

  • :ObsidianLinks to collect all links within the current buffer into a picker window.

  • :ObsidianExtractNote [TITLE] to extract the visually selected text into a new note and link to it.

  • :ObsidianWorkspace [NAME] to switch to another workspace.

  • :ObsidianPasteImg [IMGNAME] to paste an image from the clipboard into the note at the cursor position by saving it to the vault and adding a markdown image link. You can configure the default folder to save images to with the attachments.img_folder option.

  • :ObsidianRename [NEWNAME] [--dry-run] to rename the note of the current buffer or reference under the cursor, updating all backlinks across the vault. Since this command is still relatively new and could potentially write a lot of changes to your vault, I highly recommend committing the current state of your vault (if you're using version control) before running it, or doing a dry-run first by appending "--dry-run" to the command, e.g. :ObsidianRename new-id --dry-run.

  • :ObsidianToggleCheckbox to cycle through checkbox options.

Setup

System requirements

  • NeoVim >= 0.8.0 (this plugin uses vim.fs which was only added in 0.8).
  • If you want completion and search features (recommended) you'll need ripgrep to be installed and on your $PATH. See ripgrep#installation for install options.

Specific operating systems also require additional dependencies in order to use all of obsidian.nvim's functionality:

  • Windows WSL users need wsl-open for the :ObsidianOpen command.
  • MacOS users need pngpaste (brew install pngpaste) for the :ObsidianPasteImg command.
  • Linux users need xclip (X11) or wl-clipboard (Wayland) for the :ObsidianPasteImg command.

Search functionality (e.g. via the :ObsidianSearch and :ObsidianQuickSwitch commands) also requires a picker such telescope.nvim (see plugin dependencies below).

Install and configure

To configure obsidian.nvim you just need to call require("obsidian").setup({ ... }) with the desired options. Here are some examples using different plugin managers. The full set of plugin dependencies and configuration options are listed below.

⚠️ WARNING: if you install from the latest release (recommended for stability) instead of main, be aware that the README on main may reference features that haven't been released yet. For that reason I recommend viewing the README on the tag for the latest release instead of main.

Using lazy.nvim

return {
  "epwalsh/obsidian.nvim",
  version = "*",  -- recommended, use latest release instead of latest commit
  lazy = true,
  ft = "markdown",
  -- Replace the above line with this if you only want to load obsidian.nvim for markdown files in your vault:
  -- event = {
  --   -- If you want to use the home shortcut '~' here you need to call 'vim.fn.expand'.
  --   -- E.g. "BufReadPre " .. vim.fn.expand "~" .. "/my-vault/**.md"
  --   "BufReadPre path/to/my-vault/**.md",
  --   "BufNewFile path/to/my-vault/**.md",
  -- },
  dependencies = {
    -- Required.
    "nvim-lua/plenary.nvim",

    -- see below for full list of optional dependencies 👇
  },
  opts = {
    workspaces = {
      {
        name = "personal",
        path = "~/vaults/personal",
      },
      {
        name = "work",
        path = "~/vaults/work",
      },
    },

    -- see below for full list of options 👇
  },
}

Using packer.nvim

use({
  "epwalsh/obsidian.nvim",
  tag = "*",  -- recommended, use latest release instead of latest commit
  requires = {
    -- Required.
    "nvim-lua/plenary.nvim",

    -- see below for full list of optional dependencies 👇
  },
  config = function()
    require("obsidian").setup({
      workspaces = {
        {
          name = "personal",
          path = "~/vaults/personal",
        },
        {
          name = "work",
          path = "~/vaults/work",
        },
      },

      -- see below for full list of options 👇
    })
  end,
})

Plugin dependencies

The only required plugin dependency is plenary.nvim, but there are a number of optional dependencies that enhance the obsidian.nvim experience.

Completion:

Pickers:

  • [recommended] nvim-telescope/telescope.nvim: for search and quick-switch functionality.
  • Mini.Pick from the mini.nvim library: an alternative to telescope for search and quick-switch functionality.
  • ibhagwan/fzf-lua: another alternative to telescope for search and quick-switch functionality.

Syntax highlighting:

Miscellaneous:

If you choose to use any of these you should include them in the "dependencies" or "requires" field of the obsidian.nvim plugin spec for your package manager.

Configuration options

This is a complete list of all of the options that can be passed to require("obsidian").setup(). The settings below are not necessarily the defaults, but represent reasonable default settings. Please read each option carefully and customize it to your needs:

{
  -- A list of workspace names, paths, and configuration overrides.
  -- If you use the Obsidian app, the 'path' of a workspace should generally be
  -- your vault root (where the `.obsidian` folder is located).

  -- the workspace to the first workspace in the list whose `path` is a parent of the
  -- current markdown file being edited.

Notes on configuration

Workspaces

For most Obsidian users, each workspace you configure in your obsidian.nvim config should correspond to a unique Obsidian vault, in which case the path of each workspace should be set to the corresponding vault root path.

For example, suppose you have an Obsidian vault at ~/vaults/personal, then the workspaces field in your config would look like this:

config = {
  workspaces = {
    {
      name = "personal",
      path = "~/vaults/personal",
    },
  }
}

However obsidian.nvim's concept of workspaces is a little more general than that of vaults, since it's also valid to configure a workspace that doesn't correspond to a vault, or to configure multiple workspaces for a single vault. The latter case can be useful if you want to segment a single vault into multiple directories with different settings applied to each directory. For example:

config = {
  workspaces = {
    {
      name = "project-1",
      path = "~/vaults/personal/project-1",
      -- `strict=true` here tells obsidian to use the `path` as the workspace/vault root,
      -- even though the actual Obsidian vault root may be `~/vaults/personal/`.
      strict = true,
      overrides = {
        -- ...
      },
    },
    {
      name = "project-2",
      path = "~/vaults/personal/project-2",
      strict = true,
      overrides = {
        -- ...
      },
    },
  }
}

obsidian.nvim also supports "dynamic" workspaces. These are simply workspaces where the path is set to a Lua function (that returns a path) instead of a hard-coded path. This can be useful in several scenarios, such as when you want a workspace whose path is always set to the parent directory of the current buffer:

config = {
  workspaces = {
    {
      name = "buf-parent",
      path = function()
        return assert(vim.fs.dirname(vim.api.nvim_buf_get_name(0)))
      end,
    },
  }
}

Dynamic workspaces are also useful when you want to use a subset of this plugin's functionality on markdown files outside of your "fixed" vaults. See using obsidian.nvim outside of a workspace / Obsidian vault.

Completion

obsidian.nvim will set itself up as an nvim-cmp source automatically when you enter a markdown buffer within your vault directory, you do not need to specify this plugin as a cmp source manually.

Note that in order to trigger completion for tags within YAML frontmatter you still need to type the "#" at the start of the tag. obsidian.nvim will remove the "#" when you hit enter on the tag completion item.

Syntax highlighting

If you're using nvim-treesitter you're configuration should include both "markdown" and "markdown_inline" sources:

require("nvim-treesitter.configs").setup({
  ensure_installed = { "markdown", "markdown_inline", ... },
  highlight = {
    enable = true,
  },
})

If you use vim-markdown you'll probably want to disable its frontmatter syntax highlighting (vim.g.vim_markdown_frontmatter = 1) which I've found doesn't work very well.

Concealing characters

If you wish to use the formatting concealment features, you will need to have conceallevel set to a value that allows it (either 1 or 2), for example: set conceallevel=1 in viml or vim.opt.conceallevel = 1 in a lua config.

Note naming and location

The notes_subdir and note_id_func options are not mutually exclusive. You can use them both. For example, using a combination of both of the above settings, a new note called "My new note" will assigned a path like notes/1657296016-my-new-note.md.

gf passthrough

If you want the gf passthrough functionality but you've already overridden the gf keybinding, just change your gf mapping definition to something like this:

vim.keymap.set("n", "gf", function()
  if require("obsidian").util.cursor_on_markdown_link() then
    return "<cmd>ObsidianFollowLink<CR>"
  else
    return "gf"
  end
end, { noremap = false, expr = true })

Then make sure to comment out the gf keybinding in your obsidian.nvim config:

mappings = {
  -- ["gf"] = ...
},

Or alternatively you could map obsidian.nvim's follow functionality to a different key:

mappings = {
  ["fo"] = {
    action = function()
      return require("obsidian").util.gf_passthrough()
    end,
    opts = { noremap = false, expr = true, buffer = true },
  },
},

Using templates

To insert a template, run the command :ObsidianTemplate. This will open a list of available templates in your templates folder with your preferred picker. Select a template and hit <CR> to insert. Substitutions for {{id}}, {{title}}, {{path}}, {{date}}, and {{time}} are supported out-of-the-box.

For example, with the following configuration

{
  -- other fields ...

  templates = {
      subdir = "my-templates-folder",
      date_format = "%Y-%m-%d-%a",
      time_format = "%H:%M",
  },
}

and the file ~/my-vault/my-templates-folder/note template.md:

# {{title}}

above the cursor position.

You can also define custom template substitutions with the configuration field templates.substitutions. For example, to automatically substitute the template variable {{yesterday}} when inserting a template, you could add this to your config:

{
-- other fields ...
templates = {
  substitutions = {
    yesterday = function()
      return os.date("%Y-%m-%d", os.time() - 86400)
    end
  }
}

Usage outside of a workspace or vault

It's possible to configure obsidian.nvim to work on individual markdown files outside of a regular workspace / Obsidian vault by configuring a "dynamic" workspace. To do so you just need to add a special workspace with a function for the path field (instead of a string), which should return a parent directory of the current buffer. This tells obsidian.nvim to use that directory as the workspace path and root (vault root) when the buffer is not located inside another fixed workspace.

For example, to extend the configuration above this way:

{
  workspaces = {
     {
       name = "personal",
       path = "~/vaults/personal",
     },
     ...
+    {
+      name = "no-vault",
+      path = function()
+        -- alternatively use the CWD:
+        -- return assert(vim.fn.getcwd())
+        return assert(vim.fs.dirname(vim.api.nvim_buf_get_name(0)))
+      end,
+      overrides = {
+        notes_subdir = vim.NIL,  -- have to use 'vim.NIL' instead of 'nil'
+        new_notes_location = "current_dir",
+        templates = {
+          subdir = vim.NIL,
+        },
+        disable_frontmatter = true,
+      },
+    },
+  },
   ...
}

With this configuration, anytime you enter a markdown buffer outside of "~/vaults/personal" (or whatever your configured fixed vaults are), obsidian.nvim will switch to the dynamic workspace with the path / root set to the parent directory of the buffer.

Please note that in order to avoid unexpected behavior (like a new directory being created for notes_subdir) it's important to carefully set the workspace overrides options. And keep in mind that to reset a configuration option to nil you'll have to use vim.NIL there instead of the builtin Lua nil due to the way Lua tables work.
