A Demo Vault with some opinions and a complete guide for getting started

I wrote a demo vault, and a ~10k word post on getting started with Obsidian.

You might be interested in the vault and guide if:

  • you want a resource to start using Obsidian, or to give to someone else
  • you would like a guide on simple workflows for journaling, self-organization, note-taking, project management, and storing memes in a memes database
  • you want a guide to plugins that solve minor paper cuts, or to take a look at my .obsidian.vimrc
  • you write LaTeX and want to improve the experience
  • gotta read something on the toilet and you’re trolling the Obsidian User Forum, why not this?

The guide does not cover using Obsidian in more complex ways (anything with Dataview or writing custom scripts).

Would appreciate any suggestions or comments.
