Hi, I’m interested in developing an Obsidian plugin which exposes a custom modal dialog, akin to the open-file (Ctrl-O) and run-command (Ctrl-P) dialogs. Is there an extensible API available (or plans to make one) that exposes this dialog view, including the autocomplete functionality? I browsed through the Obsidian API documentation but wasn’t able to find anything obviously relevant.
Concretely, what I’d look for in the API is
- access to the modal view
- flexible lazy-loading of results from a provider given the query
- (extra plus) extensible item result view, so that we can provide custom formatted results – for example, results which have both a title and a body rather than just a title
I’d be interested to know whether something like this is available/in the works, or at least register my interest in the feature. Thanks!
FWIW, this is intended for an auto-citation plugin I’m interested in making, which would link up to Zotero and possibly other tools.
