One of the original differentiators of Obsidian was the lack of lock-in compared to Notion, Roam, or other tools. It’s just markdown! You can export it!
But lately I see so many workflows and plugins that are great but have features that seem to lock in notes to Obsidian or have a heavy reliance on plugins. From things like Dataview to small things like nested tags in YAML. Or block linking. Or embeds.
If Obsidian went away tomorrow, and you needed to use a more standard markdown editor or something VS Code, how much would your PKB break?
Is anyone else concerned about this? If I’m effectively locked into Obsidian, what difference is that compared to just using Notion or Roam. How are people mitigating this?
