Things I have tried
I’ve searched around but it’s a bit difficult due to the @ symbol - if there’s something out there, please let me know!
What I’m trying to do
I’d like to be able to use @ as shorthand for aliases, like
- [ ] #share news with @julia
- [x] buy #gift for @tom

I’d love to have these treated in the same way as [] links, but autocomplete seems like it may be more easily achieved. Is this something that an existing plugin supports?
I would also like this function. It might be useful to observe that Dynalist has this function. It might be easily transferable (I know less than nothing about these things)? It might be useful in integrating Dynalist with Obsidian (along with markdown export in Dynalist).
Long discussion here:
A really awesome plugin would be an @-mention feature that works just like Tags, except it uses @ to link to a person or identity. # Tags are for topics; [[wiki]]-style links are an option but they don’t port over to almost any social media platform. There’s also apps like NotePlan 3 (see link, below) that work nicely in combination with Obsidian and which support the now-commonplace @name syntax.
Here are some use cases:
Distinguishing people (
@KuraFire), topics (#tags), and pages ([[Hello,…

Ahh, thanks - and I even upvoted it ages ago (memory fades, that’s why I need a PIM/PKM I suppose!)
@Dor! I’ll chime in over there.
