It’s been more than a decade since I last did any JS programming so I wrote a simple python tool instead: `Custom Dictionary.txt` sync tool - #4 by cabin.mooring
But it would be lovely if this functionality was “native” to obsidian so you didn’t need to bother with an external tool… especially since Electron/Obsidian does not observe external changes made to the custom dictionary
The plugin would be very light weight and would do only one thing
$vaultRoot/someListOfWords.txtand wherever the Electron
Custom Dictionary.txtfile lives on the current host; it’s different on windows/mac and Linux
(file paths are examples, ideally would be user configurable)
This way, the
someListOfWords.txt can be kept in sync between all computers that share a vault while stil leveraging the built in spell check function which relies on a text file that is not kept in the vault folder and has a unique location per computer.
