Concept - Sometimes an idea comes to you, and you want to jot it down in a flash. Opening Obsidian, clicking New Note or navigating to a note, clicking back to what you were doing before Obsidian, that’s just too much work. Yes you’re that lazy. This post is about maximum optimization.
Solution - Hit the spotlight key on your macbook, -type your idea. Done. It doesn’t matter if Obsidian is even open. All of your ideas are safely in Inbox.md.
Click to play the whole thing (idk why it plays the first couple seconds on loop)
My implementation - I just use Alfred to run a text append command in shell. Obsidian Quick Capture.alfredworkflow.zip (208.4 KB) Only issue is I told it to add everything new to line 1 so your Inbox.md can’t be blank.
Future ideas - dedicated homescreen icon for Android/iOS that brings up your keyboard in 1 click, and saves whatever you typed to Inbox.md when you change focus (turn off phone, click away from input popup, etc).
What made you think of this?
This feature is already familiar to Dynalist users, I thought Obsidian needed it too. -
