I am using Obsidian as a file organizer. I.e. I am storing different files in Obsidian, for each file I am creating markdown file (which describes original file and contains hashtags). So with Obsidian I can easily find any information I saved previously.
So very often I am repeating the same sequence:
- I am adding a file to Obsidian directory tree (for example The_very_interesting_book.pdf)
- I create the directory with the same name as filename (i.e. The_very_interesting_book/)
- I move file to this directory (drag The_very_intersting_book.pdf to The_very_interesting_book/ )
- I create markdown file with the same name (i.e. The_very_interesting_book/The_very_interesting_book.md)
- I add reference to original file in this markdown file (i.e. I add to The_very_interesting_book.md a line: [[The_very_interesting_book.pdf]]
- I add hashtags to markdown file
Add to a file context menu “Obsidianificate” item. This item should perform items 2-5 of the list above.
This will save a lot of efforts, virtually enabling adding hashtags to any files, not only to markdown (because markdown file will be in the same directory and it will be easy to find it due to hashtags). So this will make finding the original file (The_very_interesting_book.pdf) very easy.
May be this feature can be added via plugin. I am not entirely sure, if plugin API can do this and if it will be convenient.
