Force Obsidian Sync to re-sync .obsidian (and other folders if need be)

Hello there!

I’ve had some issue with Obsidian Sync kinda missing some files being modified within .obsidian/ (so settings and stuff, mostly plugin settings), and so I got some headaches trying to have coherent settings between all my devices (mostly my macos laptop and my windows desktop).

To remedy this, I’ve written a small node js script that recursively inserts an EOL character at the end of each file within the .obsidian folder. I hope this can help anyone that got the same issue that I had!

const fs = require("fs");
const path = require("path");

const acceptedExtensions = [".md", ".txt", ".js", ".css", ".html", ".json"];

function writeEolAtEndOfFile(filePath) {
  if (!acceptedExtensions.includes(path.extname(filePath))) return;
  fs.appendFileSync(filePath, "\n");

function goTroughDirRecursively(dirPath, callback) {
  const files = fs.readdirSync(dirPath);
  files.forEach((file) => {
    const filePath = path.join(dirPath, file);
    const stat = fs.statSync(filePath);
    if (stat.isDirectory()) {
      goTroughDirRecursively(filePath, callback);
    } else {

// change the path to the folder you want to touch all files in, it can be also be a "normal" fodler with markdown files, relative to where this script is located
// you can also give it an absolute path if need be
goTroughDirRecursively(path.resolve(__dirname, "../../.obsidian"), writeEolAtEndOfFile);
