Dear fellow Obsidianers,
I’m working on my first (non-toy) plugin…
Is there a way to create a custom block (not inline) widget in Obsidian’s CodeMirror v6, as documented here?
I get the following error:
RangeError: Decorations that replace line breaks may not be specified via plugins
I guess this is a restriction due to Obsidian’s implementation details, and there is no reasonable workaround. Or is there?
I know about
createCodeBlockPostProcessor, which can be used to show block HTML elements, but I don’t want to be restricted to markdown code fences. Also, I don’t want to use
registerMarkdownPostProcessor to show the widget only in preview mode. I want it to work in edit / live preview mode.
If there is no way to achieve block decorations/widgets with Obsidian’s CodeMirror, is there a way to replace the editor with a custom CodeMirror instance?
I’m still new to Obsidian and its plugin system. Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance!
