I’ve got an existing tool that uses a slightly different file format. Each note has a filename
YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM-SS.md and contains the header:
--- created: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS-ZZ:00 modified: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS-ZZ:00 --- # Title
I’m trying to figure out if there’s a way to make Obsidian work with this format, or barring that, find a common format that both new and old tools will read. (E.g., I can put the title in the YAML metadata if that would help.)
As best I can tell, Obsidian’s native format is to name the file
Title.md and not to track any YAML metadata by default at all. I guess it relies on the filesystem for tracking created/modified timestamps. On a quick scan I cannot see any easy options to tweak Obsidian’s behavior at all. I don’t see any obvious plugins either, though I’ve only done a cursory scan of what’s available.
Is there a way to do what I want?
