Live recommender system that suggests similar/related notes while we edit notes

Hi, it would be awesome if Obsidian suggests related/similar notes while we’re editing a note. It’s similar to how this forum (and others like stackoverflow) suggests similar topics/questions while we’re drafting our question or note.

I don’t think any note-taking app has implemented something like what I’m suggesting? (correct me if I’m wrong?) This plugin/feature, together with backlinks, will make Obsidian super powerful at connecting notes and ideas.


It is implemented in Evernote. It’s named “Context”

This user made a plugin demo for Roam that had those traits.

I agree, having options to leverage our links (and the insights/data they provide) with novel interfaces, views, searches, suggestions, prompts, etc is awesome and can offer exciting options for users to bring into their workflows.

DEVONthink does it very well.

There’s a similar request here. Can be merged.

This is a must in Obsidian. It will be the missing link between Mentioned Links and a user search for a specific word.
I’m not a programmer but I’m thinking of counting recurring words and/or syntagms and show “Related notes” in a separate panel. And it must have the option for customization: ex: if a word appear 3 or 4 (user choice) time in a note pull up in related. This is in order to differentiate between simple mention of a concept and writing a little bit more about it, but not that extended as in a dedicated note.
