Look up Notes within a Google Search

When I look up things, I do not use my vault for it. Instead, I’m using a search engine. It would be nice, if related notes to a search could be embedded into the search results.

What I imagine (as an example in DuckDuckGo):

Do plugins exist, which can achieve something similar?

Possible non-plugin approaches (on MacOS):

  • Easiest but not quite the same: searching in Spotlight gives full-text search results for local files (not limited to Obsidian vault, with no preview) and suggestions for web searches.
  • I suspect Alfred and other fancy Spotlight replacements might get you closer to what you want, but I haven’t used them.
  • You could make a Shortcut that searches both Obsidian (using Obsidian URI) and the web. If you also use third-party window management tools like Magnet and Warp, it might be able to put Obsidian and the browser side-by-side for you.

If you’re not on Mac, these may help you find similar apps/approaches.
