Many people ask about a common config set across vaults, or syncing configs across their vaults.
I decided to try building something in Mac Shortcuts to achieve this, by copying the
.obsidian folder of the last-updated vault over those of other vaults.
Here is where I have got to so far with the Shortcut on Mac…
Shortcut: Obsidian Test for Mac 5
I’m seeking further input here. I do think something is possible to achieve this (though I’m sure there are also health warnings for why this is a bad idea). Maybe someone more switched-on than me can take this further?
- This is unfinished.
- It definitely throws an error around step 4.
- It has not been tested on iOS/iPadOS.
- It is designed to work with Obsidian vaults as stored in iCloud Drive (ie. people who also use Obsidian on iPadOS).
- Take care when running. However, the copy piece is actually not yet implemented, so it shouldn’t be destructive.
Any views on either the approach or the next steps, please?
