Mailmerge in Obsidian

Things I have tried

Nothing so far …

What I’m trying to do

I have a folder with contacts. I would like to do the following: type a letter/email body that contains some placeholders that refer to some (possibly/preferably dataview style) fields that all contacts have. Then by applying some Obsidian magic produce a seperate note for each contact that contains the letter with the placeholders filled in. In other words: an old-fashioned mailmerge.

It would be nice if you could also

  • run it on a subset of the contacts (those that have a certain value in a certain field or a combo of values).
  • decide where the seperate files will be stored
  • optionally open them all at once in separate tabs

My gut feeling tells me this should already be possible, but I have very little experience with Obsidian and none at all with javascript. So any help or advice that points in the right direction would be highly appreciated.
