Markdown for Embedding Search Results

Embed search queries with this format

![](obsidian://search?query=Search%20Term)

The markdown ![]() for embedded content is is substantially established and seems to be a standard. The foundation to enable this feature is already present in Obsidian:

  • Search queries can be formatted as a URI
  • Search queries can be rendered in Preview

Let’s bridge these so that it falls in line with the dominant standard for embeds.

Example

Make this markdown using the Obsidian Search URI

![](obsidian://search?query=Search%20Term)

produce the same results as this

'''query
Search Term
'''

It’s a small request. But it’s a natural and elegant feature addition.

Also, it may be more powerful/flexible. The code-block style seems to lack features like searching other vaults, while the URI can

[Search Term](obsidian://search?vault=Any%20Vault&query=Search%20Term)
