As a discussion about hidden folder on IOS appear regularly on the discord, I think it will be good to create a forum discussion about it.
I have two solutions in mind to work with hidden folder to access to my
- Using Textastic, that is a wonderful app created by the same guy of Working Copy. Not free, but work totally with many apps, as it’s an edit text file. Here, you can bookmark a folder and access all file in it, so you can edit a note but also your
.obsidianfile. I use it a lot to edit my css snippet on my ipad, for example.
- Using a-shell : A completely free app, that get you access to a real terminal on your ipad/iphone. Bonus : it’s totally open source, and you can do a very lot of things with it : run python script, install pip script…
For a-shell, the methods is little tricky to add your folder, so I made a video : A-shell obsidian
Thanks to Murf, here is a writted guide :
Ok so you can also do the same thing with a-shell app. After using pickFolder the Files app selector pops up (see screenshot). Then use jump to cd to the bookmark you created from the Files pop up. It will be the name of the folder (your vault) so you use “jump iPhone” in my example because my vault is named iPhone. Then the rest you can follow my replies message above to access the hidden .obsidian and plugin folders.
Also, you need to know that edit on a-shell is trough vim… So, you need to know vim.
I work on some shortcuts to edit your obsidian file with a-shell, so stay stunned
If you know other apps/methods, please add it here!
