Install a Webclipper
Did I miss something, there is no Webclipper built into Obsidian? I am moving from Evernote (I just finished transferring my data to Notion but I am looking for a solution that keeps data locally, I can be off line a lot), Obsidian seemed great but I dpn’t see how to add web content, is this “shortly due”?
there isn’t an official web clipper (there are some third party extensions)
Obsidian is primarily for notes your write not for content that you collect from the internet.
I suggest MarkDownload. It works very well as a Obsidian friendly wev clipper, which one of my vaults is dedicated to.
Excellent! I use this addon in both Firefox and MS Edge.
Maybe I am trying to force a Square Peg into a Round Hole. My primary use is collecting and modifying Web Content (so I have an “external store” of things that I have found with added notes/tags so I can dig things up). Maybe Obsidian is not for me, any suggestions of other tools I should look at (I think I mentioned I am leaving Evernote as they appear to have “run their course”)?
You can try MarkDownload + Obsidian and see if it fits your workflow. Otherwise, maybe readwise? or some other clipper pocket?
I prefer the Obsidian clipper bookmarklet
@pdworkman Where do I find that?
I suggest MarkDownload as a webclipper, and Extract Highlights plugin (within Obsidian) to slice and dice your reference content.
