We are building Jump Ship, the service that enables you to simply and easily import very large and complex Notion workspaces for use in Obsidian.
Here’s a few screenshots of the service in action.
You can sign up for beta-testing here.
The standard Notion export has problems.
The ZIP process from Notion gives a set of ZIP files which are very large, as well as incompatible with each other. There are file-name conflicts, broken links, weird structuring.
Sometimes the ZIP export process doesn’t even work.
The bigger and more complex the workspace, the more problems you’re going to run into.
To avoid all of this, and get a closer match with your Notion content, we retrieve your data through direct API access. This is instead of through the ZIP export process.
This enables us to:
- Retrieve more data about your pages.
- Avoid common standard Notion export issues:
- Notion export crashes due to large files.
- Notes exporting with titles and no content.
- Export a render that is:
- Already formatted.
- Immediately available.
- Requires no post-processing.
We also provide advanced templating support, enabling you to get your Notion pages imported in the same way as you’re used to in Obsidian.
Using our templating system, you are able to filter to only export the pages and files that you actually care about, as well as format them in the way that you need:
Templating format subject to change.
We also provide custom, dedicated support for switching, so if you run into any issues with how notes are imported and/or formatted, we can work with you to get that right.
- Login to our Jump Ship service.
- Press the “add workspace” button.
- Use the web selector to click on the Notion workspace to export.
- Change your export template(s) (or use the default).
- Press the “add to queue” button.
- Download your workspace as a ZIP file when it’s ready.
- Naming pasted images as the page title instead of “Untitled”.
- Choose between
[[links]]for Select & Multi-Select properties.
- Smart & automatic note title truncation, preserving the original title in the file.
- Clean organisation of files on the file system with actual names (instead of random IDs).
- Page properties formatted in a way that Dataview can read.
- Fetching page titles in bookmark links.
- Embedded content, with clean sync blocks and image embeds.
- Links between notes.
- And more…
(Keep in mind that we aim to get as accurate render as possible. Anything missing here, contact us and we can work to resolve this.)
If you’re interested, please sign-up for beta testing here.
Public release coming “soon” (most likely Q4 2023).
