I have an idea of the new paid service from Obsidian:
Obsidian Wiki Engine.
Or maybe just another paid feature for
The idea is to be able to have community editing features, just from the browser with the ability to download the entire vault for local editing, if needed.
I think this product might have a good place in the market, as I didn’t see good markdown-based wiki engines. For example, BookStack supports some subset of markdown but many useful features are missing and maintaining local markdown mirror is not supported.
I would definitely buy such product as I am not satisfied with any of the existing wiki engines available on the market.
- Create new paid service
Obsidian Wikior add another paid feature for
- Allow editing markdown from the browser.
- Allow download entire vault locally.
- Add more advanced security permission model comparing to current
Obsidian Publish. We need to be able to allow people to self-register like in usual wiki engines such as MediaWiki, DokuWiki, BookStack etc.
- Consider allowing self-hosted solutions.
The workaround is extremely lame.
Currently I am managing one wiki like that for the Russian-speaking Obsidian community.
In order to be able to accept the changes, I host the vault on
GitHub and allow pull requests for the community members to make modifications.
But this is way more technically challenging than the normal wiki experience, that’s why I came here with such request.
