Is there a way to document the organic growth and evolution of the vault over time? I would like to document in regular intervals how the different metrics of the vaults properties change over time. So I could compare my way of creating and fostering a new vault as a beginner with an experienced users way of doing so.
Some possible metrics would be:
- number of notes
- number of words
- size of notes
- length of file-names
- number of tags
- number of links
All of the above may be interesting to know in three ways:
- how many different insert metric here are in this vault?
- how many insert metric here are in a file on average?
- how many files do have a certain number of insert metric here? (“probability distribution”)
Basicly I am looking for a way to compare Obsidian vaults. But not only the vault itself by size (e.g. number of files ) or growth rate , but to compare also the chosen approach for creating and using/fostering the vaults AND to compare the changes in the “quality” of the vault, which occurs during the organic growth and development of the vault.
Until now I tried to document the growth of the vault using the “tree-command” (Tree command in Linux with examples - GeeksforGeeks). But it only prints the number of files and their size. To me it seems, like an internal plug-in is needed.
I found this post (🐍 obsidiantools: Python package for doing advanced analytics of your vault) , which looks interesting to me, but im not sure whether this is what im looking for and I am a little bit overwhelmed by the technical stuff.
What do you think? Am I the only one who thinks this would be a good plugin /feature? (especially for beginners)?
