Obsidian Publish alternatives

Obsidian Publish is great, but as a student, I can’t afford the 8 dollars/mth so I’ve been trying to find alternatives. Granted, they’re not as pretty or fully featured as Obsidian Publish and developers may stop supporting these projects but if you’re willing to work with compromises, here’s the list I’ve compiled from the forums so far.

  1. Obsidian Publish - 8USD/mth
  2. @obsidian-userland/publish
  3. Pubsidian - FREE and ELEGANT obsidian-publish alternative - Share & showcase - Obsidian Forum
  4. obsidian-mkdocs template
  5. GitHub - secure-77/Perlite: A webbased markdown viewer optimized for Obsidian

Digitial garden and obsidian:

  1. https://forum.obsidian.md/t/understanding-digital-garden-creation-with-obsidian/2725
  2. https://github.com/b3u/eleventy-garden
  3. https://github.com/kmcgillivray/obsidian-lettersmith

Let me know if I missed any. I’ll add them in.


why is this in developers & api?

My apologies, I must have selected the wrong category. Thanks for shifting it!

No problem

I released today my Free Publish methods here : Yet Another Free Publish Alternative (YAFPA)

I’m adding the (old) reply from Carl in the Discord server, which was based generously on @EleanorKonik’s roundup:

If you’re interested in a self-hosted/homebrewed version, there are a few options out there. Keep in mind that they might need some setup e.g. due to (lack of) compatibility with wikilinks. Here’s a small summary from the Obsidian Roundup:

For a longer description, check out these two roundups:

I have a simple view on this:
Taking things is wrong, in the same way as doing things to people is wrong. There should always be active consent.
