Obsidian Roundup - weekly newsletter for tips, news & resources

I have learned a lot about reading and writing “code” of various sorts, mostly while trying to answer questions on the forum here!


Question: do we know what Liam will be working on? I’ve seen Liam’s name on lots of contributions to plugins on github, both Liam’s and others’.


PS: I don’t have discord, which is a choice of mine that the newsletter certainly doesn’t have to accommodate, but just FYI @EleanorKonik that none of the discord links in the newsletter, even just to pictures, work for people who don’t have a discord account. I think there may be a way to copy a link directly to a picture, rather than the post, that gets around this when sharing just a picture, but not sure. Again, feel free to ignore and thanks for all your hard work on the newsletter and your insights on research and writing!

I don’t normally share links to just pictures (in fact I don’t see pictures when I’m writing it, I have a script that puts everything from certain channels into raw text that doesn’t have duplicated content which makes it easier to write the Roundu), but I do try to make sure it’s obvious which links are to Discord so people who don’t use it don’t click, and if there’s an alternative to Discord (i.e. I could have linked to a blog post) I try to use that :slight_smile:

As far as I know, he’s been working on stuff with Licat; he was the one who posted the release notes for 0.15.0 or 0.15.1 in Discord, and they said he helped with some of those changes.

Other than calendar, which I use all day long, I played around a bunch with the ReadIt Later plugin last week. Not sure if it’ll replace my bookmark manager, but it’s interesting for now.
