Org-sidian Bullets ◉ Instead Of # For Headers (Inspired by org-mode)

Hey guys,

Instructions and code is being updated and added to GitHub

GitHub - santiyounger/Org-sidian-Bullets: Org-mode bullet symbols for Obsidian

I also have instructions with screenshots in my blog now

This is what it looks like:

Theme Used Reverie: Santi Younger (available in the community themes)

this css code to replace the hashtag symbol # used for headers and change it for UTF-8 symbols.

Side note: Everything I’ll talk about is for edit mode

H1 instead of # display
H2 instead of ## display
H3 instead of ### display
H4 instead of #### display
H5 instead of ##### display
H6 instead of ###### display
and so on…

I come from using spacemacs and I love org-mode. I moved most of my workflow to obsidian, but there’s one thing I really miss, which is org-bullet points (this adds cools symbols to headings)

This is what it looks like in emacs:

GitHub - sabof/org-bullets: utf-8 bullets for org-mode


Things to consider

There are spaces that allow this kind of indentation (achieved through spaces)

Additional possible features

Org-mode also allows for a shortcut such as alt+ to move headings quickly from h1 to h2 and so on. and alt+ to move from h2 to h1

This is something I’d like to turn into a request or if possible even develop as a plug in (perhaps as I get more advanced with javascript, it might be possible)


Special Thanks

This was possible thanks to the css wizard himself @death.au in this post

Hide or Truncate URLs in Editor using CSS? - #14 by death.au

Considerations

This looks a lot better when all headings are the same size
