Plugin to transform a url into markdown

Commands

  • Extract: Replace url with readable markdown extracted from the sites html content
  • Title Only: Replace url with a markdown anchor with the title extracted from the page content

Notes

Not every url’s content is extractable. If you get an error that’s probably what you have hit. Blog posts, news articles, technical posts all work great.

Developer notes

It took me an hour to rewrite obsidian-convert-url-to-iframe plugin plugin to do the defined behavior. Another 3 hours were spent fighting rollup and transitive dependencies who have circular dependency loops. Rollup is the devil.
