It would be useful to have ProWritingAid plugin in Obsidian.

Great to see someone else is interested in a ProWritingAid plugin! I came to see if I could find any interest and to give my support for integration of this wonderful writer’s tool. ProWritingAid is fantastic and together with Obsidian it would be a huge leap forward for my uses.

Is there any hope to have ProWritingAid integration here?

I, too, would be thrilled to see this, as I have an API key which works with several other programs already! It would be fabulous to have them here as well!

I really hope this happens! I love ProWritingAid and use it regularly but having it as a plugin that automatically works along with me as it does in Chrome browser would be truly fabulous.

But you can just have both open. PWA reads markdown files. You can write in either.

Apart from adding knowledge of Obsidian syntax, I’m not sure what else a plugin would add.

Hi, Everyone,
ProWritingAid released an app called ProWritingAid Everywhere for Windows. I can confirm that, unlike my Grammarly app, it works in conjunction with Obsidian.

I’m not sure I understand what you mean. Are you saying it can have a .md file open that you are currently also editing in Obsidian and it will show you potential edits?

And, if having the same file open in both apps, I suppose that means you can apply the changes on the PWA side and it will carry over in real-time?

Are you referring to the fact that PWA has an API and you have the key to use with other apps you use? Or, are you saying you have written plugins that use API keys from other sources?

I happened to find this: Grammar Check API from ProWritingAid - Used by over 2 Million People

I have no idea how to write an Obsidian plugin that could use this API, but am also wondering if this is a newer development by PWA.

Yes, yes.

Never occurred to me to try this! While a plugin would be better for workflow, this should help in the meantime. Thanks!

There can be advantages in having both open. PWA can look very busy and distracting.

Fair point.

I’m actually writing a novel in Obsidian and would only want to grammar check after the creative writing process for that use case. So, not a big deal to later open those md files in PWA.
