A cool trick
Want to list a bunch of linked notes in a kanban board (courtesy of @mgmeyers)? If you’re like me, the thought of typing out a hundred linked pages will leave you out of breath and make your thumbs ache.
Set up a Templater template using the “Paste clipboard into list of wikilinks” template found here: https://github.com/SilentVoid13/Templater/discussions/173
Use the following Dataview query to generate a list of notes. Edit the
WHEREline to search for whatever you want:
LIST WHERE contains(file.name, "ᐤ△") SORT file.name asc
Switch to preview. Select the list, then copy it to your clipboard.
Open the Kanban board as a markdown note:
- Switch to your kanban board.
- Click the board’s ⫶ menu.
- Click “Open as Markdown” to get a markdown view of the kanban board.
Under whatever heading you’d like, insert the template you created in (1).
The result will be a list of the notes you generated via the Dataview query above, formatted perfectly for your kanban list.
