Request to add http socks proxy as built-in feature

Use case or problem

In a restricted network (mostly in company), obsidian cannot connect to Internet. In this case, Sync feature won’t work, plugins cannot download / update.

Proposed solution

Add proxy settings as a built-in feature to allow ==http/socks5 proxy== to update plugins and sync.

Current workaround (optional)

No workaround:

  • Using OS proxy is NOT a workaround as it mess up all other running applications in the system (Windows).
  • Obsidian even doesn’t support http_proxy env variable in Linux.

Related feature requests (optional)

This feature is requested many times, you CANNOT just ignore it forever!!


+1, this would be extremely helpful if I could point obsidian at a ssh SOCKS proxy directly from within obsidian settings.

Or any proxy really setting (https) in Obsidian… at the least honor https_proxy environment variable… Love the product, paying member, but this is a big negative in my workflow/environment.
