I don’t use assets folders. Instead I rename all assets the same name as the file ending with a number, and put them in the same folder. If I need to move a file outside Obsidian I instantly know which other files to grab.
In Windows explorer I have a batch file that auto hides everything except the md files, and with Explorer set to “hide files” (the left column in the screenshot)I get a nice clean look of my md files, but it’s just a click of a mouse to display all hidden files if I must (the right column)
I would like a similar “hidden items” type checkbox for my Obsidian navigation pane on the left. I need to display the png and jpg etc files when I first save them in my folder so that I can select them and rename them the same as the relevant md file. But once that’s done, they just all get in the way.
Implementing something like this would be great and I think grow to a large software engineer community
Markdown files within a code base that have ReadMe.md in subfolders or projects. I have tried this currently with Obsidian with my Home Lab and personal projects folder but it slows Obsidian way down, almost to unusable levels.
If I could put in a .obignore file just like .gitignore in git, then I could keep everything out that is just extra to the codebase.
The only thing currently available is to ignore a whole folder and that becomes way too cumbersome with multiple projects. This reason alone took me away from using the mobile version as it kept freezing up.
Hopefully this can get some traction!!
Thanks for an awesome platform thus far!
I know this is old, but I just spent several hours browsing the forum because I was too dense to find both of these features in settings. I don’t how long they’ve been there, but they work exactly as expected on v. 0.14.6. Wow…what devs–what a product!
