Some quality of life improvements

Having used Obsidian for about 48 hours, I have some thoughts that I wanted to put down as feature requests, I’ve tried to categorise them. If any of these exist, great! Maybe I missed something.

[Files and the graph]

  • [ ] Add .obsidianignore file support so additional folders (e.g. .github, .custom, etc) can be ignored, also things like Markdown files for Github (see screenshot below)
  • [ ] Add support to frontmatter to mark files to be ignored in the graph, even when linked - these are things like template files


  • [ ] Add support for folder and file properties, for example being able to specify an icon or change the colour
  • [ ] Add support for graph properties like shape and colour
  • [ ] Support undo history between UI changes between preview and code

Please one thread per request and follow the template.

Also please search, some of the things you are asking have already thread open and some are implemented in plugins.
