Soulver / Numbr -like calculator functionality for Obsidian

Hello!

After a quick search, I couldn’t find an existing plugin for Obsidian that does this, but I would love it if someone built one.

If you’re unfamiliar, Soulver and Numbr are like a simple text editor that works as a pseudo-natural language calculator. A quick look at the Numbr website will show what I mean, as that one is actually browser-based.

I think this would be super useful for Obsidian! I use these kinds of tools often for taking notes on things that use maths, like budgeting, trading, house planning, etc. and having them separate from the rest of my notes on the same topics is tiresome.

Hopefully others also think this would be useful!

Note that this suggestion is similar but distinct from the suggestion by @Daniyal-Ahmed here: Calculator Plugin for Obsidian

I just remember there’s another one too called Numi which is built for macOS, but is on GitHub under an MIT license: GitHub - nikolaeu/numi: Beautiful calculator app for macOS

Edit: Actually, it may not be the app itself that’s on GitHub there… may just be helpers for integrations with the app.

I use Numi and ended up here because I was looking for a plugin like this. I will likely end up building one if no one else has.

Let me know if you do, I could really use a calc plugin for Obsidian!

Realizing my previous post belongs more on the other calculator plugin post, so moving there

Just want to ask if any plugin was ever created?
