Please add spellcheck
Wouldn’t this be possible for a plugin to accomplish? Spellcheck can get really complex depending on the user. Might be better to support this with plugins, same as a code linter or other helpful tool.
There’s a builtin spellchecker that can be used with the latest version of Electron
I’d say this definitely falls in the core of the app, since it has a native-interaction component to it. We could provide an API for plugins to override the suggestions though.
Electron does provide the spellchecker, but since we’re using CodeMirror, which doesn’t use content-editable, we actually need to hook up quite some code for the spellchecker to work in the editor.
This might be trickier, but an integration with a service Grammarly would be awesome too, and would automatically take care of spellchecking.
That’s firmly plugin territory I’d say.
Just want to add my vote for spellcheck capability. I used to use aspell in vim. Seemed to work well. Don’t know if it still exists…
As the wheel has already been invented, if at all possible, it would be nice to use 3rd party solutions such as Grammarly or LanguageTool.
I prefer a system (ex Mac) spell checker. Don’t like Grammarly getting more and more content they look at (and misuse possibly). So system level spell checking, thx.
I would definitely appreciate this, I often misspel when I’m freeflowing!
This is a must-have for me. This is one of only 2 things holding me back from fully embracing Obsidian right now
Also for me, this is crucial
I would also kill for a spellchecker
up vote for this one! plug in or native it’s a must have for any writing app.
I am well known as the King of Typos!
+1 Mac spell checker
System spellchecker has the added bonus of text expansion and replacement, at least on Mac.
+1 For system spellcheck
+1 for privacy.
I’m trying Obsidian because I can keep my info private in my computer, I don’t need/want another ‘app’ calling home.
3rd party tools, like Grammarly, will be great.
+1 for system
