Use Tabulator (interactive table) open obsidian file

The functions of Markdown table are really basic and not quite enough for common user case.

So. Use Tabulator ( interactive table JavaScript library) .

Tabulator didn’t support backlink [[ ]] . but we can add obsidian uri to open file.

You can customize Tabulator table function what you want. via http://tabulator.info/examples/

Such as


Demo file: tabulator-link.zip (1000 Bytes)

Don’t forget change your vault name in here :


If Obsidian allow use <iframe> local html, we can add table inside Obsidian.

If Obsidian allow preview local html, we can add table inside Obsidian.

If Obsidian support reference ,we can add and edit table inside Obsidian.


This solution require a little html, css, js knowledge.
Hope someone build more convince plugin.
