one category of my notes should be “sources”.
Before Obsidian introduced properties, I tagged my source-notes with nested #source/…-tags (like #source/article or #source/film).
Now I want to switch to using properties instead of tags and I’m wondering what consequences this would have for dataview-queries.
I read in the dataview-doc (=> Sources) that either tags, folder, specific files or links can be used as sources, using the Data command “From”.
=> the consequence would be querying my source notes without the “From” Command, with only the “Where” command, like:
```dataview List Where file.frontmatter.sourcetyp ```
```dataview List Where file.frontmatter.sourcetyp = "book" ```
… which means, that all files in my vault are considered in the query, which could lead to performance issues.
Until now I didn`t experience any performance issues, but I thought I read somewhere, that this is not a good and performant way to source the notes and I want to be sure, that I can expect that good performance, when my vault further grows…
- Is my process of adding metadata to source-notes recommendable, or do you see better ways?
- Should I use the “From” command? But how can I use this command with properties?
Thanks in advance,
