Quick question hope this is okay to ask. I wondered if there is a specific plugin or theme or any that is a good template for vaults that you could copy or download ready-made? That has a calendar, financial computation, calendar/reminder, space for being a python developer, and good note-taking. I use Obsidianfor my laptop and tablet and phone for quick note-taking and searching. (I’m only a free user and I use iCloud as my cloud repository.
Thank you in advance for you response community
I’ve not been very long around the block, so I might be wrong, but I reckon that setting up any vault in general is so much of a personal preference matter, that I don’t think you won’t find a vault preset with good folder/tag/link/… structure for your exact case.
With that being said, there are some common plugins loads of people seem to add to get going, and I’m not going to pretend this is a complete (or perfect) list, but here are some to get you going:
GitHub - SilentVoid13/Templater: A template plugin for obsidian – To build various templates for your various notes. This helps you to avoid typing stuff over and over again, and to get consistent structure of your notes
GitHub - blacksmithgu/obsidian-dataview: A high-performance data index and query language over Markdown files, for https://obsidian.md/. – An immensely useful tool to gather stuff from all around your vault
GitHub - chhoumann/quickadd: QuickAdd for Obsidian – I’ve just started using this, but it’s a valuable tool in combination with those above to make custom ways to create and combine common operations
GitHub - tgrosinger/advanced-tables-obsidian: Improved table navigation, formatting, and manipulation in Obsidian.md – A tool to enhance working with tables, and to allow table calculations. The latter is a little finicky, but it does work when you find the right syntax.
GitHub - obsidian-tasks-group/obsidian-tasks: Task management for the Obsidian knowledge base. – Personally I don’t use this plugin, but many do to keep track of tasks in more complex scenarios of recurrence, project, and what-not. I’m happy with core task markup, and Dataview on top of that
Home - Minimal Documentation – This is not a plugin, but a very popular theme. In addition to it looking good, I also use this to extend the functionality of tasks into being markers/placeholders for various events/action, and to enable be to do a bullet journalling variant using tasks. See Checklists - Minimal Documentation
GitHub - liamcain/obsidian-calendar-plugin: Simple calendar widget for Obsidian. and GitHub - liamcain/obsidian-periodic-notes: Create/manage your daily, weekly, and monthly notes in Obsidian – Are also often referenced by calendar afficionados, so I toss them in here. (I don’t use them as I use a very custom date format, which kind of breaks some of the functionality of these plugins, in addition to me just using Google Calendar for most of my appointment stuff. ) Highly recommended plugins throughout the community it seems.
So there you have a few recommendations on plugins I’d suggest for getting you started. You don’t need to master any of these for starters, but they’re good to keep around and work your way into them.
On the general setup of the vault I’d suggest to just get started writing the notes, and seeing what you want to have in your vault, and adjust the usage as you go. Some extra help might be found in the Knowledge managament section of this forum, and of course you’re free to come back and ask specific question as to how to achieve something in particular.
In the latter case, please be careful to include what you’ve tried, what your notes look like, and preferably a mockup of what you want to achieve. This will help the community a lot when responding to your request.
