Here’s an awesome idea
that I’d love to hear your thoughts on:
There’s an amazing app called ginkgo gingko
the concept is to be able to write in a tree structure with extreme ease and excellent shortcuts (using vim style shortcuts)
this is gingko, we can see how text is organized
The tree structure of writing makes long form writing a great experice.
Users of gingko have even wrote full books with this amazing structure!
Gingko is a great project and it’s open-source (not fully free though) the biggest disadvantage is that it doesn’t store files in local
Which is a problem because we can’t easily integrate it with Obsidian and other markdown apps.
An Obsidian plugin would fully solve this issue.
Like we’ve seen in amazing plugins like “Kanban” by @mgmeyers it’s possible to have this modular experience, where a markdown file can be visualized from a custom view, in this case kanban
I made a video on this if you are not familiar:
If gingko could become an Obsidian plugin we could have the best of both worlds
For anyone who writes long-form content.
The tree structure of gingko is next level, once you try it, you want to be able to use this logic for every piece of content you write.
I’ve been talking with an amazing developer, his name is Artem and he is interested in making this idea a reality.
But first we need your help to make sure that this is something you’d like to use
Share your thoughts below, let’s make this happen
It’s great to see how much interest there’s been! A couple of important highlights in case you don’t read all the way to the end of the replies:
@artem the creator of the plugin unfortunately is in the middle of the Ukraine crisis, so as you can understand he is dealing with a lot right now.
Thankfully @hungsu came to the rescue as a contributor and helped to beta published the plugin (with the BRAT plugin). It’s a way for non-techy people to be able to install plugins that are not yet officially published, more info on his instructions here:
