Here’s an awesome idea
that I’d love to hear your thoughts on:
Writing in a tree structure
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)
Here a demo
this is gingko, we can see how text is organized
Reinventing the way we write
The tree structure of writing makes long form writing a great experice.
Users of gingko have even wrote full books with this amazing structure!
Ginkgo Disadvantages that Obsidian could solve
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.
Why an Obsidian Plugin
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
Who is this for?
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.
Making it happen
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
