Obsidian (the note making app) from my perspective and experience.

thumbnail for Obsidian

This is a round up of all the plugins, hotkey overrides, tips, tricks and settings I use for Obsidian and Obsidian Plugins.

You can read about how I structure my obsidian vault here.

I have also experimented with different ways to publish my notes to the web so that others can benefit from being able to see them and for a brief period of time used Obsidian Publish.
