Action

Send to Obsidian Vault

Posted by agiletortoise, Last update about 1 month ago

Add the current draft to an Obsidian vault as a new file, using the first line of the draft as the file name. The file will be stored in the default location for new files based on Obsidian settings.

By default, this action will send to a vault named “MY-VAULT-NAME”. To change the vault used, edit the template of the first “Define Template Tag” step in the action to be the name of a valid vault in your Obsidian installation.

To target different vaults, duplicate the action and change the vault name in the first action step.

This example utilizes Obsidian’s URL scheme support. More details on available options in their documentation.

Note that Drafts can also write to files using files action, if you wish to implement actions which write directly to a file in a folder used as an Obsidian vault.
