Overview

Connect your browser with your notes in Obsidian. Obsidian Web is a customizable web clipper for Obsidian with advanced features.

This is a Chrome extension for Obsidian* that allows you to more tightly integrate your browser with your notes in Obsidian. Obsidian Web makes clipping content from the web into your notes seamless, but that's just the basic part -- it also has advanced features that help you to find out when you already have notes before you take the time to add them again, and to remind you about what your thoughts were last time you were there. Features: - Templates: Configure how your content will appear in your notes by editing simple templates. Want to add information that isn't the page title, URL, or the text you've selected? You can change the content you are about to send to your notes on a case-by-case basis by clicking on the "Entry Details" dropdown from the pop-up menu. - Note Recall: Have you been to this page before? Maybe you already have notes about it? Obsidian Web can search your notes to see if you've mentioned this page before, and if so, let you open that note in Obsidian or update it with new content. - Periodic Notes: Want to append or patch your daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly notes? This gives you an "Append to current daily note" option out-of-the-box, but maybe you want to use a different interval or insert your content in a specific section of your daily note? Just modify the template and you can. Note that this requires the Obsidian Periodic Notes plugin: https://obsidian.md/plugins?id=periodic-notes To get started: 1. Install this extension from the Chrome Web Store 2. Install & enable the "Local REST API" plugin from the Community Plugins section in Obsidian. 3. Click on the "Obsidian Web" icon in your toolbar and follow the instructions. To report a bug or suggest a feature, go to: https://github.com/coddingtonbear/obsidian-web/discussions *Please note that the authors of this extension have no affiliation with the makers of Obsidian. New in version 3.3.0: - Adds slightly improved bug reporting information when exporting a bug report. - Adds better warning messages when your version of Obsidian Local REST API is out-of-date. - Distinguishes between local HTTP and remote HTTP connections, and only warns you to use HTTPs if your HTTP connection isn't local. New in version 3.2.0: - Do you write notes about a page and want to be reminded of them when you browse to that page again? You can now configure Obsidian Web to automatically open the extension menu and show you a notice when you navigate to a URL you've already written notes about. This is particularly useful if you need to remind yourself about why you might not want to buy a particular thing on Amazon or listen to a particular book on Audible. Read more here: https://github.com/coddingtonbear/obsidian-web/wiki/Automatic-Match-Display - Do you want to remind yourself of notes you have about a page *before* you click on a link to that page? Now you can configure Obsidian Web to show you when you have notes about a page just by hovering over a link to it. You can even set a custom message for it to show you when you hover over a link to that particular page, too. You can find out more about this feature here: https://github.com/coddingtonbear/obsidian-web/wiki/Hover-Messages New in version 3.1.0: - Added a new bug report export feature making it easier for issues to be troubleshot. You can find this via the "bug" shaped icon in the upper-right corner of the options panel. New in version 3.0.0: - A completely new Pop-Up that's a lot easier to use and understand. - It's now shown inside your page content and allows you to leave the pop-up open while you collect whatever content you want to gather from the page without needing to close and re-open the pop-up every time you realize you need to copy something from your page. You can drag the pop-up around, too, if it's in the way! - Templates are shown and rendered on-the-fly in the interface so you can better understand how your templates are used for generating your notes. - It's now launchable by a keyboard shortcut -- by default Alt+Shift+O. You can find instructions for how to change the keyboard shortcut in Options. Closing the pop-up is also doable from the keyboard now, too -- just press your Esc key. - There's now support for connecting to Obsidian instances other than the one running on localhost for those of you who are using Docker images or have Obsidian running on another machine in your network. - Extra context is provided from Readability (https://github.com/mozilla/readability) in addition to your page content. Now the title, length, excerpt, byline, etc. information that Readability extracts from the document are available as context variables. New in version 2.2.0: - Automatic Drafting: You can now open and modify the content in the pop-up menu multiple times without losing what you had previously entered. - Markdown Selections: Selection is provided as Markdown text instead of a plain-text string. - Import/Export: Settings can be exported and imported as a JSON file. New in version 2.1.0: - Note Recall (optionally-enabled) - When opening the extension pop-up, the extension will search your notes to see if you've mentioned this URL before and provide you options for opening or editing that existing note if so. - Optionally, will search your notes in the background while browsing the web and let you know (by showing a badge on the extension icon) if you've mentioned this page before or if you have a dedicated note for it without requiring you to open the extension pop-up to find out. - Improved page content snapshots. Since version 2.0.0, page content has been available via the {{page.content}} template variable -- now that content has been trimmed down to include only what matters using Readability.js. - New {{uuid}} template function allowing you to randomly generate IDs for your notes. New in version 2.0.0: - Several new template helpers are available including: - {{date}}: Displays a timestamp. Can also receive a second argument for declaring format. - {{filename FIELD}}: Removes filename-unsafe characters from FIELD. Useful when creating a new document from, for example, a page title. - {{json FIELD}}: JSON-encodes the string in FIELD. Useful for including arbitrary page details in YAML frontmatter. - {{quote FIELD}}: Prefixes every line of FIELD with a '>' so as to display it as a blockquote in your notes. - Handlebars is now used as the template language, allowing for much-more-complex template logic. - Page content (as markdown) is available for use in your templates. - A new 'Capture page snapshot' default template exists that will capture as a markdown document and save it into your notes. - A new 'Restore default templates' button allowing you to restore the original default templates should you have accidentally deleted them or want to see the original versions for reference.

OMG, I love it. When I first installed the extension, I didn’t take the time to learn how to configure it, and the default behavior wasn’t what I was looking for. But I took a second pass at it and realized it’s far more powerful than the Evernote extension I’m replacing (#metoo). I’m a web developer, so I was comfortable configuring it, but I can see how it would be daunting to a layman. I was able to configure my own simple rule for saving the link and title to a custom note in my vault.... Show more

Neat idea. Poor execution. Will work once and then one successive tabs/browser instances it will never work again unless you remove everything and set up the API key again. This is on the latest version of the Local REST API and the latest version of the Web clipper I see on similar reviews the developer is telling people to read the forums but the forums are just the developer again asking if the people with the problems are sure things are set up correctly Yes, this is set up correctly, ...

I'm afraid you're mistaken! Seeing such a behavior always means that you have either installed the certificate twice or have installed a certificate that's out-of-date. I understand that installing certificates is a little tricky if you aren't very technical, and you can feel free to use the "insecure mode" if the certificate installation process is too much for you.
