Web highlighter for Roam Research

This extension offers an easy way to highlight text on a web page and import it to note-taking apps like Roam Research, Obsidian, Logseq or Notion in the format that best suits your workflow. This is especially helpful of you are doing research, want to build your own knowledge-base or just want to save your favorite blog articles. FEATURES: → Easily highlight any text on a web page → Add tags to bring your highlights into context → Customise the format of your copied highlights with placeholders → Jump to the next open Roam Research tab, to quickly insert your highlight HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT THE EXTENSION? The quickest way to launch the extension is with a hotkey (e.g CMD + SHIFT + R). You can set a hotkey in the Chrome Settings for Extensions. Next you can create your own format for the highlights, by going into the widget settings. Play around with the placeholders and use spaces to indent content. QUESTIONS / FEEDBACK: Do you have questions or feedback? The best approach is to write me directly on PERMISSIONS: Roam Highlighter needs to modify the websites you visit to display the widget. That's why it needs the requested permissions to function properly. However, the exact phrase ("Read and change all your data on the website you visit") make it sound more invasive than it actually is. Currently, the extension runs completely on your local machine and the only thing that is saved, are the settings you make.

Great service, but I want an option to add quotation marks to the copied text so I don't have to do so in Roam.

After highlighting, search integration for a single/ combined selection must be included for search engines, youtube, yandex etc.
