I recently started using Obsidian and have slowly been working it into my daily workflow.

One thing I’d like to be able to do is to use the iOS share sheet to send a URL to Obsidian with the ability to choose where it goes and make a note about it so I can keep track of bookmarks for various projects.

Is there any way to do this inside Obsidian or using iOS shortcuts with Obisdian?

Thanks!

    Oh Omnivore for sure!!! It’s a reader app so you send it there. Read, highlight and it sends the highlights to Obsidian. It can also handle newsletters and RSS feeds. Did I mention it’s free?

      That actually looks very promising so I set up my account, linked it to my Obsidian vault with the API key and everything but when I try to fetch articles, nothing happens. It says it fetched them successfully, but I have no idea where they are. All the settings for the Omni plugin are default. I’m still very new to Obsidian, so I’m probably overlooking something, however I could not find my problem addressed anywhere yet. Got any idea how to set it up correctly or what I might’ve overlooked?

        Did you go in the Omnivore plugin settings to point it to a folder? I just created a folder called “Omnivore” and it drops all into that folder.

          Alright, so it has been a while since I tried it, but the ‘problem’ was that I tried to important pages that weren’t marked when the default settings in the Obsidian extension only imported marked text. So that’s ‘fixed’ now by changing the setting to import whole pages.

          However I now noticed it botches some links by using the wrong markdown when importing and I couldn’t find a fix for that yet, but the rest seems to work at least.

          What I also want to try is to use a template when syncing with Omnivore so it automatically inserts a date and some hashtags. Not sure how to set it up for this specific task.
