Features on the verge of release 2022-10-01

If you've read my post about local sync, I've talked a lot about the new local sync feature. But one big problem with this is the inability to interact with local files from within the browser. This makes it impossible to sync notes locally on the web version of Fleeting Notes. So I decided it was time to add desktop support for Fleeting Notes. This is no small undertaking and it'll involve overhauling the existing infrastructure within Fleeting Notes. Over the last week, I've been iteratively

I don't like this manual work so I decided to add a better way in Fleeting Notes (FN). When taking Youtube notes in Fleeting Notes, the YT timestam

That being said, if you have another workflow or like a particular workflow, I'd love to hear more about it in the comment section! 1. Don't Process Them! (My Recommendation) My number one recommendation is to NOT process Fleeting Notes within

The Best Browser Extension for Obsidian

A big pain point some people have with Obsidian is the difficulty in capturing content from the web directly into Obsidian. Although there are solutions like Raindrop, Hypothesis, or any note-taking browser extension, it's often tiresome to integrate these web clippings or highlights directly into your vault. To top it off, these browser extensions don't support one of Obsidian's key feature: building connections between notes Fleeting Notes was built ground up with Obsidian in mind. The app s
