There exists Obsidian publish but this service is gated by a paywall and is geared towards content creators. Sometimes we want to share a note (+ all the links within the note) without the hassle of setting up a website or paying a monthly fee. Some example use cases include:

  • explaining a concept to a friend
  • sharing notes for a particular class
  • showcasing the coolness of your connected notes!
