Obsidian is a powerful knowledge base on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files.

I am just found the best (for me) Markdown editor on the planet. Why?

  • it's freeware and opensource
  • it's minimalistic and easy to use
  • combine wysiwyg and plaintext editing
  • support folders, front matter, custom styles,
  • allow quick file open ⌘ + ⇧ + O 😍
