Does Blot handle [[wikilinks]]?

I plan on testing this myself later, but while I'm away from my desk... Can Blot handle wikilinks? It would make it a great companion for e.g. Obsidian.

Not yet, but this is a planned and popularly requested feature. I will post an update here when wikilinks are ready. Please contact us if you would like an email notification as well.

Wikilinks-support is ready!

You can now turn on Convert Wikilinks into links under the Typography section of the services page of your dashboard.

Please note: at the moment, Blot will resolve the path to the linked file based on the conventions Obsidian uses when you have the New link format setting on Relative path to file. I eventually plan to support other methods – please contact support with suggestions if your method isn't working.

As always, please let me know if you have any feedback, thoughts or questions.

What does this mean? I quickly checked Obsidians web site and all I found was that I should type [[ and the select the page, but I didn't see anything about the conventions used. Is Blot using relative path, absolute, something else?

I just added documentation on how to use wikilinks with Blot – please let me know if you have any questions about this

Is there a way to have [[Wikilinks]] look different¹ to hyperlinks that redirect away from the blot site?


¹ "Look different" could be that a [[wikilink] is a different colour to an external link, or that external links are marked with a small arrow noting they direct readers away from the site.
