A VIM Plugin to make a daily note in the obsidian vault
By default it creates a Daily folder inside the vault if it does not exist
and then creates a empty daily note with a name: YYYY-MM-DD.md

By default it gets the path of the first vault from Obsidian preferences
You can override this by setting $OBSIDIAN_PATH environment variable or with options


g:vault_path = path for your obsidian vault (optional)

g:daily_folder = 'Daily' path for the daily notes inside the vault

g:date_format = '%Y-%m-%d' format for the date, default YYYY-MM-DD

g:use_daily_folder = 1 use the above folder instead of direct path

g:use_wsl = 0 put this to 1 if you are running vim on wsl on windows


command Dailynote       create and open a new note

command Dailynotebuffer create and open daily note on buffer

command Removenote      remove note from the disk
