Obsidian Showcases

Obsidian Showcases: Canvas Dashboard, Homepage, Book Tracker, & More

Showcases to inspire your obsidian journey

Obsidian is a blank Canvas.

You are free to choose your style and workflow. While this flexibility offers endless possibilities, it can sometimes leave newcomers feeling overwhelmed by choice.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see what and how other users are using the app?

That’s precisely the inspiration behind this article.

In this edition of Obsidian showcases, I will share some dashboards and workflows used by the Obsidian users.

All of these showcases are collected from the Obsidian Discord group.
