Obsidian and Kanban
Check this out:
You can drag and drop between categories. When you put a task in the Done category, you can check it off as done.
Did I mention, that this was all in a text editor? In plain text? Using Markdown?
How Is This Voodoo Possible?
This is possible through a community plug-in called mgmeyers/obsidian-kanban: Create markdown-backed Kanban boards in Obsidian.. Thank you Mr. Meyers.
That is it. I am showing you the basic implementation of it. You can add dates and build a task manager in it with as much detail as you like.
I found an interesting theme for Obsidian, Braweria/Spectrum: Spectrum is an Obsidian theme.. This has a dedicated section on designing your Kanban boards with CSS. I borrowed from that to include it in the Solarized theme I am using. The Spectrum theme is beautiful and I switch between Solarized and Spectrum depending on my mood. Thank you Ms. Wiktoria Mielcarek.
In a move, I cannot explain, I have moved all of my writing and note-taking to Obsidian. I wanted the challenge of learning something new and exploring a new program seemed to be the right way to go about that.
Obsidian is at the core a Markdown focused text editor. That is it. But with a published API for plug-ins, developers are adding amazing features to the core program. This Kanban plug-in is one example of that. I am blown away by this. I can’t wait to see what other things I discover.
