# How do I install and configure OBSIDIAN with the relevant plug-ins?

I’ve tried logseq before, but it’s hard to sync across devices, and then I was planted on Obsidian, and I feel it works much better than logseq these days. I’ve been thinking about how to reasonably plan the migration of tag and wiznote notes, though I don’t think it can completely replace wiznote. this is still more suitable for plain text records, and less friendly to files and other synchronization.

# Sync

## Plugin sync: Self-hosted LiveSync

Here I choose the better cross-device synchronization Self-hosted LiveSync

### Server setup couchdb

• Install the base environment docker

• Generate configuration file local.ini

vim local.ini
### The contents are as follows

[couchdb]
single_node=true

[chttpd]
require_valid_user = true

[chttpd_auth]
require_valid_user = true
authentication_redirect = /_utils/session.html

[httpd]
WWW-Authenticate = Basic realm="couchdb"
enable_cors = true

[cors]
origins = app://obsidian.md,capacitor://localhost,http://localhost
credentials = true
headers = accept, authorization, content-type, origin, referer
methods = GET, PUT, POST, HEAD, DELETE
max_age = 3600

• Start
docker run -d --name obsidian --restart always -e COUCHDB_USER=admin -e COUCHDB_PASSWORD=passwd -v /home/obsidian/local.ini:/opt/couchdb/etc/ local.ini -p 5984:5984 couchdb

• Connection configuration

Remember to click Test to test after the configuration is done, the pit I stepped in here is that I didn’t fill in the DataBase name, which led to an error all the time. Each device keeps the information on the line.

I’ve stepped in a hole here because I didn’t fill in the DataBase name.

• Synchronization settings reference, I did not choose LiveSync here, feel a little problem in the conflict

# Other plug-ins recommended

## MindMap

• Brain map generation, the only thing that is a bit of a gripe here is the need to set shortcuts to use, did not find other methods. At the same time the text file format requirements are very high, a slight error will not be generated.

• The software actually has a sidebar by default, and I personally feel that his preview is still pretty cool.

## Calendar

• A calendar table, it depends on personal preference. I have a daily diary here to get a TODO, not finished in the calendar table can be seen (the hollow point below), although it is not too big.
