Getting Started with Obsidian

Build a Second Brain

A second brain, for you, forever. Obsidian is a powerful knowledge base that works on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files.

What's a second brain?

What's a knowledge base?


  • A local folder: It's your data, on your computer, not locked away on a third-party server.
  • Plain Text: That will last forever.
  • Markdown: Widely supported both on the web and off. Markdown is a lightweight formatting syntax that play's nicely with plain text files.
