Obsidian is the first non-outliner in this benchmark and is based on Markdown files stored in local folders. The benchmark results are astonishing.
Obsidian does have support for block references though, it just doesn't create them by default (i.e. always). So I wonder if there is a way to sort of simulate the burden that the other apps are dealing with by modifying your .md test files *just* for Obsidian to include block references on every, er, "paragraph" I guess it'd be. You know what I mean? 🤔
I have 20,000 notes with lots of attachments and have found that renaming the top level folder breaks obsidian. It also cannot use the knowledge graph without just breaking. I have to force quit and then it has to re-index everything.
I'm already an adoring user of Obsidian, but reading this and the above comments made me even happier. Thanks!
