Backlinks are important to me, but finding the backlink is... not trivial.
It seems fair to have
[[ begin auto-completing titles of notes. Once again vscode-markdown-notes can likely help here.
I was able to accomplish this without too much effort by Building an extension.
Unsure if I'd like to backlink with
Titles should probably be unique, right? Will that cause issue?
I'm thinking when writing on the web, I'll want to hit
[[ and autocomplete with a title.
...Why not both?
I'm impressed how easily it is to author vscode extensions.
Additionally, I can create a new note by entering the title like so:
[[My new note]], and right-clicking and selecting "New note from selection." Streamlines the process a bit.
The sample extensions allow you to run and debug them in a new Extension Development Host window. I loaded mine with debugger statements as I used the extension with these very notes.
Packaging the extension involved typing
vsce package in the extension directory, then loading the subsequent
vsix file in VSCode.
