This plugin is made for data quality enthusiasts!

Access and manage the metadata of your notes in Obsidian.


In Obsidian, metadatas are information defined in Yaml syntax in the front matter section of a note, those metadata are named properties. Metadata are very convenient to categorize notes and make queries to find them. Some plugins have leveraged metadata to make advanced queries against your vault, such as Dataview. Dataview has also introduce a new syntax to define metadata anywhere in a note (not only in frontmatter but also in the body of the note) with the syntax fieldName::value

Metadata Menu adds context menu items to modifiy target note's frontmatter fields and "inline fields" (dataview syntax) by right-clicking on the link, accessing options in the command palette, clicking a dedicated button appearing next to the note in several places or within dataview tables.

You can define preset types and values for those fields globally in the plugin's settings or on a file-by-file basis thanks to fileClass definition

It also enables frontmatter of inline-field autocompletion with suggested values based on preset values.
