The latest release of Obsidian is still very basic, but it does now allow you to do some basic folding in Markdown. Off by default, but can be enabled via plugins, you can fold Markdown headers and lists.

Version 0.5.0 was still a bit hard to use, but 0.5.1 which just came out feels pretty solid if anyone has been holding off giving Obsidian a try. Personally, I still need to wait to see how the editor evolves. It works, but I wouldn’t say that using it “sparks joy” yet. Hopefully that will come.

“sparks joy” – that’s a lovely phrase, perfectly describing the thrill felt by a veteran CRIMPer when s/he encounters an app that is a genuine pleasure to use! UX is still vastly underestimated by many programmers. If you want your users to use your app every day, for hours at a time, focus on UI/UX (no matter how many clever/powerful features you’ve incorporated into your app).

It’s a pleasure to watch NotePlan (originally a singularly uninspiring UX) develop into a well-rounded app that “sparks joy”. Mind you, there are one or two bugs in the very latest version (which does the Typora thing of instantly converting Markdown into a rich-text lookalike). But it still sparks joy!

To be clear—folding in Obsidian is not persistent.  Close the document or app and return later and the folding (at the heading level) is gone.  It’s because there’s nothing in the raw plain text file behind the scenes in Obsidian that can retain folding knowledge—it’s not part of any “standard” markdown.

0.52 just came out, and someone already posted a video walkthrough.
