Hi, wondering about the following feature or plugin:
Ability to track relative links between Inkdrop documents.
- note “Parent”, and
- note: “Child”
which are linked (“Copy Note Link”) such that the Child link is pasted into the Parent note.
There is no way of knowing in review mode that the link is internal, ie to another note in Inkdrop,
or external, ie: to an outside link.
There is no way for Child note to know that it’s being referenced by Parent note.
Deleting Child leaves the link in the Parent to the now deleted Child,
with no warning that Child has been deleted (and no warning before deleting Child).
The Child link in the Parent note now points to nothing.
Therefore I propose the following features (or Plugin):
a) ability to know that a link is internal to Inkdrop
- currently I do this manually by prepending “Ink:” to the child link,
this could be done automatically.
b) ability to know which other documents have a link to this document.
- ie: link-back
- for example at the top of the Child note there could be a list of the Parent links which link to this document.
c) ability to be notified prior to deleted a linked note (Child) .
This could be a warning that this note is linked to by the following notes.
d) ability for a note to list the internal notes that it links to (forward links)
If this feature is not likely to be on the roadmap, and there is significant community interest, I’d be willing to make a plugin with this functionality (provided that’s doable in a plugin).
