Actions URI

Obsidian natively supports a custom URI protocol obsidian:// which can trigger various actions within the app. This is commonly used on macOS and mobile apps for automation and cross-app workflows.

This plugin adds new x-callback-url endpoints to Obsidian so that external sources can better interact with an Obsidian instance by making GET requests to a obsidian://actions-uri/* URL. All new routes support x-success and x-error parameters as a way of communicating back to the sender.

It’s a clean, somewhat super-charged addition to Obsidian’s own URI scheme.
