In 🌱 Obsidian, we can show random quotes in daily notes (or in any note) from your quote collections with the help of Dice Roller plugin.
What you need:
- Dice Roller pluggin for Obsidian.
- A note with all your beloved quotes. Let's name it
Quote Collections.mdEvery quote should be separated by a break line.
Dice Roller helps us to pull a random block from a note. But it only shows the result on the Reading view. Unfortunately, this is the view I'm always into writing, and I rarely use Reading mode.
So we need to do one more step to see the quote in the Edit mode.
The idea is to create a new note to query quotes with Dice Roller. Then embed this file into your daily note, and embed notes will show as a Reading mode.
This is the result:
This is how to do it:
- I created a new note called
Random quote query.md. In this file, I put a line to query random quote
dice: [[Quote collections]]
- In your daily note file, embed this file by using
![[Random quote query]]
From now, every time you create a new daily note, it will show you a random quote in your Edit view.
