Development workflow

Whenever you make a change to the plugin source code, the plugin needs to be reloaded. You can reload the plugin by quitting Obsidian and starting it again, but that gets tiring quickly.

Reload plugin inside Obsidian#

You can reload the plugin by re-enabling it in the list of installed plugins:

  1. Open Preferences.
  2. Click Community plugins.
  3. Find your plugin under Installed plugins.
  4. Toggle the switch off to disable the plugin.
  5. Toggle the switch on to enable the plugin.

You're now running the updated version of your plugin.

Reload plugin on file changes#

The Hot-Reload plugin reloads your plugin whenever the source code changes.
