Meta Bind Docs

Meta Bind is a plugin for Obsidian to make your notes interactive!

Meta Bind allows you to create input fields, metadata displays (view fields), and buttons. Input and view fields can bind to frontmatter properties, which keeps them in sync those frontmatter properties, allowing you to view and edit your frontmatter properties inside your notes.

For example, you can create a toggle inside your note, that is bound to a frontmatter property named done, with this simple inline code block INPUT[toggle:done]. When you click the toggle, the done property will switch between true and false.


  • Input Fields - Input and edit frontmatter properties from anywhere inside your notes. Properties will update in real time.
  • View Fields - Display frontmatter properties inside your notes. The displayed value will update in real time when the properties displayed change.
  • Buttons - Create buttons inside your notes that can trigger actions on click. A spiritual successor to the discontinued Buttons Plugin.
  • Meta Bind Embed - Seamlessly embed a note inside another note. The embedded note will be rendered as if it was part of the note it is embedded in.

Getting Started

First you will need to install the plugin from the Community Plugins tab in Obsidian’s settings. You can find various guides on how to use the plugin under the Guides section in the sidebar.

If you want to see all possible input fields in actions, you can run the Open Meta Bind Playground command inside Obsidian. If you are looking for examples, you can explore the example vault which I use for testing.
