My Obsidian Setup, Part 2: Themes, Mobile Quick Action and Toolbar, and Third-Party Plugins

In the first installment of my new Obsidian series I published last week, I covered the basics of the app to get started with its (many) settings, built-in core plugins, and different types of sync. This week, we’re taking a look at the Obsidian theme I’m using right now, options for customizing command activation on iPhone, and a collection of third-party ‘community’ plugins I’ve been using for the past few months. Let’s jump back in.

The Theme I’m Using (and SF Mono)

I want to cover this one right away since you’re going to notice that screenshots in this story feature a new Obsidian look compared to last week. The theme I’m using right now is called Minimal; it was created by Stephan Ango with the goal of bringing Obsidian closer to Apple’s macOS HIG by using native system fonts, rounded corners for panels and popups, pill-shaped tags, and more. The theme was recently updated for iPhone and iPad, and it is, in my opinion, one of the best looks you can install for Obsidian on Apple platforms at the moment.
