My Obsidian Setup, Part 7: A YouTube Watch-Later System, Powered by Shortcuts and Dataview

In last week’s issue of MacStories Weekly, I explained how I turned my Dashboard note into a richer, more interactive hub thanks to Dataview snippets displayed as cards, which show me a grid of links I’ve recently saved, plus a collection of recently modified notes. As I covered last week, the cards displayed in my Dashboard are an alternative look for a Dataview table made possible by Minimal Theme; those cards feature an interactive ‘Mark as Done’ button that takes advantage of the Buttons and MetaEdit plugins to change each linked note’s status from new to done.

It’s been fun watching members of our Discord as well as the Obsidian forums tweak and adapt my setup to their needs, so this week I want to share something else I’ve built with the same system that has fundamentally changed my Obsidian workflow: a watch-later system for YouTube videos powered by Shortcuts, Markdown files, and, of course, Dataview.
