ChatGPT has taken the world by storm. Its usefulness is unmatched especially when it comes to learning and brainstorming.

With over 100 million users and unparalleled usefulness, it has been the hottest topic for a few months.

In this article, I’m excited to talk about a new way to integrate ChatGPT inside Obsidian(our favorite tool).

Until now, integrating ChatGPT in Obsidian has been a challenge. While there were some tools available like Text Generator, Ava, ChatGPT MD, GPT-3 Notes, and more, they lacked the full integration and the ease of use that ChatGPT offers.

But with the plugins that we’ll discuss in this article, you can get the ChatGPT interface and experience directly within Obsidian.

With these plugins, you’ll no longer have to switch between Obsidian and your web browser to work with ChatGPT. This will greatly improve your workflow and productivity, helping you stay on track and focused.

Plus, it’s just more fun to use Obsidian when everything is in one place.

So if you are ready to take your Obsidian experience to the next level, let’s dive in.

Obsidian Co-Pilot

The plugin is currently in beta. It is not available in the plugin library. Therefore you will have to install it manually.

Here’s how you can install it manually:

  • Go to the latest release section in GitHub
  • Download main.js, manifest.json, and styles.css files
  • Move them inside your vault under .obsidian/plugins/co-pilot/
  • Enable the plugin through settings>community plugins

How to Setup Obsidian Co-pilot

The first thing you need to do is get API keys from OpenAI. You probably already have an OpenAI account. So all you need to do is go to the API page and generate new API Keys and add it to the plugin’s options.
