Getting Started

Ed, our fellow Dendrologist, has made a fantastic getting started video to help folks install and setup Dendron.


Dendron can be installed as a vscode plugin. If you don't already have VSCode, you can download it here.

After you have downloaded the plugin, following the instructions to create your first workspace.

  1. With VSCode in focus, launch the command bar:

This lets you execute commands inside vscode

  • Linux: Ctrl+Shift+P
  • macOS: Cmd+Shift+P
  • Windows: Ctrl+Shift+P

  1. Paste the following command and press Enter:
> Dendron: Initialize Workspace
  1. Select a folder that will act as the root of your dendron workspace.

Initialize workspace

When the workspace opens, it will show dialogue to install the recommended extensions. Though not required, these extensions add all the non-core features of Dendron like wiki links and tagging support.
