We're hiring at Dendron!

Work is going on for last weeks CROP (Create Index Note). Because this is a more involved feature, we've created an RFC to discuss the implementation details. Please leave any feedback in this github discussion

Seed Commands

Seed Commands now available within the extension. You can add seeds to your workspace with the Dendron: Seed Add command, which was previously only available in the CLI.

Seed Add

Add a seed (Private) to your current workspace.

Seed Remove

Remove a seed (Private) from your current workspace.

Better Lookup

We are splitting up the Lookup command into two separate commands: Lookup Note and Lookup Schema. There's been a lot of confusion that has come from overloading the Lookup command which is now deprecated and will removed in a future release.

Besides for the split, Lookup Note should be significantly faster for large workspaces. Previously you might have noticed a lag when creating a new note in these cases. It also comes with a the new vaultSelection modifier that lets you prompt for a vault when creating a new note.


  • Google Docs Pod will now prompt users to confirm overwriting of a document before running with the confirmOverwrite configuration.
  • When choosing between vaults (for example, picking which vault to put a note in), the vaults will now show by the vault name instead of the vault path.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where wikilinks were not getting highlighted
  • Fixed an issue with the doctor command's regenerate note ID feature
  • Fixed broken links in the extension readme
  • Add Vault command in the CLI will now properly modify your workspace file
