This workflow will convert a single CSV file into separate, interlinked Obsidian notes on macOS using the built-in Shortcuts app, my app Actions for Obsidian, and Sindre Sorhus’es excellent Actions app (no relation).
The example data is a Goodreads book export, and the result is many book notes, many author notes, many “publishing year” notes, and links between them.
