Actions URI 1.3.0 was released today.

New stuff

Support for triggering Obsidian commands (#77)

Please see the new route docs for details:

Support for Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, and Yearly Notes (#75)

All of Action UR’s existing /daily-note functionality is now also available for anything supported by the Periodic Notes community plugin! Please see the new route docs for details:

Known issue: At the time of writing, the Periodic Notes plugin seems to have a bug that (for some people) prevents creating a new weekly note on any day other than Sunday. liamcain/obsidian-periodic-notes · #185 · Open weekly note only works on Sunday. Since Actions URI uses the Periodic Notes plugin’s API, this is not something I can fix. Please follow the issue for updates.


  • Actions URI now requires Obsidian 1.3+ .


  • Adds missing return calls to /vault/open and /vault/close. (#76)
  • For some Dataview TABLE queries, the results would be wrapped in an extra array, this has been fixed. (#79)

Glad to see these new routes for command and periodic notes in Actions URI. I’m looking forward to experimenting with them. I’m currently using the note/create route to create periodic notes, except where I use *daily-note/create".

I’m somewhat concerned about the limitation for weekly-note that seems to indicate it might not work when Monday is the first day of the week (which I use). I have Monday identified as first day of week in Liam’s Calendar plugin, but I guess he doesn’t check that. Maybe it has something to do with the difference between ISO and non-ISO week numbers that I had struggled with previously trying to generate the correct week number for my weekly-note file name. I might have to continue using my current Create Weekly Note shortcut in the interim.

However, I will try to replace my current periodic note creation shortcuts with Actions for Obsidian (when this new Actions URI functionality is available for Shortcuts). Thanks for adding these new capabilities.

I have Monday set as well (because anything else is crazy talk :wink:); creating a weekly note using Obsidian’s Command Palette does only work on Sunday for me. YMMV, tho.
