Obsidian Git

Simple plugin that allows you to back up your vault to a remote git repository (e.g. private repo on GitHub). This plugin assumes credentials are set up.

On advantages of backing up your vault with git I suggest reading this amazing article by @tallguyjenks.

This plugin does not work on mobile at the moment See #57 for updates.


See the installation guide for further instructions.


Requirements, tips and tricks, common issues and more can be found in the wiki


  • Automatic vault backup every X minutes
  • Pull changes from remote repository on Obsidian startup
  • Assign hotkeys for pulling/pushing changes to a remote repository
  • Manage different repositories via Git submodules


If you have any kind of feedback or questions, feel free to reach out via GitHub issues or

on Obsidian Discord server.

This plugin was initial developed by denolehov. Since March, it's mainly Vinzent03 who is developing on this plugin.
