Readwise + Obsidian-which plugin?

Before I’m told :grinning: I know I can (and probably will) post this question in the Obsidian forum. But, I find MPUs forum so helpful, that I like to begin here.

I’ve decided to give Readwise a 30 day trial in connection with Obsidian. When I searched for the Obsidian Readwise community plugin, I found two.

Which is the best to use? I assume the Readwise Community plugin but I thought I’d check before installing. Thanks!

Release notes can be helpful.


In addition to this plugin [the Readwise Community Plugin], there is also another Readwise community plugin for Obsidian named Readwise Mirror, which can be found at: GitHub - jsonMartin/readwise-mirror. Both plugins exist for different use cases, so please read below to determine which best suits your needs.

  • Download the Readwise Mirror plugin if you want to mirror your entire Readwise Library into Obsidian and sync modifications to previous highlights

  • Download this plugin [the Readwise Community Plugin] to import highlights (new highlights only for now) to your library with full control over the ability to modify and format your notes

Readwise is making their own official plugin which is currently in beta. You can write their support and they’ll help you get connected to it. :slight_smile:


Thanks @anon41602260 and @kennonb, much appreciated. I noticed that in my Readwise account that only four books (out of hundreds) synced and downloaded highlights. I’m assuming (I emailed the developers) that that is a limit of the trial version. I don’t see the limited mentioned but I probably just missed it.

I write Readwise support for access to the beta.

Thanks again!
