[DONE] Deep Linking or URL Scheme / Allow linking to Logseq pages from outside the app

So far I don’t know anything about URI scheme for Logseq :frowning:
This is still the place where Obsidian is superior than Logseq, and what hold me from full switch

You could scopy/refrence pages/bullets internally in Logseq or the markdown files on your disc to the external app

Even if I had the file path, you can’t open MD files in Logseq (or set it as the default app).

As full-featured as this app is, I’m puzzled why there is no way to get a link to a block or page. Hopefully, this is something they can address soon (I don’t see it on the roadmap).

Related post here! Allow linking to Logseq pages from outside the app

Hook is a mac app that allows for linking between files and apps
(for example I could make link to pdf and put into markdown note, clicking the link will open pdf in specific app)
Hook for working need an API.

Hook needs to be able to get the name of your app’s current resource, and a URL/ID for it. It needs to be able to open this resource using that URL/ID. We do not expect Hook to be able to get the name or URL/ID of an unsaved document.
You just need to provide the API. It could be via x-callback-url, AppleScript / JavaScript, a command line interface or something else that is generally available.

There already exist a similar feature request of the Hook users.

+1 for this. I use Hook a lot and it would be awesome to have it work with Logseq

Yes this is what I meant (Deep linking) I don’t mark it as solved, but the discussion may be merged

The founder of Logseq said that the deep linking will be available in the near future. Looking forward to it!

Any news about that ?

Actually this feature would be very usefull. I could e.g. link from Zotero and from Anki back to the corresponding logseq page. Any news on the state of this feature?
