Today is a quick explainer on how to use Roam Research’s new feature called templates.
Its really good if you have a dialy prompt or for metadata.
You used to have to create your own page and reference it.
They just released it on December 30th.
Jump into roam and open roam/templates as it’s own page. This is very similar to the roam/css page when in use for themes.
Here is the email from the founder:
As you can see that you’re just referencing whatever you put into the roam templating page. This is super similar to using a text expander.
All you need to do is go to
roam/templates, and type in whatever it is that you want to use as a prompt.
Next all you need to do is press
;; to bring up all the triggers for templates. As you can see it auto suggests the templates that you have.
- Go to roam/templates
- Create a block for whatever you want to use as a template
- Reference the template on any page using
It’s amazing to see how quickly Roam Research iterates. Thats got to be a great way they built community.
