I am following Dave’s writing about the integration of Little Outliner with apps like Obsidian and Logseq.

First off, there is an existing standard for using double brackets, it is an internal wiki link and the expected action is that it automatically links to a page that exists within the app hosting and editing the content. Usually what is between the double square brackets is the name of the page. If the page already exists, clicking the link loads that page in the app. If the page does not already exist, clicking the link creates a new page with that title in which one can then edit.

One of the things to wrangle through is the difference between navigating through these pages within the app and publishing the content to a web server or a file format like PDF.

For example, when I use Obsidian, I can control-click a wiki link and that opens the associated page, but if I publish that source page to a PDF, you see the brackets but there is no link.
