# Navigating Zettelkasten links in Marked 2

Has anyone found a way to get Marked 2 to navigate wikilinks? E.g. I would like to be able to view a note from my Zettelkasten in Marked, click a link referencing another note, and have Marked open that note.

• I haven't implemented this, but I think your best bet is (a) a pre-processor that replaces wiki links with Markdown links, or (b) JavaScript to achieve a similar effect but in the template/output. You can use thearchive://match/<WIKI LINK HERE> to simulate clicking a wiki link from outside of the app.

• Hi there,

I do this using a preprocessor, just as @ctietze suggests.

Try the following ruby script, which strips the wiki link syntax, and adds the Markdown links. I had some help from the Marked developer when figuring this out, so credit goes to Brett Terpstra for this:

#!/usr/bin/ruby
require 'uri'

def class_exists?(class_name)
klass = Module.const_get(class_name)
return klass.is_a?(Class)
rescue NameError
return false
end

if class_exists? 'Encoding'
Encoding.default_external = Encoding::UTF_8 if Encoding.respond_to?('default_external')
Encoding.default_internal = Encoding::UTF_8 if Encoding.respond_to?('default_internal')
end

begin
rescue
end

input.gsub!(/$\[(.*?)$\]/) do |m|
match = Regexp.last_match
"[#{match[1]}](thearchive://match/#{URI.escape(match[1])}.txt)"
end

print input


Hope it helps!

• Just to add, you won’t need the .txt here! A relic from a prior version…

Amazing! Thanks for the script - It works
