Vault Path

There are 2 ways to get the file system path to a vault.

  1. If you are looking to read a note or schema file, or an asset file inside of the vault, you'll want to use VaultUtils.getRelPath. This gives you the path to the folder where the note files and assets are located.
  2. If you are looking to add a meta file into the vault, access the .git inside of the vault etc., then you should use VaultUtils.getRelVaultRootPath. This gives you the path to the root of the vault.

What's the difference?

Both options are identical for vaults other than self contained vaults. The difference is for self contained vaults, where the notes are stored in a subdirectory inside the vault.
