Add commands to import web articles directly into Roam


In the Roam Command Palette, enter Import Article into Roam. There will be a dialog with a text input where you paste in the article's URL. Then, you could hit the IMPORT button and the contents of the article will be imported into your Roam DB!

The extension is making it's best guess on what content from the link is considered the article and what isn't. To help improve the extension over time, send article links that did not quite format correctly to

If there is already an article link in a block, you could use the ALT+SHIFT+I or the OPT+SHIFT+I keyboard shortcut to automatically import the article from the link.

The overlay supports an "Indent Under Header" option. When checked, this will paste contents as children of each header in the article.

This extension is also integrated with Smart Blocks! If you have both this extension and Roam42 installed, there will be a <%ARTICLE:[link]%> command available. Replace [link] with the desired url that you'd like to import. The command will automatically run the article import logic and paste the contents in the blocks before continuing with the rest of the workflow.
