What can this plugin do?


  • Export a block to Readwise.
  • Export a block with a note to Readwise.
  • Export a page to Reader
  • Save an URL to Reader


Slash command: “Export as highlight to Readwise”

You can send the current block as a highlight to Readwise with the slash command “Export as highlight to Readwise” or from the context menu with “Export as highlight to Readwise”.

Create a highlight

The current block will be sent as the highlight and the first child block as the note. When you send the same highlight multiple times, it will only be saved once, because Readwise looks at the author, title, text combination for a highlight. It updates the note when the note is send again later. Formatting is not supported.

Highlights are created in a book with author and title from the plugin settings.

- [highlight or other text]
  - [your note]

Export to Readwise with note by slash command

Create Mastery flash cards

With .qa tag it is possible to create flashcards in Readwise directly from Logseq. Normally highlights are on the line itself and the first child node is sent as a note for the highlight.

With .qa tag you do this as well, but format the note itself in a special way. Start with .qa press Shift+Enter, to add a new line, write your question, Shift+Enter for a new line and add the answer of the flashcard. All combined that will look like this:

- [highlight or other text]
  - .qa

Real example:

- I just found how to create flashcards in Readwise with tags.
    - .qa
      How you can you create flashcards in Readwise from tags?
      With the .qa tag and a specially formatted note.

Command palette: Export Page to Reader

Use the command palette “Export Page to Reader”. When called the plugin will take the author from settings, a fake url (because logseq urls are not accepted), the page title and the content blocks as paragraphs to Reader. The HTML the plugin sends is very simple for now, but can be improved. Please provide feedback about this in Discussions.

Command palette: Save URL to Reader

Use the command palette to “Save URL to Reader” or the block context menu to Save a URL to Reader. This will send the first url in the current block to Reader. Reader will fetch the URL and find the title and author from the page.
