Quartz supports the same Admonition-callout syntax as Obsidian.

This includes

  • 12 Distinct callout types (each with several aliases)
  • Collapsable callouts
> [!info] Title
> 
> This is a callout!

See documentation on supported types and syntax here.

Warning

Wondering why callouts may not be showing up even if you have them enabled? You may need to reorder your plugins so that ObsidianFlavoredMarkdown is after SyntaxHighlighting.

Customization

The callouts are a functionality of the ObsidianFlavoredMarkdown plugin. See the plugin page for how to enable or disable them.

You can edit the icons by customizing quartz/styles/callouts.scss.

Add custom callouts

By default, custom callouts are handled by applying the note style. To make fancy ones, you have to add these lines to custom.scss.

.callout {
  &[data-callout="custom"] {
    --color: #customcolor;
    --border: #custombordercolor;
    --bg: #custombg;
    --callout-icon: url("data:image/svg+xml; utf8, <custom formatted svg>"); //SVG icon code
  }
}

Warning

Don’t forget to ensure that the SVG is URL encoded before putting it in the CSS. You can use tools like this one to help you do that.
