You can set a Template folder location to tell Templater to only check this folder for templates.

You can set a timeout for your system commands with the Timeout option. A system command that takes longer than what you defined will be canceled and considered as a failure.

You can set Templater to be triggered on new file creation. It will listen for the new file creation event and replace every command it finds in the new file's content.

This makes Templater compatible with other plugins like the Daily note core plugin, Calendar plugin, Review plugin, Note refactor plugin, ...

If this setting is enabled, you can specify an "Empty File Template", which is a template that will automatically be added to newly created file.


This can be dangerous if you create new files with unknown / unsafe content on creation. Make sure that every new file's content is safe on creation.

You can enable system commands. This allows you to create user functions linked to system commands.


It can be dangerous to execute arbitrary system commands from untrusted sources. Only run system commands that you understand, from trusted sources.
