Get current file content in Obsidian

If you are creating a plugin for Obsidian, and you want to get the currently opened file/note and its content, use this code…

const noteFile = this.app.workspace.getActiveFile(); // Currently Open Note
if(!noteFile.name) return; // Nothing Open

// Read the currently open note file. We are reading it off the HDD - we are NOT accessing the editor to do this.
let text = await this.app.vault.read(noteFile);
