Day One Alfred Tools
What it needs
At this point, this Alfred Workflow requires:
- The Day One CLI
- That you're using Safari or Chrome (FF looks like a no-go at the present moment)
(It used to require a Ruby script by Bret Terpstra but I decided the ease of installation beat out his date logic. I assume most people weren't using it.)
When you first import it, change, if you'd like, the variables in the
browser: Which browser you want to use. "Safari" or "Chrome". Safari is default.
prefix: What comes before a link. Default is
separator: What separates a link and a comment. Default is

What it does
loglogs to Day One.
lw!-- "log web" -- log the frontmost website and title as a link.
lw!creates a starred entry.
lw! commentdo the same, but with a comment.
lwq!create an entry with a link and the text on the clipboard as a quote.

- Added support for Chrome and returned the default formatting options to normal.
- Switched over to just use the Day One CLI. I imagine this will be about three times easier to get set up and doesn't lose much functionality.
- Added a notification letting using know that the script ran successfully. Requested here.
lwq!, which add a link and any text in your clipboard as a quote.
- Added an easier way to change the text separating the link and comment. Requested here.
