About

I created this tool that will export your DayOne journal entries into individual jpeg files with the entry text as the caption metadata of the jpegs.

I use this export to build a photo book in Lightroom (using the Book Module). Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to maintain formatting of the entries (newlines, boldness, etc) so you'll have to manually go into each entry on Lightroom and fix the formats.

Installation

  1. Clone this repo
  2. gem install bundler (if you don't already have it)
  3. bundle install

Usage Examples

  • rake (export the last 30 days)
  • rake from=2014-01-01 to=2014-12-31 (export 2014)
  • rake include='Tag1,Tag2' exclude='Tag3'

from, to, include, and exclude can all be used together.
