Write allows you to create and edit journal entries directly from the command line using your favorite text editors like vim, Sublime Text, TextMate, and way more. Each entry is automatically named with today's date, so you can just focus on what's important, that is, write!


$ write

Just write. It's embarrassingly simple.


  1. Clone it

    git clone

  2. Open and edit your default editor and save path

    alias EDITOR="vi"


  3. Optional but recommended aliasing in your .profile

    alias write=". ~/write-cli/"

You can’t perform that action at this time.
