QOwnNotes command-line snippet manager
You can use the QOwnNotes command-line snippet manager to execute command snippets stored in notes in QOwnNotes from the command line.
You can use notes with a special tag (
commands by default) to store command snippets, which you can
execute from the command-line snippet manager.
For more information on how to add commands and configuration please see Command-line Snippet Manager.
The QOwnNotes command-line snippet manager is based on the wonderful pet CLI Snippet Manager.
