Lorenzo of 24 Empty Bits has adapted my means of writing DayOne entries from directly within Drafts to his own needs, in a way which I thought my readers might find interesting. Rather than requiring an always-on Mac1, as my original solution does, Lorenzo’s version uses an AppleScript to send new entries into DayOne when a Mac wakes or is booted–thus preserving the proper timestamps for entries written while the Mac wasn’t running.
I’m sure this is a welcome hack for those who only have laptops. Thanks, Lorenzo.
- Well, not really, but it is true that the timestamps on entries written while your Mac is asleep will be wrong with my version. ↩
