nvALT Reminders

Brett Terpstra strikes again:

Inspired by Evernote, I whipped up a little script to find “@reminder” tags with date parameters in nvALT notes (or any folder of text files). It can generate notifications or send HTML emails at the specified time. It’s just for fun right now, but I thought I’d put it out there to see if anyone had any ideas for it.

I haven’t tried this out yet, but I most certainly will be doing so in very short order. This pushes every nerdy button (except this one) I’ve got.

Here’s the script on GitHub, by the way.

UPDATE, June 2, 2013 1:10 PM:

Brett has already released an updated script which makes a few refinements, including the ability to send tagged items straight into Reminders.app.

FoldingText Is Badass

I admit when I first heard about FoldingText (via Brett Terpstra, I believe), I had no idea why it might be something I’d want to use. On the surface it’s a Markdown editor with foldable headers, but underneath it’s a lot more than that. You can easily drop to-do lists and timers into your document using plain-text only–in other words, you type “todo.timer” on one line, hit return, type “write for 15 minutes,” and bingo, you have a timer.

It’s still in beta, but I recommend it anyway. It’s probably the best, most efficient productivity app I’ve ever tried. If you use a Mac and find it useful to organize your work, go grab FoldingText.
