clip-journal

clip-journal

Seamlessly record your activities in a journal while you work, by making a copy of anything in the system clipboard.

Install

npm i -g electron
npm i -g clip-journal

Usage

You can start a journal anywhere. Just provide the path to a markdown file (it will be created if it doesn't already exist)

mkdir my-journal
clip my-journal/index.md

Now whenever you copy some text to the clipboard it will be appended to index.md, and if you copy an image it will be saved to the directory and embedded in the markdown file.

Tip for OSX users: Cmd-Ctrl-Shift-4 saves a screenshot to the clipboard rather than to a file

Live preview

You might also like to use something like vmd to get a live preview of the journal:

vmd index.md
