Tags to Hashtags

Posted by montchr, Last update 7 months ago

Converts Drafts tags to hashtags and appends them to the content if the
hashtags aren’t already present.

Has the same single-word hashtag limitation as similar scripts. Any Drafts
tags containing spaces will be converted to a hashtag with no spaces. Why
would you want a hashtag with spaces anyway?

Basically does the opposite of @derekvan’s “Tag drafts by hashtag” http://actions.getdrafts.com/a/1Q7

Based on @kjaymiller’s “Add Hashtags from Inside of Draft” action http://actions.getdrafts.com/a/1ME
