Posted by agiletortoise, Last update 8 months ago - Unlisted

Now supports targeting a specific list by including “# List Name” as the first line of the draft.

Send each line of the draft to Things as a separate todo.

Defaults to creating todos in the Things Inbox. To target a specific list, use “# List Name” in the first line of the draft. The list name must match an existing list in Things, or the todos will be created in the Inbox.

    let list = "Inbox"
    if (lines[0].startsWith("#")) {
    	let newList = lines.shift() // remove first line

    	newList = newList.trim()
    	list = newList
    // loop over lines, adding non-blank lines as todos
    for (line of lines) {
    	let trimmedLine = line.trim() // remove whitespace
    	if (trimmedLine.length == 0) { // skip blank lines
    	let todo = TJSTodo.create()
