Action Group

Zettelkasten

Posted by @evantravers, Last update 6 months ago

I wanted to generate “zettelkasten” style notes from Drafts, and I wanted to follow a pattern that uses multimarkdown frontmatter/metadata.

This Action Group has a “hidden” action that has a Script Action to be included by other Actions… just to make the process of manipulating MMD metadata easier.

You will definitely need to change the path that Save puts files in your Dropbox.

The booknote actions are basically an example of how you could use the library to automate more complex actions. It assumes the presence of some Workspaces and template files that won’t be present in your system.

The idea of the “Booknote” is a hub note that stores links of all the zettels that you link using “Link to Book” together.

I wrote about my particular implementation of it on my blog.
