minchin.jrnl version 7.1 Documentation¶
You can use it to easily create, search, and view journal entries. Journals are stored as human-readable plain text, and can also be encrypted using AES encryption.
To get help, submit an issue on Github.
In a Nutshell¶
To make a new entry, just enter
jrnl yesterday: Called in sick. Used the time to clean the house and write my book.
yesterday: is interpreted by
minchin.jrnl as a timestamp. Everything
until the first sentence ending (either
!) is interpreted
as the title, and the rest as the body. In your journal file, the result will
look like this:
[2012-03-29 09:00] Called in sick. Used the time to clean the house and write my book.
If you just call
jrnl, you will be prompted to compose your entry - but you
can also configure minchin.jrnl to use your external editor.
pip install minchin.jrnl
