Why? Why not?

Tired of opening nano on your own?

Forget if you like headings or italics for your standup section titles?

Stuck in that weird VISUAL MODE in vim where you can't right-click copy and paste your notes into chat? Looking like a tool, because you aren't using the right ones.

Well, no more.

standup-notes to the rescue.

Brag hard about your $EDITOR selection

Set your $EDITOR environment variable (in your .bashrc) to tell standup-notes and your friends,

"Yo playa', I use X to edit my files. Like a boss!"

Only chumps right-click to Copy and Paste

You heard me. And I know you're no chump. Use standup-notes to seamlessly --copy-today's notes and by ready for that meeting on the fly. So fly.

I have kids. I don't sleep. My brain is basically just scrambled eggs. I use templates.

Get to the point. I can't remember what I like (italics vs. headings). I just do what my template tells me.

Don't waste time with that cookie cutter garbagio. Get straight to the content. Leave the boilerplate to the tool.
