A simple digital notebook using Markdown.

# Tidynotes

A script to generate a notebook in Markdown. The basic setup is designed around how I take digital notes but should be fairly hackable. I use it to make a single file per day that can then be merged into a single hmtl export or an export for each project I'm working on.

Inside each note:

• There's a single level 1 heading that is the name of the note (generally the day it covers),
• Each project goes under a level 2 heading,
• Level 4 & 5 headings are optional sub-divisions within those tasks,

The script is designed to be called from the command-line. It takes a directory passed as a positional argument and a number of flags:

• -g/--generate_note generates a note for the current day,
• -s/--make_series generates notes for n days in the future,
• -d/--make_day generates notes a day specified as a text value,
• -i/--initialise_notebook generates a blank notebook in the directory,
• -r/--render_all merges all markdown files and renders them into a single html output,
• -c/--clean_headings runs a simple heading cleanup routine and runs user-set regex over all notes,
• -e/--extract_project extracts and renders the notes for a specific project,
• -a/--extract_all extracts and renders the notes for all projects,

The script also allows for a few additional features (mainly during cleanup):

• Storing a list of all projects / tasks. This is mainly to allow corrections of misspellings etc.
• A list of regex corrections. The default set:
• Newline at the end of each file,
• Homogenises quote marks (e.g. ’ to '),
