Log your Mastodon toots to DayOne

Project description


Journal your toots to DayOne

Take all your toots and make a DayOne journal entry.

This saves the last seen toot id so subsequent runs will only show all the toots since then. If you miss a day of running this it, it will back fill up to the pagination limit.


  1. Ensure you have at least Python 3.7 on your Mac
    • homebrew makes this easy with brew install python
  2. Install the DayOne Command Line Interface
  3. Install tootlogger with python3 -m pip install tootlogger


You will need to manually generate your access token and create a config file

  1. Log into your mastodon instance
  2. go to /settings/applications and create the new app
    • read is the only checkbox needed
  3. Note down the access_token
  4. Repeat this for all accounts you want to log
  5. Create a config file like the example below (or in this repo) in one of two places
    1. $HOME/.tootlogger.toml
    2. tootlogger.toml in the local directory you run the command from

Config file

instance = ""
access_token = "really big string"
["cool account @"]
instance = ""
access_token = "different big string"


  1. run tootlogger to log all of your toots to DayOne
  2. Set up tootlogger to run daily or whenever you toot enough
