As seen in a strange loop on Twitter… …
As Harry Tuttle (Robert De Niro) said in Brazil (1985 film) [The director’s edition, not the vitiated for America version]:
We are all in it together.
So, behind the scenes at CogSci Apps we have a huge number of feature requests that have not yet made the day.
Here’s something I haven’t even logged as a feature request for, but it being xmas eve , and wanting a present for myself, I thought I would share my wish for Santa for something in the new year (who might respond: “Celebrate legalization, roll up your sleeves and roll your own code”).
I use BBEdit, a lot. What I would find super handy is
Hook to New BBEdit project which unlike what I already have, not only creates a new BBEdit project, but
- adds a fresh copy of each of a bunch of .txt files from my template (cf. Cognitive Productivity books or the How to Turn a TaskPaper File into a Project Information Hub – Hook screencast),
- adds TaskPaper file (based on a template of mine), that is not in the BBEdit project per se but in same folder,
- mesh-links them all together, along with
- and stores them all in place, not in the Hook “Notes” folder.
The files are:
and not in the project :
And they would be named according to the selection (as
Hook to New currently does when creating an individual notes (“meta-doc”) file).
There is automation available in Hook (and perhaps in BBEdit) such that neither Hook nor BBEdit need be changed for this (i.e., this could be done in a script).
would anyone else like this?
Be that as it may (and will be) as we say “dans le monde francophone”,
Joyeux Noël .
