Vim as your daily log notebook
There are probably hundreds of methods and software that have been written that can help you maintain a notebook that contains your daily logs and notes.
I have tried tens of methods and software and after a few days they just feel like bloat or take up too much time to maintain regularly.
So, I decided to break down my own problem and found a simplisitic method/solution that suits me. My need was to write two logs, one life log and one dev log which was distraction free and would not take more than a second to get started with.
I finally ended up with editing my
vimrc. Now, I just end up doing the following every morning:
- Open the terminal
(ctrl + t)
today[This opens a split window having my life log and dev log side by side]
nlog<space>to start a new log entry.
