I am big on genealogy and I am getting ready for a New Years resolution to keep a Journal for next year to add to my Family tree.
While there are some nice commercial packages around being a true son of a Scotsman I want to do the project for no cost apart from time…
Taking advantage of Devonthink which I already own I have adapted a Script that has been floating around the forums for number of years.
I have tweaked it to include
- Calendar events (Australian Holidays and Birthdays in my case)
- Quote of the Day
- World News headlines
- Local News Headlines
- Weather Conditions at the time of making the entry
There are a few helpers you need to install plus an API from OpenWeatherMap.org. Instructions for these and Variables are listed at the top of the code.
I have also setup IFTTT to capture all Social Media posts which I will add in manually
I am sure to be tweaking this further so please visit GitHub to check for a later version.
