Here is a simple script that will create a journal entry in Day One with a notation about a selected document in DEVONthink. Select the document, run the script, enter whatever note you wish, and click OK. Day One uses Markdown syntax, so the new entry is Markdown-ified. The entry has a link-back URL to the selected document in DEVONthink. Journal entries with the link, and sync’d to Day One on iPhone or iPad, will open the document in DTTG if it has been synced from DEVONthink to DTTG.
(* Make a Day One journal entry linked to this document.

If the Day One CLI is not installed, or is in a different location from /usr/local/bin/dayone, the script will fail silently.
