How to streamline the creation of new zettels in The Archive?
Looking for a method to streamline how I create new zettels when working in The Archive. What tools do you recommend for this?
My zettels are named
YYMMDDYYMM Title of the zettel.md
while the template for the zettels is
title: Title of the zettel
When creating zettels on my iOS devices, using Drafts, I've automated this process. But on MacOS, it's still a manual process:
- Press Cmd-N
- Invoke a Textexpander abbrivation that populates the zettel with the template above
- Make sure that the uid in the file name matches the uid Textexpander put into the zettel. Not always the case. If I'm moving to fast between two new zettels, it's still the same minute. The Archive automatically increases the uid with 1, while the Textexpander doesn't.
- Enter the title in the zettel's content, markit, copy, right click to change name, paste it.
How are you all automating this?
