Applescript for opening Yojimbo Notes in BBEdit

2007-12-19 Thread McGonegal Robert
Has anyone made an Applescript to open a Yojimbo note directly in  
BBEdit?


If not, would the proper procedure be to export the note to disk,  
open it in BBEdit and then have the Finder delete it from disk?

Getting the contents of the note to BBEdit (minus all 
formatting) is trivial, but any edits you make there will be 
lost, and not make it back to Yojimbo.


What are you trying to accomplish?

Basically? Using Yojimbo to store and retrieve text and code  
snippets. Yojimbo's RTF certainly isn't ideal for that but BBEdit  
having it's own database would be very useful.


With do shell script, textutil -convert HTML plus some fancy  
grep, it seems like it'd be possible to preserve what formatting is  
useful and strip the rest out. Run html2text.py at the end and it  
could even end up as Markdown, as another example.


but any edits you make there will be lost, and not make it back to  
Yojimbo.


I'm assuming a second Applescript would be needed to send info back  
to Yojimbo so that'd more properly be a separate topic. But I'm not  
experienced with Applescript so first things first, I thought I'd  
attempt something very trivial to start out.
