N.A.N.Y. 2019: logpad for Vim and GNU Emacs
« on: July 29, 2018, 07:04 PM »
Just throwing together my other 2019 applications before writing new ones...

NANY 2019 Entry Information

Application Name logpad
Short Description Writing a journal with Vim and GNU Emacs.
Supported OSes Any which have Vim or GNU Emacs.
Web Page https://www.donation...ndex.php?topic=45696
Download Link Vim script, GNU Emacs plugin.
System Requirements
  • logpad.vim: Vim.
  • logpad.el: GNU Emacs.
Author me (both)

logpad simulates the Windows Notepad logging behavior by automatically inserting the current timestamp on top of a file which starts with ".LOG".

- Automatically creates a journal for you.



- logpad.vim: Download the script file and load it with your preferred package manager (or manually).
- logpad.el: Download logpad via MELPA and start logpad-mode: M-x logpad-mode.

Using the Application
All you need is logpad (or Notepad  ;D) and a file that starts with ".LOG". Everything else is automagic.

Known Issues
The GNU Emacs variant could be more flexible.
