Hello Mac Power Users.

I came up with a way to handle day-specific information in OmniFocus. I use a method that I named "Day Projects".

http://zettt.com/blog/day-projects/

Day Projects are basically projects that are named after the date they are due. For example "Mon: 28. 12. 2015", "Tue: 29. 12. 2015".

This opens up a lot of nifty possibilities. Like filing from the inbox. Just type "mo", and the Monday project comes up. Hit return, done. When the calendar is synced, the tasks show up there too.

I hope you guys enjoy this. My blog post has some more context and information for this.

Here's a little thing that I'm using for almost *3 years* now. It's an automation setup to quickly open a tab from an iPhone on a Mac.

I use Day One to collect quotes. I also want to have a random quote on my desktop. At the moment GeekTool does that. 
On top I have a TextExpander snippet that outputs a random quote from my quotes as.

To export the quotes from Day One it always used to be a huge pain because I had to run the export through several regular expressions. Luckily there are ways to automate Day One.

Problems and Questions  - 
 
I found it cumbersome to share my current location with friends, so they can easier find me, out and about. You never know who has which device, and what maps app. With Drafts 4 it's super-easy to build a workflow that shares the location easily, and universally. I've tested this with Google Maps and Apple Maps. Just paste latitude and longitude coordinates in the search field and the app drops a pin.

Noch ein Schmankerl das ich aus So tickt YouTube auslassen musste.

# Thema: Rasiervideos

Die Hersteller von Rasierequipment wie bspw. Rasierseife oder -pinsel gehen dazu über "Custom Equipment" herzustellen. Pinsel werden mit einem bzw. mehrerer YouTuber gelabelt und an diese zum Geschenk verschickt. Die Produkte gibt es dann sogar noch zu kaufen. Im Falle von Anthony kann man sich die Seife und After Shave bei Razorock kaufen. 

# Beispiele:

Hey Power Users,

Are you also affected by the bug where apps on iOS 9 just won't finish installing?

I found a workaround to make the app finish, and I made a video for you to follow. Actually just tap-and-hold the icon until the download is done. Check it out:

Keyboard Maestro  - 
 
I'm using this productivity script for OmniFocus for an incredible amount of time now. After 2 years, I still find it insanely useful.

http://zettt.com/blog/day-projects/

The script basically creates a couple of new projects named after the weekday they're due. You can file day-relevant tasks into them, and because the container has a due date, the tasks inside have a due date too. When you subscribe to the OmniFocus calendar, you'll see them in the calendar as well.

All in all really simple.

I use this with Keyboard Maestro to let the script run once a week.

I've been checking out JavaScript for OS X automation. It's quite powerful. We get a lot, but there's practically no documentation available, in terms of code. This post contains some links to get you started.

No, the integration is basically a 100% equivalent to AppleScript. Everything you can do in AS, you can do JXA.

Hi, I’m Andreas. I make screencasts. Mainly for Mac and iOS, but who knows which OS you need a screencast for?
