tag-extract: A tool to automatically restructure text/outline using tags June 13, 2012, [MD] I created a tool that can reorganize an outline in text format with simple @tags, using the hierarchical format of the file to "intelligently" group subcategories together, and tag lines with their top-level category. I provide examples of how this can be used for a literature review, or for qualitative research. Moving ideas around An Introduction to APIs About This Course Have you ever wondered how Facebook is able to automatically display your Instagram photos? How about how Evernote syncs notes between your computer and smartphone? If so, then it’s time to get excited! In this course, we walk you through what it takes for companies to link their systems together.

Save Gmail Attachments in Your Dropbox If you receive a lot of attachments in your email, you must have noticed that it becomes hard to find a file received a long time ago. Then you wish yo u had saved the file locally instead of just relying on the email server. What if there was a way to save all your attachments automatically to a certain place? How I keep notes I keep a large number of notes in Notational Velocity, which has two key advantages: entering and subsequently retrieving notes is very fast, and notes can be stored as individual text files in a directory. Speed Creating a new note requires no mouse-clicks, and only a few key-presses: Cmd-space to open Quicksilver, “no” to select notational velocity, and enter to launch it. Then Cmd-L moves the cursor to the title area, and I can type the title for the new note. Hitting enter moves to the body of the note, so I can type the note itself, then hit Cmd-Q to close the application and go back to whatever I was doing. This is incredibly fast, and makes note-taking minimally disruptive to other tasks.

Send Google Mail to Evernote - HarryOnline Evernote is a great system to organize your notes, and to remember everything. You often want to add email message to Evernote, for example to add it to a To-do list. Evernote makes this possible by providing an email address, to which you can forward other messages–they will then be added to your other notes. But you still have to tag them, and you may want to put them in a different notebook. This can also be done by appending notebook and tags to the subject line, but this takes time and you can easily make a typing mistaken. The method described here makes it much faster and easier: simply drag tags and notebook to the message, that’s it.
