Dynalist_download


#1

I was looking for a way to have more “timestamp history” on entries… a way to track changes. I’m kind of hung up on having a “history” of my documents/outlines/whatever.

I discussed a little with the support folks (thanks Erica!) and they suggested using the API to download things. That got me going in what seems the right track for me and I created a little python utility that periodically downloads my documents (via cron job) and checks them into a git repository in multiple formats so I can delve into the history to my hearts content.

So far, seems to be working fairly well for me.

I still have to deal with attachments (there doesn’t seem to be an API call to discover those, so I guess I’ll parse URLs), and obviously your mileage may vary, but if you are interested:

Hope that helps somebody…
