Automatically import manually created markdowns

Hi guys,

I am trying to auto sync markdowns that are automatically generated by a running cron job. So basically, I have a running Joplin desktop instance with webclipper activated and a script that generated a new markdown every 10 minutes. If the script has created a new md file, I am trying to somehow automatically import them to joplin.

I haven't found anything regarding this so any help is appreciated!

You can use the Joplin rest API. Instead of having Joplin manual scan a directory for files to import, your script would manually send a copy of the file to joplin using the API.

The hotfolder script can import md files

And this is exactly what I was looking for! Cheers, mate

Maybe you should create a topic in the #apps category for your tools.
