Hmm, that sounds like a good first step.
Perhaps I start by implementing it as a plugin, and if there is appetite for it, could be consolidated into the base application. It can be a bit of a pain installing plugins for all these sorts of things
Is it possible to have it be a part of the built in shortcut system so users are able to re-assign it? I think the core time-date feature is ctrl shift t and I've re-assigned it as ctrl t since I wasn't using whatever ctrl t was.
Somehow I totally missed that insert date/time button and am thrilled it can be used in the note title. Thanks for pointing it out. I use dated title notes for a journal and this will save me some time starting entries.
I took at a look at the note template page, but it's not clear to me how to use custom_datetime or moments.js. What would I have to do if I wanted to quickly insert YYMMDD (e.g. 210225 for Feb 25, 2021) in the editor pane or the title bar?
Thanks. I didn't realize it was so easy. But I think I had to edit it to be custom_datetime before I got it to work. Also, I had a hard time saving an .md file (as opposed to .txt file); finally had to use Typora.
And as far as I understand, the use of templates is limited to date/time related items?
What you need to know from moment.js is only the string format it accept. See tables under this paragraph: Moment.js | Docs
Edit .md files:
Last thing: edit md file does not require Typora (that also is a good markdown editor). A markdown file is a plain text file. You can edit it with notepad (or any plain text editor like VS Code, Vim, Notepad++, etc etc) and then save with the .md extension (if you save it ad .txt you can simply rename it and change the extension).
