Elfeed and Reeder a month ago

From Summer Emacs to ~skeeto/public-inbox

Hi,

I'm pretty new to emacs (been using it a few months) and I'm not a coder
at all - I use it for notes/org-mode/email and capturing. But since I
use it for so much now, I've been meaning to check out Elfeed. I love
the idea of integrating my articles so tightly with my org system.

However, I mostly read RSS feeds on Reeder on my iPad Pro/mini and
iPhone. I'm wondering: Can elfeed sync read items with Reeder in some
way? Reeder saves stuff to a file in iCloud which is synced across my
devices so maybe there's a way to read from that file? Has anyone done
this? I sub to a lot of feeds so I'd be getting tons of duplicate stuff
to go over if I can't do it this way.

Done.

Perfect. =)

I've reviewed it and included questions below (and thank you very much

Hi Prot =)
Thank you for your answer.

I definitely want to store notes in two or three different places after
having thought about it and I'll explain why:

Multiple Directories? 2 months ago

From Summer Emacs to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi again =)

Since I was considering renaming other files outside of my notes
directory with the denote format, I was wondering: Is it possible to
have to declare multiple notes directories?

Currently, I have: (not sure how to format this in mu4e)

---
(setq denote-dired-directories
      (list denote-directory
            (thread-last denote-directory (expand-file-name "attachments"))
            (expand-file-name "~/Documents/sync/org/")))

Importing Old Journal from Org-Roam 2 months ago

From Summer Emacs to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi,

I hope that I'm not doing something bad by asking a question on here
instead of contributing - I'm new to all of this. =)

I was wondering how I can import a dozen or so journal entries from
org-roam into denote. I don't want the note creation date to be today
(or tomorrow), etc...but I want it to reflect the time and date of the
journal entry when I originally made it.

Is there a way, or do I have to just make the note, copy/paste, and then
edit the ID by hand in dired? I only have about a dozen or so to import
so it wouldn't be really bad to do it that way, but I just was wondering
if there was a better way that somebody might be aware of.
