Making local filesystem blog integration work
The goal here is to have my local notes repository (text files in Dropbox accessed via Notational Velocity) and my blog (my de facto note-taking solution for years) be the same set of stuff with different views.

  • Don't try to make sync work. Sync never works. (Or rather, let Dropbox handle syncing.) Dropbox is the system of record and it pushes out to other services. That means if I want to be able to create / edit posts from the blog interface I'll need to have them call the Dropbox API.
  • Notational Velocity and the blog have different conventions for outlining, need to be reconciled.
  • Should be able to crosspost to FB and Twitter
  • Convention: #fb #tw #tpc in the title xpost to Facebook / Twitter / blog
  • Problem: Facebook and Twitter items don't have titles.
  • Means finally moving to flat categories, once and for all.
  • Can I get Twitter replies / FB comments to come back the other way?
