What’s going on here?
Paper organizers work better for me than electronic ones; as soon as I open my computer in the morning, I’m lost. The Bullet Journal fills a void that rigid preprinted layouts just can’t fill: layouts that match exactly how I think about my day. YouTubers have taken the flexible and accessible system created by Ryder Carroll to a whole new level that honestly overwhelms and intimidates me. So I’m not going to doodle. I’m going to code.
How it’s organized: By Month and By Programming Language.
Why each month?
I don’t know what my perfect layouts will be. I don’t know what my perfect process will be. It will evolve month by month, so the layouts generated each month will be a little bit tweaked. That said, I want a record of what I learned, what the layouts looked like, and I want to be able to refer back without trolling through git histories.
Why multiple languages?
Why SVG? Well, I want an AxiDraw and I need some justifications before I can bring another tool into the house.
How to use the repo
Missing layouts I probably am working with a draft done in Pages. They’ll show up eventually. Got to get some real work done.
Pretty straightforward for 2.7. This version of the language comes bundled in most operating systems.
- Get a file.
- Open the file.
- Change the variables so the right dates / content will be used.
- Open the directory (
cd DIRECTORY/LOCATION) where the file lives in the command line
- Run the file (
There are fancier ways to work with Python, but they aren’t needed yet.
