potentially useful scripts
Copy URL from clipboard and use dmenu to prompt for memo:
#!/bin/bash later -q -t "$(xsel -b)" "$(dmenu -p memo: <&-)"
Pipe file into dmenu and open selected entry:
#!/bin/bash if [[ -f "$1" ]]; then FILE="$1" else FILE="$HOME/.later" fi later -q -O "$(dmenu -l 30 < $FILE)"
I bind both of the above scripts to keys using my window manager of choice.
Hopefully someone else will find this useful!
I use linux and I dont understand nothing in this post.
