devonThinkToDayOne – Apple Script


An AppleScript to export item(s) from DEVONthink to Day One.


Download and install Day One Command Line Interface:


  1. Open DEVONthink and select the entries you want to export. You can select 1 or more than 1.
  2. Run the script. An entry will be made into Day One for each entry you selected in DEVONthink.


To make the name of the DEVONthink entry a header in Day One, set the following property to ON:

property dayHeader : "OFF"

By default the create date of the entry in DEVONthink is used as the entry date in Day One. I organize my entries in DEVONthink like: 20110101-journal, 20110102-journal. If you use this format, set the following property to “ON”

property extractDateFromTitle : "OFF"

Note: you can modifiy the script if you use a diffent format for you note name.


The inspiration for this script came from:
