One of the key features of Gthnk is that it runs on your computer - not in the cloud - so you can keep your thoughts private. However, sometimes you’re on the road and you really want to write something down.
This scenario is no problem for Gthnk - just use a service like Dropbox or Seafile to sync your journal buffers back to your computer. This permits you to take non-sensitive notes even when you’re not by your computer.
Journal buffers via Dropbox¶
Gthnk can import any number of journal buffers every day. Edit
INPUT_FILES in the configuration file
~/Library/Gthnk/gthnk.conf and add any Dropbox files there.
Since Dropbox is usually
~/Dropbox, you might create a file called
~/Dropbox/journal-phone.txt for capturing notes that come from your phone. To accomplish this, you would edit the configuration like this:
INPUT_FILES = "/Users/me/Dropbox/journal-phone.txt,/Users/me/Desktop/journal.txt"
Now Gthnk will import entries from the file on your Desktop and from your phone. It doesn’t matter if these files are empty most of the time; that doesn’t bother Gthnk.
