Post journal entries from 1Writer on iOS

We’ve recently made some major additions to our API, and there has been quite a bit of interest around them. Today we will demonstrate a 1Writer action, where you can create journal entries and notes from the powerful markdown editor app on iOS.

After you’ve installed 1Writer from the App Store, you can install the Tradervue Journal entry action from the directory. Once installed in 1Writer, you’ll need to add your Tradervue username and password to the script, so it can use your account. Tap the “…” button in the lower left corner of the 1Writer editor, and tap the “i” icon next to the Tradervue Journal entry action:

Then in the source code for the action, enter your Tradervue username and password at the top of the script. So change the first four lines to look something like this, but with your own username/password:

// Enter your Tradervue username and password below
username = "joe_user";
password = "seekrit";
//

Then you can close the action and go back to the editor.

Now, when you tap the “…” button in the editor, you’ll see a list of options:

If you tap “Open today’s journal entry”, it will open the notes for today’s journal entry in the current note in 1Writer:

You can then edit that entry, perhaps adding some additional notes to the end:

Then tap the “…” button again, and select “Save today’s journal entry”, and it will be saved to Tradervue as you would expect:

You can also save the current note in 1Writer as a new Journal note – if you haven’t used them before, see Journal Notes in Tradervue.

Note that this action is primarily intended as an API sample, and is unsupported – but that said, it’s super handy, so feel free to use it!
