Export Data (Markdown)


#1

I enjoy the “Copy view as text”, but I could see this being available as a export format (not importable).


#2

Do you mean export the whole database as markdown? This is possible of course, but I need to understand the use case better. I mean we can’t just dump every item including it’s metadata to markdown (unlike JSON or CSV). Well we could, but why?


#3

Do you mean export the whole database as markdown?

No, I would imagine it would be more valuable to have certain “views” exported as markdown. I imagine the simplest would be each of the “actions” tabs correspond to an output file.

Well we could, but why?

My primary motivation is that I really like to track stuff under git and I think markdown is much more readable.

I think this idea would be cool, but it might be a pretty small niche of people who would be interested.


#4

I see, this makes sense. It might be even better to provide extensibility in this area, so that the user could write custom functions to format the view in any way, including markdown.
