Since I’m mentioning small, built-in bonuses to some established programs, I have another I can point out.
I discovered the other day that Vimwiki has a built-in function that’s not far off from that.
\w\w from vim’s control mode drops you straightaway to a diary page prenamed for today’s date.
Diary entries are kept in a subfolder inside your wiki data folder, and have their own index page, which looks sort of like this.
= Diary = | [[2011-04-11]] | [[2011-04-10]] | [[2011-04-09]] | [[2011-04-08]] |
The table grows from left to right, meaning your newest entry is always on the left. Rather convenient, really.
