Show: A small app to add thoughts to your daily note (via Tauri app)

I frequently add small thoughts to my daily note from anywhere on my Mac.

So far, I used a custom workflow in Alfred with a single-line input:

It worked, but I often have multi-line input and then it got clumsy.

As others, I have been searching for a quick capture.

And now I build a very simple app, using Tauri (first Tauri app, actually).
It’s not fancy, but it’s open source, it works.
I combine it with a hotkey from Alfred so I can get it up quickly.

Here’s the code and binary for Mac x64 (have no Silicon to build for those machines).

Everyone loves a screenshot:

It’s really small (~6,5mb) and loads extremely fast.
