Word count is a useful core plugin, but for those of us who monitor our productivity, it would be useful to know how many new notes were created on a given day, and how many notes were revised. E.g. zettelkasten users could track literature vs permanent notes to make sure they are turning notes into papers.
I’d like to see this as a template that you can insert into the daily note (or any note). Options for # of new notes, # revised notes, and a choice of which tags to track.
I used ConnectedText for many years, and it allowed you to insert a code in any page to track notes. I am certain this alone boosted my productivity.
