Being able to export as an easy format ready to programmatic processing, for example as a text format such as JSON or documented binary format

    Since you are putting Dyrii in maintenance mode, then I think this should be added as a priority. Exporting in DayOne format would probably be the best bet.

    We are thinking about adding json, markdown, and textbundle export formats in a future release. We don't have an ETA yet, but I will keep this post open until then.

    Hi,

     

    any update on this? I've checked .dyrii package (that's really .zip) and it's a mix of few .json files + attachments. Export to single .json + one attachment (currently you have separate json for days & content tags) would be really useful.

    I think you’re morally obliged to provide a usable export at the earliest opportunity

    “Morally obliged” ?? Haha. Let’s let the developer pick and ask what he’s going to release if anything. Otherwise go develop your own software and listen to the noise.

    Peter - Can you define what you mean by usable export? We already provide exports in PDF and .dyrii formats. .dyrii format is our custom format which is quite open and similar to DayOne's json format. If other developers are interested in using our format, I will have to provide documentation on how to read that file format.

    The problem is that the claim is made on your website that it is future proof with export options... 

    I purchased the app going on the information provided, only now to learn that those features aren’t there.

    It would be great if the export option followed a format that is accepted by others. If we could have a compat "Day One Classic" export format it would be great as right now it feels locked in
