How is everyone web clipping?

I’m using Agenda as my main notes app. I love the timeline nature, tags, and tasks but one thing I’m missing is an ability to capture and store web snippets/articles.

At the moment I copy the URL and paste it, then copy the top paragraph and paste it which is really clunky.

I know there is a talk of a web clipper, but how is everyone getting around this until this is built? Any fancy Applescripts, automator or keyboard maestro stuff anyone is willing to share?

thanks in advance.

What do you think of this shortcut?

It should ask for the project in Agenda to store clips, and then use it from the Safari share function to create a note with the name of the webpage and, if any, selected content on the page.

Hope this helps!

Hi Scotty,

Thanks for this, works a treat.

I notice you have to select the text you want to clip, so I’m going to see if I can modify to automatically create an excerpt. I’ll also try and take the general concept to create a Mac version.

Indeed. I thought about including the content, but maybe limited to a paragraph or two, but the content comes out weird from some websites that makes it look ugly/unuseful in Agenda.

I’d be happy to see this improved upon!

Sharing on iOS is high on our list. We have even started that project, so it should appear this year sometime, all going well.
