Issue Box Dev Diary #3

Major achievement to end the week, there are issues in the issues app! Well the basic details of them anyway. There’s still a lot to sync up yet. Each issue can have comments and attachments which need syncing, along with versions, users, milestones and components to which an issue can be assigned.

New Reminder Using JXA

Here is a quick code snippet for creating new Reminders in a specific list using JavaScript for Automation (JXA) in macOS.

var reminders = Application("Reminders");
var newReminder = reminders.Reminder({ name: "Title for reminder", body: "Notes for the reminder"});
reminders.lists.byName("List Name").reminders.push(newReminder);

Adding Custom Import File Types

I needed to import an OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language) file from with-in an iOS app. The OPML format is a XML format used for storing outlines but is also commonly used to share lists of subscriptions between RSS feed readers and podcast players.
