The editor is the most advanced part of Diarly. It allows you to write your entries in plain text, and have them formatted immediately.

Diarly Editor

The editor supports Markdown, and multiple auto-completion options:

  • Type [[ to link to other entries and notes. Select one from the list, or keep typing a name or date to find the note you want to link to.
  • Type : followed by the name of an emoji to insert an emoji, like so: :smile: 😄
  • Type / to open the insert menu, such as the current time, location, weather, and more.

Accessing some tools is different on Mac and iOS, so please refer to our dedicated articles for each platform.
