Tutorial Intro


This documentation is for journal-cli v2, which is currently in beta. Documentation for v1 can be found here.

Let's get started with journal-cli in about 5 minutes or less.

Getting Started#

  1. Ensure you have a default application set for .md files.
  2. Install the latest version of PowerShell for your system.
  3. Install journal-cli: Install-Module JournalCli.
  4. Restart your PowerShell terminal or run Import-Module JournalCli. (You do not need to do both; journal-cli will automatically be imported into new PowerShell sessions after installation.)
  5. Run Set-JournalSettings -Location C:\Path\To\Your\Journal. Be sure to use a path appropriate for your operating system.
  6. Run New-JournalEntry -Tags something,something-else and start writing!
