Title: AutoFetch updates of Notes in Devonthink
Post by andreas grimm on Sep 2nd, 2016, 6:39pm

Tinderbox 6.6.4 and Devonthink 2.9.4 now really play nicely together if one wants to link from a TB-note (using "Copy Note URL") to a DT-note and vice versa (using "Copy Item Link" in DT). Well done!

Now I'd like to use AutoFetch in TB to 1.) fetch note-content from DT-notes which 2.) once updated in Devonthink will be updated in TB as well.

It does not seem to work! - yet?

Ideas?

Cheers!

andreas

Are you allowing long enough? My notes show:


Quote:
AutoFetch runs no more than once every 5 minutes. From v6.4.0, the first update (rule cycle) after (re-)opening a document will always run any AutoFetch operations; this assist with de-bugging AutoFetch operations.


Can you get a local HTML doc's content, (e.g. file:///...) via AutoFetch. It was likely originally designed for Web/Internet content, i.e. accessed via a server on the network, so might not understand local assets.  I'd try fetching something locally before looking at the specific DT/TB context in more depth.

Thanks Mark A. for your reply.

AutoFetching web-URLs seldom takes more than 15 sec. to start working. No problems here.

But you're right: I'm not able to (auto)fetch local HTML doc's content via file:/// since I'm not even able to open a file:///-URL from within tinderbox.

Contacted eastgate already and they let me know that they'll take a look ...

Great idea!
I'd love to hear of the results, should they emerge.

We'll investigate.
