Links to TB notes from external applications?
Jun 11th, 2014, 1:12pm
 
Hi,
Is it now possible to get links to specific notes in TB that also work from external applications?

There's an experimental protocol. The easiest way to start is to right-click any tab and choose "Copy URL of this tab".  You'll get a URL which other programs can use to select that tab.

This is very much a work in progress; more will be coming in the nearish future.

Thanks!
It would be great if the link would use a unique note ID so the links would hold even if you move them around. Is that the plan for the future perhaps?

It's being considered.

When I tried this, the URL didn't link to the existing tab, but opened a new Map tab. And the map it shows is blank?

Works correctly here. If your mileage varies, send (a) your document, (b) the url you're using, and (c) what you observe in and email to info@eastgate.com.

Hi,
Just wondering if there is any update on this?

It's in the roadmap, but it's not at all trivial -- and the underlying operating system appears to have its own opinions on the matter. And these are shifting, if I read the tea leaves correctly.

I think it'll happen, in other words, but probably not this month.
