A very simple Joplin Plugin to send your current note as an email to your browser or email client of choice. ✉

A quick overview:

  • Click the mail icon in the Joplin toolbar to send an email
  • The note title will be the subject, the note content will be the body of the email
  • Works via the command palette too
  • Filters the # from the headings from your note
    • Only works with correctly spaced # something headings
  • There's also an option to convert to HTML instead
  • Right click selected text to only send the selection

Feel free to tell me your suggestions on how to improve it! 😄

Original Joplin Plugin Readme:

Joplin Plugin

This is a template to create a new Joplin plugin.

The main two files you will want to look at are:

  • /src/index.ts, which contains the entry point for the plugin source code.
  • /src/manifest.json, which is the plugin manifest. It contains information such as the plugin a name, version, etc.

Building the plugin

The plugin is built using Webpack, which creates the compiled code in /dist. A JPL archive will also be created at the root, which can use to distribute the plugin.

To build the plugin, simply run npm run dist.

The project is setup to use TypeScript, although you can change the configuration to use plain JavaScript.

Updating the plugin framework

To update the plugin framework, run npm run update.

In general this command tries to do the right thing - in particular it's going to merge the changes in package.json and .gitignore instead of overwriting. It will also leave "/src" as well as untouched.

The file that may cause problem is "webpack.config.js" because it's going to be overwritten. For that reason, if you want to change it, consider creating a separate JavaScript file and include it in webpack.config.js. That way, when you update, you only have to restore the line that include your file.
