Where Text Starts™ and David Blue Ends.


This is my repository for AgileTortoise's Drafts, of which I've been a customer/user for the majority of my adult life.

I have long pondered creating an unofficial chat-format space for the Drafts community and finally decided to just have a go! @draftsapp is a public Telegram Group for anyone and everyone to discuss Drafts. See its corresponding issue in this repo for more details.

This is a collection of my personal “Autocomplete Suggestions” (identical to what TextExpander calls “snippets”) for Drafts, and they are installable, if you’d like.

Definitely read Tim Nahumck’s work on this feature if you’re curious about it.


The hyperlinks on the expansion triggers will take you a corresponding plain text file containing the installation URL (which is, of course, the entire contents of each, encoded in a string.) Copy the full text of the URL, paste it in your web browser, and tap/click “Go” (or your equivalent)/key RETURN or ENTER. Regardless of platform, you should receive a prompt asking if you’d like to open it in Drafts.

Here’s a wee demo video:
