I was looking into how to do something really simple using Drafts and
Todoist on Saturday.
The basic idea was that I wanted an easy way to either add or create a
new project and then add a series of tasks to it. (First line is the
project, and the rest is tasks).
Well. I thought, this is a perfect opportunity to play around with
Workflow. So, I made the damn thing and then I also did it using
The verdict? It took way shorter time using Pythonista because I know
how it works, but I think something like Workflow is the right tool, if
you don’t know how to code.
This is a common thing I often see myself doing. When something is very
simple, I almost always end up writing it myself, because then I don’t
need to learn all the “jargon” and metaphysics every single system
The difficult thing is to know when to write it yourself, and when to
learn what is already there.
